Before you fear your home will look like the 90s came in and threw up all over the floor consider this: what typifies something as not cool? If you like it, own it! Cool bean bag chairs were a staple in our childhoods, and even though you think they faded from the public eye along with your love of fun, these chairs are here to stay. Why you ask?

Great for Gamers

Anyone who owns a video game console can benefit from a comfortable, cool bean bag chair. In fact, the average gamer is 35 years old and 80% of us own a console, proving that games and activities that bring you actual joy have no age limit. If you’re going to be trapped in your room all day staring at a screen, a huge bean bag chair can offer serious levels of comfort.

They Have Health Benefits

Bet you $5 you didn’t see this one coming. Yes, sitting in this bundle of beans can actually be good for your health. Comfy bean bag chairs provide a level of relaxation that can only be experienced when you sink into their plush folds, helping ease mental and body tensions and lowering levels of depression. Additionally, bean bag chairs are ergonomic and help people who suffer from the regular aches and pains caused by bad posture. Why waste your cool bean bag chairs on a kid who hasn’t even heard of the word “herniated disk?”

One Word: Variety

The different types of bean bag chairs available on the market today are astounding. You can buy a fuzzy bean bag chair, one made out of memory foam, a small or a big bean bag chair, a green bean bag chair, a rainbow one, a corduroy bean bag chair — the list goes on and on. Buy one in fun colors for your kids or replace your bed with a giant bean bag chair. Plant a suede one in your living room to show the world you’re classy, but still like to have a little fun. Buy one with a back and armrests to keep your posture in check. The number of styles, materials, and type of bean are endless, and you don’t have to break the bank to find the perfect one for you. Which leads us to the next point.


Buying a bean bag chair won’t drain your savings unless you want it to. Some cool bean bag chairs can cost a couple hundred dollars, but many won’t surpass double digits. Finding the right style of chair and looking at the cost will help you decide the perfect bean bag chair for you.

Bean bag chairs get a bad rap for their fun, carefree look. Though adulthood has stripped away some of your child-like wonder, buying a bean bag chair will prove to the world you’re still a fun-loving person who enjoys indulging in the comforts a cool chair has to offer.
