My New Sumo Beanbag Is Bigger Than Our Dining Table!

Hey guys! Got something really cool to show you today. A couple of weeks ago I got an email from Andrew the founder of Sumo Lounge saying that he was expanding his company into Australia and being a fan of this blog would love to offer me an Omni Bean bag chair!

Obviously whenever I get offered something for free I get excited, but when I visited their website and saw how big the beanbag actually was, I got really excited! The website says that it is 5 1/2 feet by 4 1/2 feet in size – numbers don’t do justice for most people so I decided to get my fiance to sit on it to give you a better idea of how big this bean bag actually is!


My new Omni Sumo Lounge is almost as big as a bed, and to be completely honest I got so excited when it arrived at my door that the same night I decided to ditch my bed and sleep on my new bean bag – and it defiantely passes as a spare bed.

This beanbag could not have come at a better time, as it came the same day that I proposed to my fiance, so when it arrived I messaged her saying,

“My beanbag arrived!!!!!! We now have our first piece of furniture :D”

Now I know it just looks like a regular beanbag, but the thing I love about it is that there are so many different ways for you to sit/lay on it! So using my fiance as our model for the day here are a few of the ways I love to use my new Sumo Omni!


The Sofa/Lounge

When we get married and find a place of our own to live we won’t even need a sofa! Lean this beanbag up against a wall and you have a 2 person sofa.


The Seat

One chair short in a discussion? Pull up your Sumo Lounge and you will have everyone wanting to trade seats with you!


The Extra Bed

Who needs a spare mattress under the bed for when friends come over, when you have your Sumo Beanbag? Flatten it out and just give them a pillow and planket. Quick and easy, and extremely comfy!


The Body Pillow

I didn’t know what to call this one, but it kinda reminds me of one of those really long pillows that you lay on and stick between your legs, so I called it the Body Pillow. this one is especially good with watching my tv, as we have a rear projection tv and if you are laying on the ground then the picture is hard to see. So this position gives you so height and is very comfortable!


Horse Riding?

I had some friends over to watch a movie the other night and I tried this one out – and absolutely loved it! While everyone had a laugh at how funny I looked, it seriously is awesome. While you still have the soft beanbag feel, you also have a very strong back support!

How Much?

Now you have seen how much fun these beanbags are, I’m sure you are curious to know how much it will cost you to have one of your one?! Well Sumo have a range of different sizes for their bean bags (check out the GIGANTOR!) but for the one that I got – The Sumo Omni, you are able to buy one through their website for $149! (And did I mention FREE SHIPPING!)

I think that this is a great value consider the many different ways that you can use it. I mean we were looking at sofa’s the other day and the cheapest they seem to be is $400. This means that we can just use our Sumo Lounge as our sofa for a while and save $250.

Fiona and I love my Sumo Lounge!

And I’m not just saying that. Ever since it arrived, Fiona always wants to just come over and watch a movie and lay on the beanbag – probably when we should be doing wedding planning!! These things are the coolest pieces of funiture I have seen, and I can wait to move out now and have just two items of funiture in my lounge room – a TV and my Sumo Lounge!
