Recently I bought a new beanbag, it is absolutely divine and I love it. It is a huge beanbag, it fits 2 people comfortably and it is a beige beanbag. So I got my lovely new beanbag home and took it out of the packaging and there is the outer beige cover and then an inner liner, a white zip up bag that you put the beans it. How hard can this be I thought! So first up you need to find out how many beans you need to fill your bag. Most good beanbag companies will give you a guide as to how many beans you need. You can buy beans in many different places and in different size bags.
Beanbag chairs are the ultimate furniture for creating a relaxed, informal environment at home or elsewhere. They‘re ideal for rooms with children, both in bedrooms or playrooms, and for teenagers as well. Wherever you put them, beanbags are the perfect lounging chair. Beanbag chairs first became popular in the 1960s and 1970s in Europe, Canada and the United States as a symbol of the counter-culture. They resumed their popularity in the 1990s for those seeking informal but extremely comfortable furniture, and continue to be especially popular among young people and in spaces not associated with work or school activities.
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.
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.
