Bean Bag Chairs for Comfy Kids, Teens and Guests

Nothing says “relax” like popping a squat on a cozy bean.

If hugs were furniture, they’d be bean bag chairs. Because they’re intrinsically ergonomic, molding around the shape of the sitter, beans alleviate pressure and feel good on your back. Plus, they’re just good fun—for kids and kids-at-heart alike.

Some bean bags aren’t just chairs—they’re beds, too. A convertible style is a dream for anyone short on space or a guest room. A bean bag chair is a cute accessory in a kid’s room, and friends won’t have to bring a sleeping bag or air mattress for slumber parties.

Look for a machine-washable cover. An easily cleaned, removable outer is a must for a bean bag chair, especially if children (or pets!) will be climbing on it. The most secure models have an inner lining so that you don’t spill the beans when you unzip the cover.

If you want to make sure your chair isn’t too hard or too soft but just right, choose a style with removable and replaceable beans—i.e. no sealed inner liner—so you can customize how densely packed your chair is.
