What is the difference between a chaise lounge sofa and a chaise lounge chair?

Technically, the two are quite similar – both inclusive of a ‘chaise’. Often, you’ll find L-shaped sofas or couches called chaise lounges: this is simply a sofa with a chaise attached to the end of it, creating the familiar ‘L-shape’. 

Therefore, a chaise lounge chair is a separate piece of furniture that is often added to a lounge setting. Oftentimes, doubling as a daybed as well as being a popular option for smaller living rooms or home offices.
