The Guide to Chaise Lounge Replacement Parts and Repairs
Chaise lounges are the perfect chair for comfort and relaxation outside on your patio, on your deck, or in your yard. They allow you that full stability of a seat whilst offering relaxed recline-ability. This guide will let you know everything about these great chairs and specifically how you can source the correct replacement parts so that you can carry out any repairs yourself.
Types of Chaise Lounge
There are two main types of chaise lounge that are available in patio or outdoor furniture. Firstly, there are the sling style chaise lounges and then there are the strap style chaise lounges.
Sling - Sling chaise lounges have several pieces of fabric that are fixed to a frame. These slings can be removed and replaced to repair a chaise lounge or to give it a new lease of life.
Strap - Strap chaise lounges are made up of vinyl straps that are placed in rows along the chair’s frame. Straps can be replaced either individually or as a full set should you need to repair your chaise lounge or want to give it a makeover.
