Bean Bags - Ultimate Comfort

Aug 17, 2007
Kids and teenagers are the number one fans of bean bag chairs. Also, young singles such as college students and even young married couples are now getting highly excited over these room furnishings. Aside from the bright colors these pieces of furniture sport, their flop-ability is also very enticing. So light and soft, throwing one's body into these bean bags is very fun. Portability is also one factor that makes these bean bags win the approval of anyone who needs to be able to sit, work, or play anywhere. Play rooms and dorms can easily benefit from these bean bags.

1. Bean Bag Material

Back then, traditional bean bags or those that are full of polysterene beads were the trend. Polystyrene is that material that is the same as your styrofoams cups or those that protect electronic appliances in shipping. Technology gave birth to more comfy modern foam bean bags. These modern bean bag chairs come with polyurethane foam filling instead of the polystyrene that traditional bean bags are made of. Polyurethane foam is found in mattresses and foam pillows.
