It’s a comfy chair… no, it’s a lounger and a recliner… no, it’s a cool bed for a six-year-old… or perhaps a perfect bed for a small or even large pooch.

Well, how about a very large body pillow?

Technically Sumo chairs are beanbag chairs but that antiquated description hardly does justice to such a versatile sitting device. Forget those nasty ungainly ’70s things that we called beanbags. The modern Sumo is as described by the company, Urban Lounging Gear.

The Gamer chair contains shredded foam, which makes it feel even less than a beanbag and more like a conventional, comfortable armchair.

The cover comes in three different types: The original Microsuede (in 4 color choices), in Corduroy (in 6 colors) and in Ultimate (in 3 colors). We chose the Corduroy in purple and we could not be happier with our choice. The Corduroy bands are much thicker than what you’d expect from Corduroy clothes and the material is very soft and totally yummy.

Will the Gamer improve your video game playing? Don’t know about that. But will it make playing more comfortable? Definitely.

The chair measure 42″ X 42″ X 34″ and the prices are $199, $219 and $299 depending on the cover fabric. Shipping is free. More info at
