Casa Beta: Sumo Omni
Recently, I got to test the Sumo Omni ($149). While it's technically a bean bag, it's a lot cooler than the bean bags I grew up with. The Omni is close to indestructible, made from rip-proof nylon and filled with Sumo Beads (aka tiny white foam balls). It's big, too, measuring in at 4.5 by 5.5 feet.
To hear what I thought of the Omni, as well as the opinions of some of my fellow Sugar friends, read more.
The Omni is definitely comfortable, and it's become a favorite spot for breaks in the office as well as for casual office meetings. I'd definitely recommend it for a children's room or a rumpus room arrangement. However, I don't really see how any grown-up home could integrate it successfully into most rooms. It's one of those classic decorating problems: Sometimes, the more comfortable something is, the less you want to actually see it in your home.
Here's what some of my coworkers thought:
CitizenSugar said: "I loved it. Very moldable and good for your posture."
FabSugar: "I love it. So comfy!"
GiggleSugar: "It's not much to look at, and the exterior could be a softer material, but I could lay back and read in that thing for hours."
BuzzSugar: "So, basically, I was comfortable on it, but it was also a lot harder than I thought it would be. I didn't get that beanbag feeling of really sinking into something. It was more like, I sat down, and suddenly this hard plasticky material was all around me. Kind of disconcerting. But, on the other hand, it was nice to have something a little more solid to lean against than what I was expecting."
