I don’t know if it’s because we’re wearing our Spanx as tight as they used to wear their corsets, but we are as crazy about chaise lounges (or fainting couches…) as those 19th-century women were. Even if you don’t expressly need a place to lounge because your undergarments are restricting the flow of oxygen to your brain, there is no better place to relax than a couch built for one — or two if you’re in a snuggly mood.

This oceanfront living room is a beyond amazing place to curl up and watch late-night movies with the sound of the ocean in the background. We just might want to turn those chairs the other way to admire the view…

Giraffe print is fabulous in any room, but we especially like it in a nursery because, as the baby grows and the room transitions, the print doesn’t have to change one bit.

Isn’t everything better when it’s tufted?

A chaise in the bathroom is so glamorous. Wouldn’t you want to spend more time lounging in your bathroom if it looked like that?

We love the juxtaposition of the starfish with the french frame. It’s so fun for a coastal home!

Candace Bushnell’s Living Room

I am unbelievably jealous of Candace Bushnell’s pink chaise lounge and now devastated that the one I picked for my office is white. What a great place to peruse a great novel… Sex and the City, anyone?
