For some crazy reason, many seem to believe that beanbags have gone out of style, but ultimately, they are one of the ultimate bedroom, living room, or gaming room accessories. They are perfect for moving around because of their lightweight.
With newer beanbags containing lovely fabrics and more ergonomic designs, it is no wonder that the new generation of beanbag has taken off so quickly. If you are tired of typical seating and fancy something a little more out of the box, then one of the eight beanbags below is definitely for you. Just remember a few things before you buy one:
- Different beanbags will cater to specific needs, so if you are in the market for an ergonomic beanbag, you may want to be sure that the bag you choose caters for that.
- The filling material may be different to what you had expected, so be sure to research what materials are used in the bag to ensure comfort and satisfaction.
- Some of the bags on the list are quite large. Knowing the size of the bag in conjunction with the space that you will be using is crucial.
- Some beanbags may be sold without filling at all! You can usually tell by the price. If a bag is $7, you can probably guess that it is just for the cover itself. Whereas if you are paying $80-90, you can safely assume that you are getting the filling too.
1. Chilli Sack Bean Bag Chair
If you are looking for a beanbag that offers size and comfort and will not break the bank, then the Chilli Sack is a great option. The bag is filled with shredded memory foam instead of beans or pellets, which allows for more comfort and a more ergonomic design. It is available in a range of sizes and over 20 colours and looks to accommodate those looking to buy for any room.
The Chilli Sack can range from 2ft to 8ft in size, and the standard 5-foot bag can fit two people. Another feature to note is the comfortable microsuede fibre that will make sitting down for long periods easy and comfortable.
Perhaps one of the best features is that the beanbag comes compressed when it is shipped, and then once opened, it expands and rises to full form after a few hours. This is another reason why the memory foam is such a welcome addition because you would not be able to compress the bag as well with pellets or other materials.
2. Aspyn Faux Fur Shag Beanbag Chair
If you are looking for a beanbag that has some of the most comfortable material on the market, then look no further than the faux fur beanbag made by Aspyn. It is a 5-foot bag and can seat up to two people. Making it ideal for relaxing. It is filled with comforting beads which are ergonomically friendly, so you can lay in it for as long as you wish. Despite its nearly $200 price tag, the bag is ideal for teenagers because it looks good and comfortable. It can be a little difficult to clean as well because the fur may lose its softness, but overall, the Aspyn faux fur beanbag is a real treat and is worth buying.
3. Cozy Sack
The Cozy Sack is one of the most versatile beanbags on this entire list. There are so many varieties of the Cozy Sack available, with more than 15 different colors and 5 sizes ranging from 3 to 8 feet; you can purchase a bag that caters to you, your crew, and your living space. Filled with CertiPUR-US certified foam, the bag is designed with comfort in mind.
Similarly, Cozy Sack has designed the sack so that there are no clumps or overactive spots on the bag to ensure that when you are sitting on the bag, there is a perfect balance of foam. Unlike some other bags on the list, it is easy to clean, and its micro-suede fabric lining can be easily removed and cleaned as needed. Prices can differ depending on the size required ranging from $120 to $270, but the comfort and quality that you get make it worth it.
4. Ultimate Sack
The name says it all. This really is the ultimate beanbag. It is one of the heavier sets of the lot, but that is because there is an added part. The footrest is what makes this beanbag stand out. That’s right, with this set, you not only get the ultimate beanbag, but you also get the ultimate footstool too.
The bag itself is made from durable and versatile double-stitched material that expands depending on the occupant’s weight, meaning that the bag is perfect for any user. As with many of the other bags on the list, the Ultimate Sack and its footstool are available in various colors and are interchangeable and machine washable. Coming in at $280, it is one of the more expensive options on the list, but overall, there is real value for money here.
5. Inflatable Lounger Air Sofa
The perfect affordable beanbag option, the Air Sofa by Wekapo is great for anyone looking to buy a beanbag on a budget. It is not filled with beans and is inflatable, it is easy to inflate, and with its comfortable pillow shaped headrest, the bag can act as a bed too. It is ideal for outdoor use too, with a drink holder and a netted pocket that can store personal belongings. Not only that, but it can be used as a floatie in a swimming pool too! What’s not to love?
6. Big Joe Milano Beanbag Chair
Yet another bargain buy, the Big Joe beanbag chair looks to be more than a beanbag that you can sit on, it looks to offer some practical comfort and design too. Available in most retail stores for about $45-55, the Big Joe is made of durable polyester and is filled with your usual polystyrene “Megahh” beads, which have a larger life expectancy than regular beads.
One of the standout features of this beanbag, aside from its price, is its design. The backrest is something that very few beanbags have and with double stitching across the chair and a large 100kg+ weight capacity, there is a lot to like about the Big Joe. It is also one of the smaller bags on the list, so it is great for those with limited space.
7. Jaxx Cocoon 6′ Beanbag
The perfect beanbag if you have a wealth of space available, the 6-foot Jaxx Cocoon beanbag is made with super-soft fabric and filled with ergonomically friendly microfibers that can comfortably seat two people. The outer cover comes in a range of colors, and each of them are easily machine washable.
Similarly to the Chilli beanbag, the polyurethane filling expands once opened, and after a couple of hours, the bag goes from compressed to fully functional. There is a 4-foot variation of the beanbag available and is a good option for those that may not want to pay as much or deal with a heavier beanbag. In any case, Jaxx has done a great job of making their Cocoon beanbag a perfect option for anyone looking for style and comfort. Just be prepared to pay the guts of $300 for it.
8. Intex Inflatable Lounge Chair and Ottoman
If you are looking for a bag that will give you minimum hassle and maximum value, then the Intex inflatable lounge chair and ottoman set is the ideal purchase. With a 250-pound weight limit and a quick and easy setup required, there is no better option for those looking to choose a lighter, more portable, and more versatile option. It is unlikely that one would use this in their living room, but it is ideal for holidays or using outside. There is a drink holder in the chair’s right arm, and the ottoman is compact and easy to inflate too. Coming in at a fantastic $45, this beanbag is one of the more reasonably priced on the list.
