1. Relaxing By The Fire With Two Chaise Lounges
One chaise lounge in a living room is already uncommon; two chaise lounges in a living room not only makes a bold statement but is highly functional.

3. Lounge And Enjoy The Scenery
If the view beyond your living room is particularly scenic, consider placing a chaise lounge by the windows. That way you can lay down, relax, and never tire of the view. This mild burgundy chaise lounge pairs exceptionally well with the living room's tan color scheme and the lush green beyond. Consider some additional accent decor like a houseplant to complement the chaise lounge.
4. Conversational Setup
If your living room is used primarily for conversation with friends and family, consider incorporating a chaise lounge like this one. It is positioned to face the other chairs in the living room, helping to facilitate conversation. The chaise lounge's plaid color is everything cozy and homey, and it works well with the room's overall color scheme.
Without the addition of this chaise lounge, the room would be rather lacking. It fills the space nicely without looking overfilled.
5. Contemporary Chaise Lounge In Sleek Living Room
This is a more contemporary take on the chaise lounge. It has a low profile and is everything sleek and modern. In this low-key living room, the chaise lounge is the primary piece of furniture. With this kind of setup, who wouldn't enjoy lounging around all day?
Additionally, it's a good idea to opt for a neutral-colored chaise lounge, as it will blend seamlessly with any living room's aesthetic.
6. Color-Coordinated Chaise Lounge
This is another low-profile chaise lounge that serves as the perfect accent piece in this contemporary living room. The chaise lounge matches the accent pillows on the couch and the candles on the coffee table, creating an amazing contrasting color scheme with the surrounding gray. The chaise lounge is also positioned to promote conversation across the room.
By strategically coordinating the color of the chaise lounge with the surrounding furniture, you can make the piece more or less of a focal point in the room.
7. Luxurious Modern Chaise Lounge By The Fire
This white leather chaise lounge is situated just off the main living room area by this luxurious fireplace.

9. Neutral-Colored Chaise Lounge
If your living room has a casual aesthetic, consider incorporating a neutral-colored chaise lounge like this one. Being neutral-colored, this chaise lounge isn't the decorative focal point of this living room but rather a functional accent piece that supports the overall aesthetic. Additionally, the fabric of the chaise lounge matches the fabric of the sofa so as to not create too much textural contrast.
Place the chaise lounge at a slight angle to break up the geometric monotony of the living room and achieve a more unique look.
10. Boho And Trendy Living Room Accent
Being a unique and relatively uncommon piece of furniture, a chaise lounge is the perfect addition to a living room with a boho aesthetic. When not in use, a chaise lounge is a great place to put an accent pillow that promotes the room's look. When in doubt, choose a chaise lounge with a neutral color, as it is sure to suit just about any space.
11. Luxurious Ambiance
