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.
It is normal for all beanbag chairs to need refilling after any long period of use. A few kinds of these chairs are not filled with individual bean-like pellets, but with fluffy polyurethane material not unlike regular pillow filling. This style of chair should not need to be refilled ever, but may require periodic fluffing up. These chairs come in a huge variety of materials and styles. Their defining characteristic is their lumpy bag-like shape and the ability to have them conform to the shape of your body when you sit in them. Common styles for the outside of beanbag chairs include vinyl, leather, denim, and nylon. They come in just about any color, and some are even pre-formed into fun shaped kids bean bag or for a particular use, such as a foot stool to accompany your chair.
