No other piece of furniture, indoor or out, exudes such old-time glamour as the elegant chaise. It's almost impossible, even in unwavering 100-degree heat, to look anything but cucumber cool while reclining on a chaise lounge (preferably with a large glass of iced tea).

On the other hand, the chaise, with its chic shapeliness, exudes a certain sexy sizzle. Whatever the material of its making - metal, rattan, wood, even plastic - this seductive item fairly commands you to strike an alluring pose.

The following chaises are among our favorites for summer 2000.Lisa Martin is a Dallas-area free-lance writer.

LUXURIOUS LOUNGING: Perfect for lingering poolside, Ethan Allen's Transitions Chaise, crafted of powder-coated aluminum in an antique-bronze finish, comes with an adjustable back and loose cushion. The chaise costs $800; cushions are $260 and up, depending on the fabric selection. For locations, visit or call 1-800-228-9229.

2. (Brown and Jordan) VA-VOOM VINYL: This is vinyl seating worthy of Marilyn Monroe or earlyJane Fonda. Brown and Jordan's Streamline Chaise Lounge ($1,900) boasts an elegant elliptical profile, while the opaque tubular vinyl, which covers the piece, shimmers with brightly colored tints.
