The History of Bean Bag Chairs
Remember when you were a child and played a game called Hacky sack, a game played with a small bag filled with either sand or small pebbles. This is also known as a bean bag. Bean bags started out as toys and games for entertainment but grew to include furniture and they are very popular among students in college.
The first bean bag chair was invented in the 1960s by Cesare Paolini, Piero Gatti, and Franco Teodoro. It was called the Sacco. The three Italian men were commissioned to produce a chair that was not only comfortable but attractive and unique. The Sacco was designed to be a shapeless chair. When full, the leather chair resembled a pear. Full on the bottom and emptier towards the top. It became a popular part of Italian modernism. Bean bag chairs are just like any other type of furniture. They are stylish and comfortable. There are chairs made for kids and adults in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. From the classic Italian leather to soft, stretchy polyester, these chairs go well in any setting. Due to the fact that these chairs are filled with polystyrene and have a zipper, small children should be watched closely around them. Curious children have climbed inside of bean bag chairs and nearly suffocated on the stuffing so keep an eye on small kids around bean bag chairs. A helpful tip for parents is to sew a stitch or two below the zipper so they can’t be opened by the child, but the adult can cut the string later if the bag needs to be refilled
Their versatility extends to many uses such as lounge chairs, sofas, and pet beds. They can also be used indoors or outdoors. Their outer shell should be made of leather or be a very durable material for use outside. Make sure to keep them out of direct sunlight to avoid stretching and fading of the outer material.
Types of Bean Bag Chairs:
Bean bag chairs come in all shapes and sizes and some are better than others. Here are the basic types of bean bag chairs and how they are best used.
Round – this type is very common and is basically a ball filled with polystyrene beads. It is filled to where you can make a space in the middle or create a seat with your hands. When you sit down it molds around you to create a super comfy spot. This was the first style of bean bags ever to be used in a kid’s room.
Square Chairs – these have more of a defined shape and are often more for traditional sitting. Some have armrests and cushions for traditional seating in a living room or den.
Gaming Chairs – Many gamers enjoy playing while perched in a bean bag chair. These come in various types, but often include a structured seating area and built-in speakers to relay audio from the television directly to the person in the chair.
Because of their flexibility and the fact they mold around you to create stability, they make great gaming chairs. Some have speakers and include a defined seat area. They are made for serious gamers that can spend hours playing their favorite game. Since gaming is all about getting immersed in the game, you don’t want to keep stopping because your leg is getting stiff or your butt is going numb from sitting in a straight-backed chair.
