A bean bag chair is a large frameless chair that resembles a bean bag. It is made of a large fabric bag filled with polystyrene beads or tiny Styrofoam balls and it molds readily to the contours of the user's body. The first bean bag chairs came about in the 1970's. Rumor has it that the first version of this chair was discovered by accident. When a Styrofoam factory placed their leftover pieces from the production line in a large bag, the manufacturers thought of using it to create a new piece of furniture and called it the Sacco. Throughout the 1970's, the chairs became available in department stores. They were made of durable leather and were filled with thick Styrofoam pellets. In the 1990's, manufacturers of bean bag chairs started making them in different forms, shapes, and sizes such as recliners and sofas. They also became more child-friendly with childproof durable zippers. Today, most of these chairs are typically made with washable covers and are filled with shredded foam to make it more durable.
There are different types of bean bags in the market and they are made of a variety of fabrics. It can be covered in vinyl, leather, fur, denim, cotton cloth, or microfiber. Vinyl is commonly used and chosen because it is easy to clean, but its surface can be sticky. Sometimes, the fabric is not very important. What's more important is the quality of the fabric. High quality fabric should be durable and friction-resistant. Otherwise, you would be replacing the cover too often. Moreover, it should have liners so that you can remove the covers without directly exposing the filling material. Covers are removed for washing or replacement. The size and shape of a bean bag chair should be considered. You don't want large chairs in a small room. Many just buy whatever chairs they see and realize what they bought doesn't seem to go with their living room design. Usually, people just choose a shape or size based solely on preference, not taking into consideration if a particular chair would look right in their room. Did you know that the shape of a chair affects comfort? For instance, pear-shaped ones are bigger and provide more back support. Then there is the pancake shaped chair, which is flatter and is more like a recliner than a chair. There are smaller ones that are specifically designed for kids.
