What Makes the Best Bean Bag Chairs?

Looking for the perfect bean bag chair can be overwhelming! There’s no shortage of them on the market, which makes it tricky to select the right one. Luckily, we know a thing or two about what makes a bean bag chair outstanding, and we’re here to help.

There are four main qualities you should keep an eye out for when it comes to your new bean bag. Today, we’re going to share what those essential requirements are. But first, we’ll quickly recap on the history of bean bags (it’s fascinating!), and later, we’ll talk about how CordaRoy’s fits into the picture.  

All About Bean Bag Chairs

Bean bag chairs have been around for decades, but how much do you know about them? If your answer is “Not much,” don’t worry. We’re going to walk you through some background on these fan-favorite chairs. 

Like many beloved products, no one really knows how the bean bag came about. It’s believed that Ancient Egyptians could be connected to the origin of the bean bag. The first iteration of the bean bag chair as we knew it was created in the late ‘60s by an Italian design firm. A revolutionary new design was born. 

The 1990s brought the bean bag into style once again, and since then, it’s been a mainstay of home furniture. Bean bag chairs have been workshopped and altered tremendously since their original inception, however. Today, they often feature different fillings than they did when they first originated.

What Makes a Bean Bag Chair the Best?

You might be wondering what makes a bean bag chair the best, and we have an answer for you. As we mentioned earlier, you can judge a bean bag chair based on four essential qualifications. If your chair doesn’t have these, then move along! Other brands (like CordaRoy’s!) certainly do. 

1. It’s a High-Quality Product

Arguably the most important thing to do when you’re considering a bean bag is to look into its quality. If you can’t find reviews mentioning this, then you’re better off looking elsewhere. There are some other signs that a bean bag is high-quality, too. If you notice that the retailer:


...then, you’re working with a high-quality product. There’s another easy way to gain some intel on the quality of the bean bag chair; simply search reviews on the retailer’s website. It’s that easy! 

Here at CordaRoy’s, we’re proud that we do all of that and more. We’ve been offering a lifetime warranty since 1998 because we believe in the products that we create. They were built to last, and they do. We also are committed to manufacturing our products right here in the United States. When you buy a CordaRoy’s product, you’re supporting factories at home. And finally, all of our pieces are custom-made. 

2. It Won’t Compress Over Time

You want to ensure that the bean bag chair you’re buying won’t compress over time. It’s terribly disappointing to watch your bean bag chair go flat after just a few uses, so do your research ahead of time and read what other buyers wrote about that.

With CordaRoy’s, you can be sure that you’re getting a product that will stay supportive for years to come. Our bean bag chairs are created using 100% polyfoam, which doesn’t compress over time. This means that you can expect to have your bean bag chair for much longer than others because it won’t lose its plushness. 

3. It Has Multiple Uses

The best bean bag is one that can be used in a variety of ways. Of course, you want a bean bag that you can relax on and read on, but what about one that you can sleep on? That’s right: some of our products even convert from bean bags to full-sized beds

If you have guests over, there’s no need to inflate a blow-up air mattress. Your bean bag chair can easily convert to a bed for your visitors to enjoy. Bonus: it’s infinitely more comfortable than a blow-up mattress.

4. It’s Easy To Wash or Change

If you’re planning on having your bean bag chair for a while (which, if you choose a CordaRoy’s product, you’ll certainly have it for years), you’re going to wash it intermittently. You should be sure you’re choosing a bean bag that’s easy to wash.

At CordaRoy’s, we pride ourselves on making it super convenient to clean your bean bag. All you have to do is unzip the cover and toss it in the washing machine. Yes, it really is that easy! Because it’s so easy to wash these covers, you can do it whenever you want--whether it’s because you spilled a drink on your bean bag or it can just use some freshening up.

CordaRoy’s also offers additional covers, so if you want, you can change your bean bag cover with your space. Some people opt to swap out the covers based on the season, others based on mood. Whatever you decide to do, you should know your bean bag is equipped to be able to switch it up as you wish.

Choosing the right bean bag doesn’t have to be complicated. CordaRoy’s checks all of these boxes and then some. You’ll be pleased with our convenient shipping, delightful customer service team if you have questions, and the top-notch quality product we sell. 

Whether you’re looking for your first bean bag chair or want to replace an old one from a different brand that’s falling flat, CordaRoy’s can help.
