Bean Bag Chairs Are Oh So Cozy, Comfy, And Snuggly
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Can any piece of furniture be any more inviting? Now, don’t you just want to fall into that round, soft looking object, curl up and read a good book? You have lots of company.

Bean bag chairs deliver the goods. For a relatively inexpensive piece of furniture, you are receiving so much value. Here are some of the unique advantages of living with these chairs:

1. Fashion and Function: Innovative design, originally created to be stylish mobile furniture, the bean bag chair is light weight and can be easily moved from room to room, and even outdoors. Although they are contemporary in look, they compliment other furnishings in a room. Their minimalist look provides relief from other fussier looking furniture.

2. The Ergonomic Factor: Unlike conventional furniture, this chair has the capacity to adapt to many body shapes and sizes. You sit in one and you are instantly relaxed and enveloped in a soft cloud of contained polystyrene beads and shredded foam that conforms to your curves and angles. There are no hard surfaces that can cause stress on your back, arms, neck, and shoulders. Doctors suggest firmer bean bag chairs to patients who have back problems. So you see, these chairs are comfortable and ergonomically sound. Of course, both things go hand and hand.

3. Versatility: Bean bag chairs provide excellent casual seating and can be used in many settings. What could be better when watching a movie, than to curl up in a soft chair that is so comfortable? You can sit for hours. Use bb chairs in recreation rooms, screening rooms, bedrooms, living rooms, children’s playrooms, dorm rooms, even conference rooms and offices. Are you aware that bean bag chairs have been used successfully by many top corporations in conference rooms and employee meeting places? Idea being, when people are relaxed, ideas and conversation flow. Sit in a bb chair to brainstorm that next big project.

4. Prudent Investment: Bean bag chairs are the perfect alternative to more conventional furniture when budgets are an issue. These chairs are available in many sizes and styles, and they are much less expensive to purchase than conventional furniture. For sure, they are great fun, and provide flexible, ample seating in any room.

5. Color, Pattern, Fabrication: Bean bag chairs are available in a broad range of colors, patterns, and styles. Fabrication depends quite a bit on where the bb chair is used. Vinyl and nylon are suitable for outdoor use, whereas cotton, leather, sueded fabrics, and faux furs are better suited to interior use. Faux fur makes good sense in colder climes because it adds warmth. Printed fabrics, such as the big bold patterns from Marimekko for Fatboy, are decorative and fun and make a strong fashion statement, even a retro fashion statement. Denim is popular mostly because it is a hardwearing fabric. Nylon and vinyl repel liquid, which is why they are recommended for outdoor use. We suggest that you purchase a bean bag chair that has a lining that contains all the filling material. Why? Because you can remove the cover to wash it without disturbing the beads. Who wants to deal with loose beads, anyway?

6. Meditation: All of you yoga devotees know that in order to meditate properly, you need to be comfortable. Physical pain is a distraction. You can get deep under sitting in a bb chair.

7. Easy Maintenance: BB chairs are very easy to keep clean. Just remove the cover and wash with mild soap on a gentle cycle in your washing machine. Fabrics such as nylon, vinyl, and sueded cloth can be spot cleaned with a clean soft cloth and mild soap and water.

Our favorite bean bag chairs are made by Fatboy. They are well made and so “with it” looking. I just love the chunky label because it’s humorous and makes me laugh. There are many styles available, including bb chairs for your pets. I am personally fond of the original chair from Fatboy, and also like the Buggle-up Lounge.

For comfort, economy, and downright fun, bean bag chairs are worthy of your consideration.

They remind me of my childhood and young adulthood too. Great for kids. I had one in college. Sometimes they are more comfortable than a sofa. They're retro Sherry, and have made a big comeback. Thanks for your comment.
