It arrived exactly as I had expected. In a GIANT box. Complete with tie-straps to make sure it didn't burst open during shipping, as such a large chair under vacuum-pack has quite the amount of potential energy.
I lugged it down the stairs to my lair- which is where the magic happens for me. Being a writer, more specifically a writer for Damninteresting.com, I am all about typing in comfort. The anticipation of receiving my new SumoSac Sultan was almost too much to bear. I have tried everything- from regular computer chairs, to expensive lumbar-supporting superchairs. And I am now glad to say that none of them compare to what the Sultan has to offer.
Enough of getting ahead of myself.
After getting the box downstairs, I opened it up, and all the potential energy of a vacuum packed giant chair was converted into kinetic energy, exploding outward in a brilliant display of comfort and quality. You can SEE the difference between the SumoSac and normal beanbag chairs when you open the box. It's not those annoying little beads inside your chair, it's high-quality foam cubes. This is a much better alternative, as it is not prone to go flat.
Put the stylish micro-suede cover over the chair, and you're left with a very chic piece of contemporary furniture. My little brother, a college student, was instantly hounding me to let him take my SumoSac to his dorm. My dogs looked longingly at me perched atop my newfound throne, as if they could sense the level of comfort I was enjoying.
And comfort it is.
Now, the SumoSac Sultan isn't your average wimpy beanbag chair. This baby looks like a semi truck compared to a Geo Metro. It is not something you need to use as a footrest in your recliner: it IS your recliner. As I figured out how to climb atop its massive bulk of comfyness (enough so that I need to create new adjectives to describe the SumoSac experience), I realized I was in for a treat. Not only is it large enough to double as a spare bed when your in-laws come over, but it's the most relaxing piece of furniture you will ever grace yourself with. You literally SINK into the foam, while it conforms to your body, providing support for even the most intense activities.
As a writer, I tend to spend large amounts of time sitting with my computer typing away, and from the very minute I settled into my SumoSac Sultan, I could feel the difference it provided in helping promote a stress-free writing environment. I hate getting sore or having to get up and stretch while working on a piece, and I have yet to come even close to that point in the Sultan. In fact, I'm writing this write now while enjoying my SumoSac.
I love it so much in fact, that I haven't really moved for the past 4 hours. I may even sleep on it tonight. Kudos to the SumoSac team for creating such a unique, and amazing, product. I can foresee the SumoSac Sultan being compatible with every lifestyle- perfect for a college dorm, a replacement for a lumpy couch in your apartment, even a new crochet chair for grandma. You were really on the ball with this one!
From the perspective of a humble writer, the SumoSac Sultan is a sure thing, and one purchase you WON'T regret.

So back in February, I reviewed an extraordinary product from Sumo: the Gigantor, a premium beanbag large enough for the whole family, a replacement for a sofa. (Star Trek-obsessed household that we are, it was soon dubbed “The Tribble.”) Now Sumo has a new, portable product that also intimidates and challenges expectation Continue reading →
The Omni Reloaded isn't a bean bag -- instead, it's a polyurethane chair/backrest. It takes up a lot less room than Sumo's normal products, as you can scrunch it up and store it upright in a closet, or with the included travel bag. "Scrunching" as I call it is the name of the game, as you can pretty much contort this thing into any form you want. Continue reading →
I love my Lazy Boy couch and my double recliner, but most furniture items want you to adapt to them instead of the other way around. You can’t easily move a recliner around your home from room to room or fold it up and shove it under the bed when you don’t need it. But with the new Sumo Omni Reloaded from Sumo Lounge you can do exactly that. Continue reading →
