Which CordaRoy’s Bean Bag is Best for Adults?

CordaRoy's has an excellent selection of bean bag chairs designed specifically for adults. Our NEST adult bean bags are a popular option, providing a supportive seating solution that can blend seamlessly in your home, from the bedroom to the living room. 

These one-of-a-kind bean bags come with added neck and back support, making them ideal for extended periods of lounging and relaxation. Not only that, but this bean bag chair is specially designed to help manage your posture. 

Unlike slab bean bag chairs that lack flexibility and body support, our NEST bean bag chair conforms to your body, promoting good posture by keeping your bones and joints in alignment. This helps to prevent back pain and the need to constantly adjust your seating position for maximum comfort.   

What's great about the NEST is that they're not limited to being used as a seating option in your home. Our NEST adult bean bag chairs can also be converted into a bed, providing a convenient and practical solution for overnight guests. They’re an excellent alternative to bulky air mattresses that take up space and require additional tools to set up.  

For those looking for the ultimate unwinding experience, you’re in luck! Our giant bean bag is our biggest bean bag chair yet, making it the best seat in the house. With no weight limit, this oversized bean bag can comfortably accommodate more than two people, making it perfect for movie nights or family gatherings. Its larger than life size also makes it an exceptional alternative to a traditional sofa, providing a cozy and stylish seating option that's ideal for any home.

Which Bean Bag Size is Best for Adults?

When it comes to relaxation, there’s nothing better than sinking into the cozy embrace of a bean bag chair. They make for a cozy and relaxing environment, optimal for anyone looking to unwind after a long day. 

So, which bean bag size is best for adults? There are a few factors to consider when deciding on the size of a bean bag chair that’s right for you, including the space you have available. 

Let’s take a closer look at some of the best bean bags for adults.

NEST Adult Bean Bags

If you're on the hunt for a medium-sized bean bag that provides unrivaled comfort and support, look no further than CordaRoy's NEST. This is no ordinary bean bag; it's a convertible chair that boasts a defined top and bottom for ultimate relaxation. You'll feel instantly cocooned in a cozy oasis the moment you sink into its plush embrace.

The NEST is available in three sizes: King, Queen, and Full. 

King: The King-sized NEST is fit for royalty, offering a roomy and luxurious seating option that will make you feel like a king or queen on your throne. 

Queen: The Queen size is slightly smaller, but its medium sized style still offers ample space for one or two people to sit or lounge.

Full: The Full-sized NEST bean bag is a smaller medium sized bean bag chair, ideal for those who want a comfortable and cozy seat to curl up in while reading a book or watching TV.

All three sizes offer superior comfort, but the larger sizes offer ample space for adults to spread out and relax. 

What sets the NEST apart from other bean bags is its handy pockets for phones and remotes, keeping everything within arm’s reach. Plus, the NEST Chair's handle on the back makes it easy to move to your favorite spot in the house. That’s not all - the soft and durable covers are machine washable, and come in a variety of colors and fabrics to match any décor.  

For an enhanced lounging experience, consider adding a pouf to your NEST bean bag. Poufs offer an additional layer of cushioning and can be used as a seat or footrest. By pairing a pouf with your NEST, you'll create the ultimate seating experience that feels like lounging on a cloud.

The Giant Bean Bag

Looking for bean bags in XXL sizes? Get ready to take your relaxation to the next level with CordaRoy’s Giant Bean Bag. As the name suggests, this bean bag is big – really big!

With a massive diameter of 7 feet with bulging, this extra large bean bag chair is the perfect size for those who want to share the ultimate lounging experience with friends and family. Whether you’re watching a movie with friends, having a game night with family, or simply taking a nap, its overly large-size will give you plenty of room to stretch out and relax.

Our giant bean bags are made with 100% eco-friendly polyfoam, making it the biggest and best seat in the house. The cover is also made of soft, durable fabric that's easy to clean and maintain.

Questions to Ask When Choosing a Bean Bag

Before buying the perfect size of bean bag for your home, it’s important to keep some things in mind. To help you make the best choice, here are some key questions to ask yourself: 

How Much Space is Available?

Before choosing a bean bag, it's important to consider the amount of space you have available in your home. The last thing you want is your home to feel cluttered. 

For smaller spaces, our NEST bean bag chairs may be a better option. They’re designed to fit in compact spaces without sacrificing on comfort. 

If you have a spacious family room, our giant bean bag would make a great addition. With its ample size, it can accommodate multiple people and add a touch of casual elegance to any room. 

How Many People Plan on Using the Bean Bag at a Time

Another important factor to consider is how many people will be using the bean bag at a time. Planning to share the bean bag with a spouse, children, or pets? A small sized bean bag may not be the best choice. Instead, you may want to opt for a larger size that can accommodate multiple people.

What is Your Budget?

Budget is always an important consideration when making any purchase. Bean bags come in a wide range of prices, so it's important to determine your budget before starting your search. While cheaper options may be more budget-friendly, they may not be as durable or comfortable as higher-end options. On the other hand, more expensive bean bags may be a worthwhile investment in terms of quality and longevity.

By considering these key factors, you'll be able to choose a bean bag that meets your needs and preferences.
