Bean Bag Chairs

Webster Dictionary defines a bean bag chair as “a large bag that is filled with small round pieces of material and used as a soft chair.” If only it were that simple. Bean Bag Chairs have come a long way since the first known use of one in 1871. They come in all shapes and sizes; all colors and patterns. You can probably find one to suite anyone’s tastes and needs. They come in small enough sizes to satisfy a small child, large enough to serve as a bed, and anywhere in between. Their themes range from the color of the rainbow, to all sorts of patterns, and even your favorite teams. They are very durable, portable, comfortable (as they conform to your body) and versatile enough to play video games, read a book, watch the big game, or just relax. In this article, we will break them down into three separate sizes: small, large, and extra-large. In addition, we’ll explore some of the most favorite types. So, let’s get started!

Small Bean Bag Chairs

Small bean bag chairs are exactly what you think they would be: small, usually two or three feet. But for a child, they are the perfect size. If you’re an adult, you might think how the heck am I going to get up out of this. They are light and easy to move and store, and surprisingly durable. That’s because now-a-days, they are doubled stitched and doubled zippered for added protection and security. Plus, they are easy to care for; a damp cloth is all that you would need. As with just about anything these days, they come in all sorts of trendy and stylish fabrics, keeping pace with today’s trends and fashions.

Large Bean Bag Chairs

Finding one that is the right size for you if you’re an adult doesn’t have to be a daunting task. There is a large variety to choose from for most adults. Most bean bag chairs are very comfortable, as the foam filled innards change their shape and size to conform to the person’s weight and sitting position. They are very comfortable and easily replace uncomfortable chairs, and usually range from four to six feet. Large chairs are what you need to complete your game room, man cave, or even your bedroom. In addition, they are absolutely the thing to have for your dorm room.

Extra Large Bean Bag Chairs

Bean bag chairs have come a long way over the past couple of decades. Not only do they come in jumbo sizes (seven to eight feet), but now some are able to convert from a chair to a bed. A bed that can comfortably sleep two adults. How convenient is that? But, if you are not looking for a bed, these oversized chairs are still the perfect solution. Big and comfortable, they can easily accommodate two, maybe three adults.

Now that you’ve decided on the size you need, next comes the style or pattern to get. One of the more popular choices are ones that proudly displaying your favorite team. You can find a chair for just about every professional and college teams. How awesome would it be watching the big game, cheering on your favorite team sitting in a bean bag chair with their primary logo and team colors proudly on display? If you are interested in something more generic, themes are available such as sports, patterns, designs, and colors.

As you can see, these are not your ordinary bean bag chairs anymore. They have come a long way, making it nearly impossible not to find what you are looking for.
