Since beanbag chairs first came into being in the 1960’s, this innovative seating choice has become so popular that it is even seen in public establishments. This furniture was first developed by the Zanotta Company in 1969 when several individuals noticed that their employees enjoyed sitting on bags stuffed with Styrofoam pellets. Today’s chairs come in a variety of shapes, sizes and textures, making them perfect for every age group and every family.

Children, in particular, love these types of chairs. Many companies have designed these chairs in smaller sizes for even the youngest of children. Children’s options are often perfectly round and come with removable, washable covers. This way, parents do not need to worry about stains and germs. Children prefer a bean bag chair in bright colors, such as tie-dye, or with images of favorite cartoon characters, animals or princesses on them.

Of course, adults also have numerous options within this seating category. Even elderly individuals can enjoy bean bag chairs that are sturdy and have arms. Some chairs even come with matching footstools. Other bean bag chairs can unfold into comfortable beds that mold to the contours of one’s body. Some chairs are extra large and can seat two people. Although adults can enjoy some of the same simple prints and colors that children enjoy, further adult choices include velvet, faux fur, leather, denim and suede covers. Some of these covers may be removable for washing. Others may be permanently attached to the chair and may only be able to be spot cleaned.

There are several types of filling for a bean bag chair. The filling that is most often seen, particularly in a cheaper chair, is polystyrene beads. Polystyrene is a type of plastic similar to Styrofoam. The beads are small and make a very lightweight chair. Oftentimes, the beads are made from recycled sources. Another type of filler for these chairs is foam. Although this type is usually more expensive, it is typically more luxurious and comfortable than the beads are. In addition, the foam can be compressed when packing the chair for shipping or moving. Some chairs are made from a combination of foam and polystyrene beads. This type of chair has been popular for years and will certainly remain so throughout the future. With a variety of choices for chair size, style, color and filler, there is a chair that is perfect for anyone. In fact, the bean bag chair is a popular seating choice for adults, teenagers and children.
