Throughout the 70s the Sacco was widely advertised but not as the Sacco. Marketers needed a name for an imitation of the Sacco so they developed a more appropriate name - the beanbag. The main difference between the Sacco and the ‘beanbag‘ was that the beanbag used less expensive materials to help make it cheaper for the common man. The beanbag would go on to become a symbol of the 70‘s along with the disco ball, lava lamps, Space invaders, Pong and even Abba. Throughout the 1980‘s the beanbag suddenly lost most of its trendy reputation and for that reason was consigned to the world of "kiddie furniture". The beanbag became the kid‘s preference of a seat for watching television and just ‘chilling out‘.
You may want to go with traditional bean bag fillers and use beans in your beanbag chair. Foam is probably the best and most cost efficient filling. All filling materials are different and all are extremely comfortable. Some fillings are softer, some more durable and some provide more movement. Choose a filling that will create a nice even pressure throughout your whole body. Beanbag chairs come in lots of different colors, fabrics and sizes, the first thing you should consider is what you want from the beanbags. Dry fabrics such PVC or a Vinyl are very durable. Cleaning them is easy as they can be wiped with a damp cloth or use soap or detergent. There are removable, washable covers that are available in many of the fabrics.
Lovesac beanbags are those special beanbags which are oversized to accommodate you and your better half, together. How do you like your movie experience to be? Do you prefer to cuddle up with your partner in front of the TV with eatables and chilled beverages nearby? Well then, get a love sac, a cozy beanbag for the both of you. Its added benefits are that it is removable and washable. Moreover, love sacs have small PVC pellets in them which make a soft and cushiony sitting experience. These pellets get overtime, which may lessen your comfort, but you can easily refill your bean bag, with these pellets which are available across the market. These Sacs are easy to handle, easy to move, easy to take to the drive-in, and easy to clean up when finished.
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.
