In Australia the main retailers are Kmart, Big W, Spotlight and Target. You can also buy beans at many places online. The bags vary in size, the most popular is the 100L bag. Beans in Australia are generally measured in litres but they can also be measured in kilograms. It can get a bit confusing. So for my big two seater beanbag I was instructed to use 450 litres to fill it. I went off to Big W to buy the beans, they come in a 100 litre bag so I bought 5 of them. It is always handy to have some extra beans so that if you bag gets a little flat you can top it up every now and then. The next part is the hard part. Seriously who would have know how tricky it is to fill a beanbag. My first suggestion is to do this with someone else, a friend, sibling, parent or child (not too little as the beans are a choking hazard.) So first up get the inner bag and open the zip around 30cm wide and get your friend to hold the bag up with the opening towards you.
It is rumoured that the Socco was essentially an accidental development that originated in a Styrofoam production line where they decided to put all the excess pieces from the manufacturing line into a carrier. In either case the Sacco grew to become the first modern beanbag. In the 70s the Sacco started to be extremely well-liked and brought the couple of creators overnight acclaim. The chair is much like a present day day beanbag. Even so, unlike the standard bean bag the Sacco was pear shaped and was fabricated from high-quality leather, and had a head rest part formed by moving pellets. It oozed style, class, luxury as a consequence ended up being a much sought after high-end item.
Years ago, the fillers of beanbags are made of real dried beans. However, insects are attracted to it and creep in it making the chair unsuitable to be occupied. Later on, beans are changed into PVC pellets, expanded polypropylene, and polystyrene. These fillers made the furniture lightweight which makes it easier to move around. This is an advantage when you want to rearrange the furniture in your room, you can just drag it to any space without exerting too much effort.
The reclining chair was made up of a dozen pieces of polyurethane foam and was protected by different types of fur. Despite the fact that the bag was circular it would would mould by itself to the curves associated with the sitter, who could then nore easily obtain a comfortable seating position of different angles. Some debate that the Sea Urchin is very little more than an altered futon mattress, not really that it makes much difference because the Sea Urchin is typically credited as being the precursor to the ‘Sacco‘ which is what most people realize these days as the modern beanbag.
