Bean bag chairs compliment any modern, contemporary décor, while also creating a comfy lounge space and providing support for one’s back and full body frame. They are a cool way to create additional seating whenever and wherever you need it.

Although bean bag chairs are usually regarded as living room furniture, the truth is they are suitable for the whole family, including children. Most bean bags look casual, but some, like the boat style chair, have such a fun design that they will certainly enhance any décor.


Bean bag chairs come in a great variety of covers, including microfiber, microsuede, faux suede, faux fur, leather, cotton twill, organic cotton, and various prints. Some of these covers can be removed to have them easily machine-washed or dry cleaned, as well. On the other hand, a long-lasting bean bag will usually be double-stitched to make it stronger, but this means that the cover is not removable. In these cases, you will have to clean the chair on the spot if it gets dirty.

No matter where you intend to place your new bean bag, you will certainly find the right color, as there are plenty of options: white, black, grey, green, blue, orange, sandy, espresso, pink, red, and purple; plain, with polka dots or with many other patterns – find the complete selection on

Types of filling

Polystyrene beads are the traditional filling of most bean bag chairs; these are small round pellets, about 0.125-inches in size, and make for a very smooth filler.

Some chairs will also use memory foam, or a mix of memory foam and shredded foam. If you get a memory foam bean bag, refrain from using it a couple of days up to one week after delivery to allow it to make a full recovery. The foam will need this time to regain its form after being packed so tightly during shipping.


There is a wide array of shapes and sizes to choose from, whether you prefer round or teardrop bean bag chairs, boat style or pillow style ones, etc. Typical sizes range from 3-foot to 8-foot items. Note that some bean bags require assembly, which may not be immediately obvious.

The most comfortable bean bags are those that adapt to each individual’s body shape and provide complete support. What’s even better is that this type of chair regains its original form when there is no one sitting or lying on it.
