Except when you have visitors in your home or are a visitor in someone else's, exactly how long do you ever really just sit on a sofa or in an upholstered chair?How long does it take before you begin to lean, to slouch, to drape yourself over a padded arm, to put your feet up on the coffee table or to draw your legs up on the cushion beside you?Humans, by nature, are not good sitters. We like to sprawl, recline, stretch out and curl up. We like to lie on our sides with our head propped on a hand or a pillow or two, or on our backs with head and knees elevated.

Big room, coffered ceiling, bright light through Palladian windows, scores of lexicographers surrounded by reference books and notes, delicately picking at their noiseless keyboards.

Campers can have a roof over their heads and a bed under their backsides all in one piece with Kamp-Rite's new Tent Cot, a reclining aluminum chaise with its own tent attached. Mesh doors and windows with roll-up covers can provide ventilation on all four sides, while keeping out bugs. The chaise legs keep the occupant 11 inches off the ground -- blessedly above mud and crawly things. An optional rain fly keeps the drops out. At 18 pounds, the Tent Cot is not for backpacking, but it's good for car camping -- or even as a mini "guest room" indoors.

My living room has the sort of contemporary style seen in many interior-design magazines. It's gotten kind of boring, however, and now I'd like to introduce a couple of different-looking pieces. I'm thinking of substituting a pair of love seats for the two lounge chairs that now flank the fireplace. But would seating pieces of that sort look too heavy in the middle of the room? Wouldn't they cut off the view of the fireplace from other chairs? It's actually pretty common to situate love seats on either side of a fireplace in a spacious room.

Michael Winegrad of I. Michael Interior Design adde excitement to the mundane architecture of a standard development house in Pikesville with this half-round master bedroom addition.The addition, which satisfied his clients' craving for the unusual, dramatically alters the look of the house from the back. Rather than attempting to camouflage its shape by matching the materials with the rest of the house, the clients and designer opted to highlight the difference by selecting pale cedar siding as a statement of contrast.

The young professional woman dreamed of having a chaise from the '30s or '40s in her Charles Village apartment. She imagined a piece of furniture that would have made the perfect setting for Marlene Dietrich to sexily dangle a long cigarette holder while seducing Cary Grant.But none of the new chaises the woman saw fit her taste or her pocketbook. The fabrics were rough or the wrong color. The designs were too modern. And the prices were hovering around $1,000 to $1,200.It took three months of canvassing antique shops and used furniture stores, but she finally found the chaise of her fantasy for $175 in the basement of Good Buy Girls on Maryland Avenue.

An 1812 portrait of a sulky Baltimore gentleman - with a teased "spit curl" in his dark hair - seemed a bit out of place next to the camouflage-clad soldiers carrying out their duties one day this week. The no-nonsense, military look of the Medford National Guard Armory has given way to a faintly dreamy, vintage scene bursting with color and mahogany as the Historic Annapolis Antiques Show opens in the main hall today. On Wednesday, about 30 antiques exhibitors from the East Coast and Midwest unpacked and transformed the space as they set up period pieces and prints in their stalls.

Along with the hammock, there may be no better icon of idyllic summer relaxation than the chaise. The outdoor recliner goes where its indoor cousin doesn't -- all the way down, fashioning a bed designed for sun, shade and gentle breezes. This staple of casual living got its adjustability only when it moved outdoors. The history of the chaise longue as a piece of furniture originates in living areas inside the home. Some credit the Swiss architect Le Corbusier, along with Swiss architect Pierre Jeanneret and French designer Charlotte Perriand, with its invention in 1928.

If you were to walk into the room, you'd immediately be impressed by its spaciousness and light. Then you'd notice some of the splendid details. The architecture was inspired by turn-of-the century Arts-and-Crafts style, embellished with handsome millwork in a pickled finish, creamy white tiles punctuated by colorful accents set-in like jewels, and striking, textured, stained-glass windows in tones of amber, wintergreen, lapis and plum.There are plenty of objets d'art to please the eye: art on the walls, sculpture and pretty vases filled with fresh flowers.

The French have complained that English words are creeping into their language. They object to signs in France offering "hamburgers" or "french fries." But there is no shortage of French words that have made their way into the English language."Armoire," "commode" and "chaise longue" are just a few of the French words we now use.An armoire is a large piece of furniture much like a closet. It has doors, shelves and hanging space.A commode is a chest of drawers.A chaise longue is a chair with an added resting space for legs.
