Bean bags have been around for decades. But bean bag sofas are a different proposition. Moving far beyond the slouchy, shapeless sacks that made up the originals, bean bag sofas can take a variety of forms. From the traditionally styled to the contemporary take. So, what do you need to know about bean bag sofas?
Four Reasons to Choose a Bean Bag Sofa
You can choose a style that suits you
While most of us think of sofas as taking the approximate form of a 3D rectangle, with bean bag sofas you don’t need to stick to the norm. With the Mega Mammoth bean bag sofa, for example, you get a seat that is plenty big enough for two. Or can act as the ultimate chill out space for one, for those moments when you want to give your spine a break.
You’ll never find a sofa that’s easier to move
Whether you’re reorganising, decorating, making space for a party, or moving house, sofas are heavy and hard work to move. Not so bean bag sofas. The Albert bean bag sofa might be a three seater, but you could move it around a room singlehandedly. You could slide it along the floor without leaving any marks. It would only need two of you to carry it upstairs because of its sofa shape. It’s big, it’s beautiful, it’s incredibly cosy. But it’s also an absolute doddle to move.
Bean bag sofas can be better for your back
You know how traditional sofas can be hard to get comfortable in? How you usually end up needing a cushion to support the small of your back? Or you curl your legs up to find a bit more stability? That’s because most sofas are rigid. When you choose a Huge bean bag sofa, it moulds itself around your body. Providing your back and the rest of your body with the support it needs to avoid strains and discomfort. Even when there’s two of you on one seat.
You can choose a range of fabrics
Just like regular sofas, bean bag sofas come in a range of fabrics. So whether you want a cosy knitted or faux-fur look, or something that has more of a formal, traditional aesthetic while still delivering the casual comfort of a bean bag, like the Albert in distressed leather, there is something for every style.
Bean bag sofas won’t be for everyone. They’re not ideal for families with very small children, and those with mobility issues may not find them the easiest seat to get out of. But if you’re looking for a sofa solution that’s easy to move, superbly comfortable, and looks a little different from the norm, then a bean bag sofa could be the right choice for you.
