You may want to go with traditional bean bag fillers and use beans in your beanbag chair. Foam is probably the best and most cost efficient filling. All filling materials are different and all are extremely comfortable. Some fillings are softer, some more durable and some provide more movement. Choose a filling that will create a nice even pressure throughout your whole body. Beanbag chairs come in lots of different colors, fabrics and sizes, the first thing you should consider is what you want from the beanbags. Dry fabrics such PVC or a Vinyl are very durable. Cleaning them is easy as they can be wiped with a damp cloth or use soap or detergent. There are removable, washable covers that are available in many of the fabrics.
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.
It is generally considered that the bean bag was in fact created by Roger Dean, a 20 year old employee at a London small business - Hille Furniture - a business that was formed by a Russian emigrant in the east end of London around 1906. Roger Dean who worked along with Hille, is known as by some being the daddy of the bean bag. While his design and style for the Sea Urchin easy chair makes it possible for it to mould to the form of the body being beared, the development was of polyurethane foam sections and so quite different to the much more fluid design of the polystyrene beads inside a more contemporary bean bag. It was the Sea Urchin design which introduced him to Hille, and led to the commission to help design the interior of the newly-expanded Ronnie Scott‘s Jazz Music Club, in London.
Secondly get your first bag of beans and snip a small opening in the corner of the bag. This way you have a small opening in the corner which you can control as those beans like to escape quickly. Then you can tip the beans into the bigger bag. To make the beans go in more quickly you can close the zip of the inner bag so that it is closer around the beans (an less fall out) and then make the opening in the bag of beans bigger so they can flow out more quickly. While you are putting the first bag or two in you can do it very quickly as there is lots of room in the bag and your friend can hold it up so no beans spill. You will find as the bag fills up you have to be more careful as the beans can go everywhere, keep the opening small so you can control the flow. Once all in zip it up, pop on the cover and voila!
