At the height of their popularity in the 18th and 19th centuries, the chaise longue was customarily used as a "fainting couch" for women wearing tightly-fitting and blood flow-restricting corsets. We hope you don't have to use the Josephine brown leather Victorian chaise to escape from an uncomfortable corset, but you will find it to be a comfortable, stylish resting place nevertheless! The chaise features a solid wood frame, dense foam cushioning, upholstery in brown bonded leather with matching button tufting, and black wood legs. Non-marking feet and a matching throw pillow are included. The legs require assembly.
