How about a Bean Bag?

Aug 17, 2007
Bean bags are chairs that look like a bag, and not like your ordinary chair. These are extremely flexible and comfortable and adjust to the shape of the person who sits on it. Bean bags provide fun sitting and should be purchased after careful consideration. The important factors to be considered are the materials, sizes, prints, prices, and fillings of the bean bags. The fact is that different people find different things appealing in the bean bags. The ultimate factor is whether you like the comfort of bean bags or not.

Bean bags come in various sizes. There are small bean bags that cannot be used as actual chairs but make great children chairs with enough space for small children. Medium and large size bean bags make nice additions to dorm rooms or apartments when friends come over. There are also deluxe or the king sized chairs that can accommodate two or more persons.

The next thing to consider while buying bean bags is the type of the material used for the bag. The most commonly used material for bean bags is cotton with a micro fiber lining so that the filling of the bean bag is protected from water. Another material used in bean bags is vinyl, though considered by many as too sticky and hence uncomfortable. There are also bean bags made from leather, velvet, velour and silk.
It is advisable to ensure that the bean bag chair has an outer sleeve that is removable. These bags are normally supported with an inner liner that is water resistant. With a removable outer sleeve the bean bag can be easily cleaned and in case of necessity easily repaired.

Furthermore, bean bags are seen in various colors and with various prints. The different kinds of prints are leopard and zebra, ornate, shiny colors, flat colors and a lot more to keep up with the imagination. To make your bean chair look new and fresh you can zip a new custom-made chair cover over it.

Normally bean bags are filled with bits of Styrofoam, a rigid material to make their texture unique. But if the bean bag is made of cheaper material, Styrofoam leaks out because of its rigid nature. In order to ensure comfort and durability of the bean bag chairs, manufacturers have started using polyurethane instead of Styrofoam. Although these bags are costly when compared to Styrofoam bags, they offer more comfort and one can feel it as soon as one sits on the chair.
The cheapest of bean chairs cost around $100, the midrange ones cost between $130 and $200 based on their material and size. Polyurethane and designer bean bag chairs cost nearly $300.

When buying a bean chair remember to sit and try it first. In case your purchase it online, always ensure that there is enough provision to return the chair if found uncomfortable. Sitting on the bean bag should be very comfortable and suitable to you.
