Bean bag chairs still remain one of the worlds many mysteries. How did they come about, who or what inspired the shape, are they safe, and where can I get one? To answer these questions and more we need to look into the 1960's when this design was first uncovered. Created by an Italian design and first called a "Sacco", the bean bag chairs became greatly popular and then mass-produced. Today this design is still remains basically the same with exception to the fabric, filling, the original headrest and additional safety features. Bean bag chairs are the only furniture other than plastic patio chairs that can be easily relocated. This makes them ideal for flats, the poolside and any other outdoor area. (Check the waterproof qualities on the tag.) Also ideal for use on new carpet or floor lining as these clever designs won't leave a dent in your floor. Bean bag chairs can be found in every color of the rainbow with so many designs and colors to choose from including pet beanbag beds, leather, denim, fur and suede fabrics. There is a design and color to suit any home with the exception being a too classic home may not necessarily suit a bean bag, try the den or playroom instead. There are also bean bags fabrics that are waterproof and can repel liquids that may them ideal for pets or little children. One of the fun things about having a bean bag chairs is deciding where to put it.
It took some time for the modern bean filled chair, as we know it, to come into existence. The first mass-produced Bean Bag chairs were created by three Italian designers, Gatti, Paolini, and Teodora, while working for the Zanotta Company in 1969. Called "Sacco" chairs, they were pear-shaped, and filled with Styrofoam leftover pieces. This was the first chair to actually yield to the individual's body movements. The first attempt at mass-production failed, but soon after, the "Sacco" was launched, and gained popularity worldwide. The Bean Bag chair became an icon of "Pop" culture. We are currently enjoying a huge revival of mid-century design, and the iconic bb chair is back in full force. It's an ingenious invention, and has taken its permanent place in Classic Design.
