For the longest times, chaise lounges have been something you typically only encountered in luxury settings – be it at your hard-earned vacation to an exclusive beach resort, an upper-scale hotel room, while touring the estates of nobility, or in glimpses into the lives of TV and movie starlets when they opened their doors for home-stories in magazines.
These days, thankfully, are over.
Chaise lounges have become a more and more frequent sight in gardens, at pool-sides, on terraces, in lounges and front-rooms, and -most notably- in a bed-room setting. While still not common per se, those lovely pieces of furniture have irrevocably taken up residence in the lives and homes of people like you and me.
Now, you might ask yourself what is a chaise lounge exactly?
A chaise lounge, or chaise, is basically a sofa that has resulted out of a combination of a chair and a footstool. It usually comes with a high, slanted back and enough room to stretch out comfortably. An arm-rest is possible, and the classic chaises generally do have them, but it cannot necessarily be considered a defining feature.
As a whole, chaise lounges are perfect for reading and unwinding, and are typically found as relaxing sun loungers, comfortable add-ons to sectional sofas, and luxurious recliners in spacious bedrooms these days.
In other words, chaise lounges are the perfect furniture to lay back and just let yourself enjoy (a good book, a glass of wine, the vista, lovely company, deep conversation, peaceful silence,…).
And the good news is, that you can afford to indulge yourself and have this spot of luxury in your life – for a very reasonably price! We have collected some of the best chaise lounges (both indoor and outdoor) for under 100$ on the market for you below. The only question remaining is which one you’ll chose!

Outdoor Chaise Lounges
Chaise lounges, by their very nature, are the perfect seating for sun-lovers. Thanks to their slanted back and wide leg-room they are perfect for comfortably basking in the summer heat without having to switch position every few minutes to combat getting a crick in the neck while trying to read or work on a deckchair, to shift away from stones that you haven’t even noticed when you spread your blanket out in the grass, or to get rid of the annoying ants that have decided you are just another surmountable obstacle in their path.
Typically, you will want to settle for comfortably cushioned chaise lounges if you plan on using them somewhere in your back garden or on your patio, and will want to choose something plainer (simple wood or webbing) when you plan on lounging on it after a dip in the pool.
