Bean bags are pear shaped leather or vinyl bags filled with soft PVC pellets. Bean bags easily mould themselves to match the sitter‘s curves, providing an ergonomic seating arrangement. If you are that busy professional who suffers from a host of problems including joint pains, headaches and stress related issues, bean bags can help you. They are good for your posture, and after that hard day of work, makes for a comfortable and cozy place. They provide a stylish, comfortable and easily movable seating arrangement. Already popular among the younger generation, the bean bag is an affordable solution to all your sitting solutions. . The contemporary design of bean bags gives them bold colors. For those who prefer traditional accents, the leather variants look very elegant.
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.
Beanbag chairs are the ultimate furniture for creating a relaxed, informal environment at home or elsewhere. They‘re ideal for rooms with children, both in bedrooms or playrooms, and for teenagers as well. Wherever you put them, beanbags are the perfect lounging chair. Beanbag chairs first became popular in the 1960s and 1970s in Europe, Canada and the United States as a symbol of the counter-culture. They resumed their popularity in the 1990s for those seeking informal but extremely comfortable furniture, and continue to be especially popular among young people and in spaces not associated with work or school activities.
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.
