They're just great for when you need a few extra seats too.
As a youngster, I used to spend literally hours in my bean bag chair watching TV, playing games or just hanging around. You can even buy special kiddie bean bags these days that look like stuffed animals, footballs and baseballs, in fact just about anything. There are even bean bags chairs made with mesh that can be used outdoors.
Not all Bean Bag Chairs are the same! Contrary to popular belief, not all bean bags have the same filling. Many are made from different fabrics too and so there are both good and poor quality chairs to be had. One thing is certain and that is that bean bag chairs come in a whole variety of different colors, sizes and fabrics, but perhaps the first thing to do before purchasing one is to ask yourself a couple of questions such as who is going to use it and what room will it be located in?
If you are all grown up and just want bean bag chairs as additional seating for when friends or family come to visit, then you wouldn't necessarily need to go for the super strong, extra resilient, easy maintenance bean bag chairs which would be more suited, and necessary, for children and teenagers.
A lot of us tend to think of a bean bag chair as a huge lump of fixed sized stuffed fabric, but the good news is that today there are a number of sizes available ranging from small, medium, to large, as well as huge double seaters that seem to becoming the 'in-thing' for teenagers bedrooms.
Bean bags are available in many colours and textures too, which is ideal if you want them on permanent display as you can choose those that blend in with your decor. Alternatively you can go the other way by contrasting designs that can add a splash of colour to your living room, rumpus room, or bedroom.
So why are these big floppy bean bag chairs such comfortable furniture items? After all, it doesn't sound too relaxing when you think you're sitting or laying on a bag of beans. Well, it's all to do with their polymorphic properties as they tend to take the natural shape of the back and support it in just the right areas.
Despite the casual, playful design of a bean bag chair, they are actually beneficial to supporting the posture if sat on correctly. But hey, who wants to sit upright on a bean bag chair. Half the fun is slouching around on them in anyway you wish, right? The bean bag chair is now and will always be, great fun seating for families!
