Bean Bag Chairs

For an upgraded solution to casual yet stylish seating, bean bag chairs may be just the thing you’re looking for. As comfortable and multifunctional options, bean bags make the perfect addition to any space, including bedrooms, family rooms and playrooms. Whether you go for the more structured bean bag lounger or the traditional round style, you and your kids will no doubt enjoy comfortably lounging, reading or playing on them.

What are the different types of bean bag filling available?

  • Beads: The most common filler for bean bags is beads. These tiny, round lightweight pieces are typically made from polystyrene and move around freely to give that squishy yet firm feel that is synonymous with bean bag chairs.

  • Foam: Shredded foam makes an excellent filler for bean bags as it’s naturally soft and fluffy. It acts much like foam chair or sofa cushions, bouncing back to its original shape when not in use. While foam doesn’t “roll” quite the way bead fillers do, it’s preferred by some, especially when in the form of memory foam.

  • Natural Fillers: The original bean bags were filled with naturally occurring materials, such as dried beans, corn or rice. Recently these fillers have made a comeback, as buyers have begun looking for more natural and sustainable options, and can be just as comfortable as the synthetic fillers if designed properly.

What features should I look for in a bean bag chair?

There are a few features that make the best bean bags stand out from the rest. Look for bean bag furniture with removable covers, preferably with a zippered closure. This will make it super easy to remove the bean bag cover to clean up any spills and stains. For the ultimate ease, make sure the cover is machine washable so you can toss it in the wash and keep it looking its best for years to come.

That being said, find a bean bag that has a sturdy outer layer suited to your specific lifestyle, whether that be messy kids and pets or high-style design that needs to live up to the rest of your decor. If you have little ones running around it’s wise to find bean bag chairs for kids; they typically have childproof closures so they can’t accidentally open the cover and access the filling. Even if you’re just in the market for bean bag chairs for adults, make sure the cover is both sturdy and comfortable; it probably won’t get as much wear and tear as a one intended for kids, but it will need to stand up to your ever changing design standards. If you plan to use your bean bag chair outdoors, look for designs that are meant specifically for that purpose, otherwise you may end up with a soggy bag of beans.
