Holiday Guide: Gear For Every Gamer

SUMO Sway Couple Lounge Chair

The holiday season is fast approaching, and we’ve got the perfect list of gifts for the gamer in your family (even if that person is you).


How is a bean bag chair a gaming accessory, you ask? Well, there’s nothing better than plopping down on a SUMO lounge chair in front of your 50-inch plasma TV, playing Halo: Reach, feeling comfy and cozy and settling in for hours. This thing feels way better on your backside than a run of the mill couch or easy chair.

The SUMO Sway Couple is one of the bigger beanbag chairs the company offers, and is available in microsuede or corduroy. This is an extremely comfortable lounge seat, and is perfect for use in front of the TV or in the corner as a reading/Nintendo DS station. The attached pocket is perfect for remotes or a bottle of refreshment, and the chair-like design (it’s shaped like a chair, not just a square beanbag) proves to be fairly ergonomic during gaming marathons.

The Sway Couple goes for $279 (microsuede) or $299 (corduroy), but SUMO has other beanbag chairs that start at $139.
