Qualities of the Best Bean Bag Chairs

Bean bag chairs have come a long way from their humble beginnings as a bag full of real beans or some other uncomfortable filler. These days the best bean bag chairs are filled with expanded polystyrene (EPS) beads that provide cushion and support for every part of your body. For example, the Yogibo Max is large enough to support you from your head to your toes, so if you need to use it as a bed, you’re good to go. Here are some other qualities of a top-rated bean bag chair.

They Are Multi-Layered

If you have a bean bag that has just one layer and that layer tears or is otherwise damaged, you’ll have a real mess on your hands. The beads inside that single layer will spill out and get all over the place. Look for a bean bag that consists of two layers. The inner layer is the actual bag that contains the beads and the outer layer is a cover that gives the bean bag its style. If the cover is ripped or torn, the tiny EPS beads will still be contained in the inner bag, meaning you won’t have a huge mess to clean up.

They Come With Washable and Replaceable Covers

Maybe you spilled something on your bean bag cover. Or perhaps you no longer love the color pink like you once did and wish you had chosen a different color bean bag for your living room. The best bean bag chairs come with a removable cover that can be washed or replaced. Washable covers are self-explanatory in that these covers can be removed and tossed into a washing machine if they become soiled.

A replaceable cover requires a little more explanation. Even if you buy a multi-layered bean bag with a removable cover, it doesn’t always mean you can replace just the cover. Many companies don’t offer replacement covers or if they do, they only offer the cover in the same color you already purchased. An upscale product like the Yogibo, though, sells its covers separately and in as many as 14 colors. So, you won’t be stuck with a color that no longer matches your new style and you won’t have to replace the entire bean bag, either.

They Are Durable

What’s the point of buying a luxury bean bag chair if you have to replace it soon after it meets your kids or your pets? You want to choose a bean bag that is both kid and pet friendly, with a cover that won’t rip or split with the slightest abuse. The Yogibo Max is designed to be used, which means it’s durable and will hold up to just about anything your kids and pets can throw at it. The covers are made from a cotton-spandex fabric blend, so it’s strong and stretchy. If your child jumps on a Yogibo Max, it’s not going to suddenly split or tear. It will change shape to withstand the landing and then gently conform to your child’s body. 


If you’re going to invest in a luxury bean bag, make sure it’s the best on the market by considering the number of layers it has, its covers, and its overall durability. You’ll be glad you made your choice with such care.
