Noted Italian designers developed the first bean bag chairs in the 1960's. Their creation was called the 'Sacco', and was at the time described as an ɺnatomical armchair'. It became the first mass produced bean bag furniture. Just like its counterpart these days, the Sacco was filled with polystyrene beads that make them lightweight and easy to mold to the shape of the body. While enhancements to its size and shape have occurred over time, in general the bean bag chair form remains true to the design of the Sacco from the 1960's. The original concept behind the bean bag chair was to create stylish mobile furniture, which is unlike conventional bulky furniture. Thus the bean bag chair is easily moved from room to room as well as from indoors to outdoors. The design of it is highly praised, as it adapts to many different body shapes. The original Sacco featured a headrest that got its shape from beans being pushed up into this area. In the more modern bean bags, the head area is not a separate component, rather now a part of the bean bag chair which is accentuated.
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.
