Bean bag chairs are great for relaxing with a book, your favorite movie or tv show, or a nice afternoon nap. Whether you want to put it in your bedroom, living room, or your college dorm room it will always add a nice spot for you or a friend just chill in.
Bean bag chairs have come a long ways since my childhood—there have been a lot of improvements to these kinds of seating options. Now a bean bag can sit multiple people, change into a chair or a bed, and many have made serious improvements in the softness of the material and the inner stuffing that allows them retain their charming levels of fluffiness as well as their durability. There are even a great number of size options ranging from your classic 5 foot bean bag all the way up to a giant 8 feet!
