Review: SumoBags Titan Beanbag Couch
When SumoBags approached me about writing about one of their beanbag chairs, I figured that since we write about games and gamers like beanbag chairs that it might be a good match. Little did I know that the Sumo Titan is one of the biggest freaking beanbag chairs I’ve ever seen. It is, in fact, so massive that I’d consider it a couch. It also gets bigger over time, thereby proving theories about the danger of nanotechnology and the so-called "grey goo."
We reviewed a smaller beanbag chair last year, finding it to be comfortable and handsome. This chair, barring its absolute enormity, is also comfortable and I was able to sleep on, slightly curled into a fetal position but in relative ease for at least an hour one lazy weekend afternoon – and I’m not a small guy.
The chair is a full 70” x 49” x 36” and ships in a box about half the size of that. In fact, when you remove the chair from the box it grows enormously. I opened it on the first floor and by the time I tried to drag it upstairs it was too big to fit through most of our doors.
Obviously a giant bean bag couch isn’t for everyone. You can probably fit two people on here on a good day and three people on here with a bit of snuggling. As I said before, you can also potentially sleep on it but I’m not sure how it would handle an overnight stay. However, there is also another caveat: the price. At $379.99 this thing is far more expensive than you think it would be and, what’s more, it may scare off potential buyers. But, to be clear, this thing is ginormous even if you base your couch buying decisions on value per cubic foot, this is probably a winner.
So barring the size and the price, if you’re looking for furniture with no sharp edges, this is pretty much the couch for you. Otherwise, you might want to stick with something smaller and or less massive.
A Trusted Brand
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 →
