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.
Beanbag chairs create a relaxed environment because of the way you sit in them. They‘re comfy and usually soft, and are not the kind of furniture that makes you sit upright at attention. Thus, these chairs are usually not used for the workplace, but for at home and in other informal settings. Contrary to their name, most chairs are not in fact filled with dried beans, but with materials such as styrofoam, PVC or polystyrene beads made from recycled soda bottles and other plastics. Since the filling can be made from re-used materials, beanbag chairs can be an environmentally friendly choice in furniture. If you ever get a hole in your beanbag chair or the beads get crushed from heavy use, most retailers sell replacement filler that you can use to refill your chair.
The beanbag‘s level of popularity wasn‘t done any favours when a number of kids were hurt and even choked to death following crawling into the beanbag and breathing in the beans in the bag. In 1995, the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) in America recalled some 12,000,000 beanbags and demanded all chairs sold in the marketplace after that date to have childproof zip fasteners. A beanbag rebirth started in the latter part of 1990‘s thanks to manufacturers who started employing improved manufacturing techniques such as double stitching and better material along with aesthetic improvements which assisted in making beanbags more durable and appealing.
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.
