Looking for wicker chaise longue - do they exist?!

I’m looking for a wicker chaise longue to put in a bay window, and despite loads of online searching, can’t find what I’m looking for. I’m envisaging natural-coloured wicker/rattan, not the black plasticky type. And I want something that’s permanently curved up at one end, not the kind of lounger that you can prop up or flatten out. And I need it to be fairly narrow - about 30cm wide. Does anyone know whether such a thing exists, and if so, where I can find it?!

(Btw, it needs to be no more than 106cm long.)

I don't think you'll find any chaise longue that's only 30cm wide, that's even less than the depth of a typical dining chair so far too narrow for a chaise longue

I haven't seen any wicker examples of any dimensions I'm afraid

I’m imagining something like this but longer and without the wings (or whatever those bits are called!).

I currently have a bench in my window that’s 29cm wide - or maybe I should say deep - the seat 29cm one way and 103cm the other way. I’m hoping to find a chaise longue in similar dimensions.

I can understand a bench having those dimensions, but you won't find a chaise so narrow. I think you might have to re-think, or go custom made if you have your heart set on that.

It could be a bit wider if needed, e.g. the width of a normal chair. I don’t want something really wide, like an armchair, though!

Not what you’ve asked for but could something like this work?

Bamboo lounge chair any good?

Thank you so much for the suggestions! The Homebase sofa wouldn’t really work as my bay window comes down quite low - just above the height of a chair seat - so a sofa with a back would look odd in front of it. I’m thinking that as a chaise longue has a back that’s small and sideways on, that would work better!

I love the bamboo chair! Ideally I’d like to find something to stretch my legs out on, and I think a long seat would fit the space really well, but if I don’t find something like that, that chair is definitely worth considering!

You could commission a basket maker to make one? (Find them on Etsy or Instagram)
