Sumo Omni

To tell the truth I had never been much of a fan of bean bags. I considered them to be relics of the 70s which were trumpeted as being not only groovy, but extremely comfortable. I found them to be neither.

With that in mind, I wish that the good folk at Sumo had chosen not to call their products ‘bean bag chairs‘. Yes, they are chairs that you fill with beans, but I’d hate you to think that they’re just a new version of an old idea … they’re so much more.

I was sent an Omni chair to review and when it came to colour I chose the ‘incredibly red’ one. When it arrived I opened it, then opened it again and then I opened it some more. It really is a big chair. It was so much more than I was expecting and that is probably the best way to explain the Omni. It was more that I expected in size, more than I expected in quality, more than I expected in comfort and more than I expected as a good looking piece of furniture.

The Omni can be wrangled in so many ways to created the perfect chair and I do mean wrangled. (They say you can create 10 different positions with it.) I’m not a small guy so I was always hesitant when sitting on an old style bean bag. I was never sure whether the stitching would hold out or if maybe I’d end up drowning in a sea of small white balls, trying to gather them up to force them back in to a hole which was by now rapidly expanding. No such worries with Sumo’s Omni. It’s tough … very tough. I’m not likely to try it but I reckon I could dive on the Omni from a great height with complete confidence in it’s toughness and durability.

One of my other concerns with older bean bag chairs is that most are made of fabric that would happily harbour all kinds of nasty spills and stains. How are you going to wash something like that? Empty the beans, wash the bag and then refill? No thanks. The Omni sorts that problem right away. It’s made with PVC coated nylon so it’s so very easy to clean. Just wipe it clean. You can sit on your clean Omni in complete confidence.
