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 chairs create a relaxed environment because of the way you sit in them. They‘re comfy and usually soft, and are not the kind of furniture that makes you sit upright at attention. Thus, these chairs are usually not used for the workplace, but for at home and in other informal settings. Contrary to their name, most chairs are not in fact filled with dried beans, but with materials such as styrofoam, PVC or polystyrene beads made from recycled soda bottles and other plastics. Since the filling can be made from re-used materials, beanbag chairs can be an environmentally friendly choice in furniture. If you ever get a hole in your beanbag chair or the beads get crushed from heavy use, most retailers sell replacement filler that you can use to refill your chair.
