What are your thought on bean bag chairs? We love them and we can think of at least a dozen reasons why. They’re comfortable (too comfortable sometimes), they look casual, they’re great for kids, they come in tons of different colors, shapes and sizes and they’re just so cute and versatile. You can put them in living rooms, offices, playrooms or bedrooms and they fit the room wonderfully in each case. Bean bags are also usually easy to clean and very affordable. Of course, they’re not for everyone but we still think you should give them a chance.
Bean bag chairs also have lots of modern flair. Their casual, laid-back look is basically the opposite of a formal armchair.
As mentioned before, bean bag chairs are great for kids. They don’t have any sharp edges or tough frames and they’re also lightweight and easy to move around.
Bean bag chairs come in pretty much any color imaginable and that’s great because it means you can match them to your interior decor and use them as sources of accent color.
There are actually quite a few different types of bean bag chairs. This soft and fluffy one is one of the most adorable ones of all. It’s cute but also stylish and we can easily picture it in a variety of different setups.
These pear-shaped bean bag chairs are another popular option. They offer more support and they have this sort of built=in backrest and they also look a bit more formal than some other types.
Bean bag chairs are also excellent additions to playrooms and game rooms. Use them to create casual sitting areas and rearrange them as needed every time.
