Let's say we're all bees. Each and every one of us is buzzing about-
buzz buzz buzz.
The honey that we make is our lives. Experience has taught me two things...

KILLER BEES MAKE THE MOST DELICIOUS HONEY

...and LIFE is only as yummy as you make it!

Are YOU a Killer Bee?

Furniture History: Chez Mois?


chaise longue

[sheyz lawng, cheyz; Fr. shez lawng]

–noun,
plural chaise lounges, French chaises lounges
a chair, with or without arms, for reclining, having a seat lengthened to form a complete leg rest, and sometimes an adjustable back.


Origin:
1790–1800; <>chaise lounge by folk

Last month I started a new series on furniture history. The first profile was on the tete a tete, also known as "The Lovers Seat." This month I give you the venerable chaise, which in juxtaposition, is the place to go when you want to love yourself. No, not like that.

The chaise began its historical journey as a single seat carriage for royalty, and has remained a popular piece of home decor for centuries. Why? Because its the go-to place when you need to retreat, relax, and recline. Because it is constantly being reinvented and redesigned for your singular style and comfort- yours, and yours ALONE. And because when you feel the need for repose, there's no other piece of furniture that can make you feel like a King, or a Queen!
