Be it reading, playing a console, or watching television, or just chilling out, we have earlier established the many benefits of owning a bean bag chair. An even better reason to buy a bean bag, however, is that a high-quality bean bag adapts wonderfully to the body and thus enables a healthy sitting posture. These advantages (low weight, no sharp corners, relaxed sitting) make the beanbag more popular with young and old. Meanwhile, there is a huge selection of shapes, sizes, covers, and design available for every taste. Additionally, our four-legged darlings can also benefit from the soft, cuddly environment bean bags offer.
If all those features and more are what you are after, this next bean bag chair will do wonders. Although the Gold Medal Large Leather Look Tear Drop Bean Bag is the final bean bag chair to make our list, it is certainly not the least in terms of features. The Gold Metal brand is well known in the world of bean bag designs and have picked up many awards. Like its name suggests, this bean bag couch for adults is made in the shape of a delicate teardrop and offers a wide selection of colors including navy, cobblestone, and green, hot pink, medium blue, navy, purple, scarlet, walnut and wine. They are natural-looking, which is down to the faux leather fabric used in on their exterior and to ensure the beans don’t leak out and the seams don’t burst when sitting, they come with dual sutures that hold everything together. Interestingly, the internal polystyrene beans offer some flexibility and uniqueness to this bean bag couch as its structure tends to increase over time whilst still keeping its premium condition. You can also be sure that kids don’t get a mouthful of the beans as the zip is child-proof to ensure their safety. Overall, this item is most definitely an affordable buy, and luckily for US-based customers, they get to pay less for shipping costs which are considerably reduced.
