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.
Are you a busy professional - an investment banker or a software developer, a lawyer maybe, or a doctor, working long hours? Are you one of those workaholics who feel that they are more at home in their offices than at home? Have you ever wondered what happens to your wife/husband or you boy/girl friend while you burn the midnight oil? When was the last time you went to the movies, took a cozy seat beside your loved one and had a lovely time? In today‘s success driven busy world, though the busy professionals wish to have some time for themselves they are often found to be lacking time, or just too tired after a day of work. This is where Lovesac beanbags come in.
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.
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.
