Indulge in comfort on the Sumo Lounge Omni

When Andrew from Sumo Lounge contacted me offering a sample of the Sumo Omni, I was intrigued. After all, he did claim it to be the most comfortable chair in the world. I thought; “As if anyone could even know that!”

Four days, 10,000 miles and one very speedy FedEx delivery later, I unwrapped what resembled a circus big-top, and began frantically dialing numbers trying to track down a bean-bag-fill supplier with enough stock to satisfy my unusual requirements – enough beans for 4 standard bags?

You see, the Sumo Lounge is, as its name suggests, large. I’m not a big guy by any means, so it wouldn’t take much to accommodate my scrawny frame, but when I first lay down, I instantly become one with the Sumo. Andrew was right; it is unmistakeably the world’s most comfortable bean-bag, sofa, chair and bed, all in one.

It’s not until your totally comfortable with the sheer size and versatility of the Sumo Lounge that you really begin to appreciate its ingenuity. For not only is it big and comfortable, it also looks great, is the centre of attention and will leave you wondering why you ever bought a sofa. My old leather lounge-suite now sits alone in the corner gathering dust, traded up for a far more intelligent solution. Also, at a fraction of the cost of any other suite on the market, it just makes so much sense.

Now that my Sumo is as much a part of my apartment as I am – let’s face it, it’ll be a lot easier to get me out the door than it! – I find myself constantly challenged by a new problem to solve: Do I feel like lying, sitting, leaning or straddling? Maybe I’m in a lounging type of mood. No, I’m far too exhausted to merely lounge. Tonight I’m going for the all out loll.

Rediscover your laziness, you’ll thank me for it!
