Bean Bags

Update on the Bean Bags

I said I would write later about my experience with the gigantic bean bags, so I wanted to provide an update. I’m still very happy with it and the foam as held up well for months now. It’s a little on the pricey side, but I think that the quality that you get for this bean bag is definitely worth it.

It holds up and is just as comfortable as when we got it.  I haven’t had to wash the cover yet, but I don’t think it will be a problem. The material is sturdy and has taken the kinds and me jumping on it with no issues at all.

The color gray is really nice and now I’m going to be buying that red one like I talked about before.

I’ve had great experience with this company and after several months of trying our their bean bags I can give my full recommendation and endorsement. They have a great bean bag and I’ve been telling everybody about them.

If you need something comfortable and are willing to spend a little extra for something more luxurious, you should give these bean bags a try. One thin about these is that they don’t have a physical store. You can’t see how comfortable online by looking at pictures. They have a pretty good video on their website that shows what it looks like and how it moves. If you want to see that, you should watch that video.

This is about all I have to say. If you have any questions, just ask me in the comments section. I think I’m going to be posting some pictures of my own soon so you can see what I’m talking about. I need a new camera, and was waiting until I get one. But the more I wait, the more I realize that the camera on my iPhone is probably perfectly capable of taking these pictures of my bean bag. There’s no need to get a professional photo shoot of my bean bags!

Redecorating with Bean Bags Today – My Review of These Behemoths

A2Indy is back today with a fun post. When redecorating our office for our new start we decided to make it fun and have some bean bag chairs. I was never really into bean bags, until I tried one out at my neighbors house. I guess I kind of associated bean bag chairs with hippies and lounging around all day. That’s not really my style, so I was surprised at how much I liked it.

Granted not all bean bags are the same. My neighbor’s are from giganticbeanbags.com which is a much higher end brand. I’ve been on some cheaper ones that I’ve found at the mall or target and it’s a world of difference. While I can’t speak for everyone, the gigantic bean bags are hands down the best.

First of all most of the other ones are made of plastic. The outside is some kind of vynil or something, which is fine if you’re in long pants and a long sleeve shirt. Basically, if your skin isnt going to be touching the thing then you’re fine. But, if you’re wearing shorts or a short sleeve shirt, or less, then it’s going to be uncomfortable. The vinyl material is going to rub and chafe. It’s not very comfortable at all.

On the other hand, the bean bag at my neighbor’s house is soft to the touch and very comfortable. It’s like a soft towel. You actually want to get your skin on it because it’s so cozy and comfortable.

Another great thing about the one I tried out is it’s size. I guess they call it gigantic for a reason. The one they had was 7 feet wide, I think. That may not sounds that big, but remember most of the ones you see at the store are like 3 feet wide. This is more of a bed than a chair to me. My queen sized bed is about 6 and a half feet long. Thing bean bag bed was 7 feet wide! Another thing to mention is that it’s not a rectangle, but it’s round. So, my queen bed is like 6.5 ft by 5.5 ft. This giant bean bag bed was 7 ft by 7 ft. Also, a matress is like a foot tall and this bag was around 3 feet tall. Maybe now that I compare the proportions of this bean bag to a queen sized bed, you see why I say it’s more like a bed than a chair.

Having this giant bean bag to stretch out on was great. We watch a movie, the new Star Wars, and had a great time. I was nervous about spilling my popcorn on his expensive new bean bag. But, he told me that you could take the cover off and wash it. It wouldn’t fit in his machine, but you can take it down to a laundromat and they could wash it for you for a like $5. Not bad.

I went to check out the website and I liked how they had different colors. It seems that the most popular color is black. My friend had a black one and that makes sense to me. Black is going to be a lot easier to match stuff with. With a bed, you can always just put a new sheet set on it, but with a bean bag, the cover is an integral part of the furniture. I guess it’s more like a couch in that sense. It’s like a couch with a cover you can take off and wash if you need to.

For my office, I decided to go with the charcoal gray color. It fits my color scheme the best in here. IT’s also a very neutral color. Pretty much everything goes with gray, so I won’t have any issues if I want to add more colors or change my color scheme later.

I was thinking about getting another bean bag from there, too. I think I have the room for it. Maybe a red one this time. I think the red will go well with the gray. But, maybe I’ll see how it goes with this one first. I want to see how the foam inside feels after a few weeks of sitting on it.

It was easy to unpack and didn’t have any issues with ordering, so not much to talk about there. The checkout process is quick and easy. You just pick the one you want and check out. Shipping was free, which is a big plus for me. I don’t like to do math when I’m shopping. You get what you pay for. It bothers me when I think I’m getting a great deal and then, bam, they hit you with the shipping charges. Sometimes I just don’t check out because it feels like a trick. They get you in the door with low prices on the product and then jack up the shipping charges to make up for it.

Thankfully that isn’t the case on this website, so I’m happy with both the product and the company that provides it.
