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.
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.
