It‘s not until 1969 that the beanbag as we understand it emerged into existence. Italian stylistes Gatti, Paolini, and Teodora were doing work for the Zanotta Company and were striving to develop the ideal type of easy chair to market to 1960‘s hipsters and hippies. The easy chair would have to be trendy, useful, and in-tune with the 60‘s life-style. With the brief understood they began designing this seat and what they ultimately delivered has been referred to as Sacco or the Socco as it became known overseas. It was the Sacco which was the first contemporary bean bag - a pear shaped leather-based bag filled with thermocole pellets that have been latterly substituted for shredded polyurethane foam beads or expanded polystyrene or PVC pellets.
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‘.
Beanbag furniture has been around sense the ‘60s. They quickly became popular and have remained so today. There are plenty of reasons that beanbags are the best if you want comfort and convenience. They are easy to move, more comfortable then anything on the market, affordable, and can fit in event he tightest living spaces. It‘s no surprise that the beanbag is the prime choice for many people looking for a new place to sit. Beanbags are typically filled with PVC "beans" which give them their name. With all the small beans in the bag they are incredibly lightweight for their size, and can be moved with very little effort. On top of that, you are not limited by shape. Sense they are not made of pre-cut padding, you are able to adjust them and flex them into any space you desire.
These beanbag chairs come in a large selection of fabrics including corduroy, cotton drill, denim, nylon, fur, vinyl, suede and Fil-tec fabric for outdoor beanbags. Bean bag chairs made in cotton drill, denim or nylon are machine washable, however you should really think about removable liners. Emptying the beanbags is not an easy task and is very time consuming. Beanbag chairs, because they are a filled and upholstered furniture, come under a special category for safety standards. It is important that you know the contents of the child‘s beanbag chair and whether it meets the US flammability standards especially if you have children who use the bean bag chairs, Polystyrene beads and polyurethane foam are among the most popular bean bag chair fillers.
