5 Steps to Choosing the Right Bean Bag Chair for You

There is always a right time to refresh your living space and make it feel new again. One simple and fashionable way to do this is by outfitting your home with a stylish, unique bean bag chair. 

At Big Joe, we have come a long way since in the world of what is considered a "bean bag". Today, you can find a wide variety of bean bag chairs that are stylish, comfortable, and, yes, even classy. If you're looking to add a unique and comfortable seating option to your place of leisure or researching furniture for your starter home, consider outfitting it with a bean bag chair. Here's how:

1. Choose a high-quality bean bag chair

You get what you pay for when it comes to bean bag chairs. Cheap bean bag chairs will likely be made with low-quality materials and may need to be more comfortable and durable than their higher-priced counterparts. To ensure you get a good product, look for a bean bag chair made with high-quality materials such as durable fabrics, sturdy zippers, and a cozy filling. 

2. Opt for a neutral color

While bright and bold colors can be fun, they may not be the most versatile option when selecting items for your space. Instead, opt for a neutral beige, grey, or black color. These colors are timeless and will complement a wide variety of decor styles. We recommend our Milano with Vibe for an elevated look. This USB-powered massage bean chair is covered in our premium vegan leather offered in Caramel and Black Montana.

3. Look for a chair with a sleek design

Gone are the days of only finding the traditional, round bean bag chair. Today, you can find bean bag chairs in various shapes and sizes, including ones with a more streamlined and modern design. Look for a bean bag chair with clean lines and a sleek shape to give it a more sophisticated look. Our Milano with Vibe has a structured design for back support while keeping a sleek and compact silhouette.

4. Consider the added features

If you want to take your bean bag chair to the next level, consider the extra features such as easy-to-clean covers, built-in armrests, or even a built-in cup holder. The Milano with Vibe offers a built-in two-speed massage function and a side pocket to keep your items close by. These features can add a touch of luxury to your bean bag chair, making it even more comfortable and convenient.

5. Dress it up to your unique style!

As with any furniture, it's essential to consider how your bean bag chair will fit in with the rest of your decor. If you have a more traditional or formal living space, opt for a bean bag chair in a neutral color and a sleek design. If your apartment has a more laid-back or bohemian vibe, you can afford to be more playful with your bean bag chair choice. Just be sure to consider the overall aesthetic of your space and choose a bean bag chair that will fit in seamlessly. 

By following these tips, you can successfully refresh your space for the new year with a unique chair that is both comfortable and stylish. So go ahead and add a one-of-a-kind and relaxing seating option to your home – you won't be disappointed!
