If there’s anything that the past year has taught us, it’s that being adaptable is the key to success, and it’s one of the main reasons why bean bag chairs have made a roaring comeback as we spend more time at home than ever.

Whether you’re snuggled up in front of a movie, using modular seating in your home office, or cuddling with your kids while reading a book before bedtime, bean bag chairs are infiltrating home furnishing options while showcasing their ingenious design.
We’ve scoured the internet and poured over reviews so that you can skip the work and get right to relaxing.
1. Big Joe Original Bean Bag Chair
Don’t be fooled by the appearance of the Big Joe Original Bean Bag Chair, because these rectangular chairs have created quite the buzz. Designed to be laid on, leaned on, propped up, and snuggled into, the Big Joe Original Bean Bag Chair is made from durable, stain and water-resistant, double-stitched SmartMax Fabric that is easily cleaned with damp cloth.
(Funny enough, we recently tested the Big Joe Captain’s Pool Float, and while we did not love it for pool adventures, it makes a great bean bag chair.)
Filled with UltimaX Beans that conform to your body, Big Joe Bean Bag Chairs are designed and filled in the U.S., in a zero-landfill facility so you can feel good about this incredibly comfortable purchase.
2. Chill Sack
The Chill Sack offers buyers the opportunity to “collapse into a seat that loves you back”; it’s an enticing claim that over 12,000 Amazon reviewers have agreed with and can confirm.
Oversized at 60 inches by 60 inches by 34 inches, filled with a shredded memory foam blend, and covered in a removable, breathable, moisture-resistant, double stitched, micro-suede cover that Chill Sack calls “soft, supple, and sensuous,” Chill Sacks are the perfect place to chill during life’s free moments.
3. Creative QT Stuffed Animal Storage Bean Bag Chair
Is it a chair or a storage option? Well it’s both, and it’s absolutely genius. Available in 12 adorable patterns and colors, the Creative QT Stuffed Animal Storage Bean Bag Chair arrives empty, because it was created to hold up to 90 of your own plush toys, blankets, and pillows.
Working to corral the clutter while doubling as a comfortable seating option that kids will absolutely love, this durable chair made of upholstery grade fabric and double stitched seams, has created a cult following with parents, and it’s easy to see why.
4. Ebern Standard Sunbrella Outdoor Friendly Bean Bag Chair and Lounger
Fear not, those of you who prefer the great outdoors, because the Ebern Standard Sunbrella Outdoor Friendly Bean Bag Chair and Lounger is specifically designed just for you.
Covered in fade-, mold-, and weather-resistant, solution-dyed acrylic that is fully machine washable, the chair is filled with polystyrene beads that offer a comfy seating option for your patio or pool deck.
With a child proof enclosure and the ability to support 250 pounds, you can kiss those uncomfortable patio chairs goodbye and impress your guests with the comfort of your living room, outside.
5. Sofa Sack
At 4.5 stars and over 12,500 Amazon reviews, it’s pretty clear that you can’t go wrong with a Sofa Sack.
Covered in a plush velvet, these 36 inch by 36 inch comfortable “beanless bag” chairs are filled with durable memory foam and are available in 15 different colors to match any décor.
6. Big Joe Lenox Large Fuf Foam Filled Bean Bag Chair
Imagine a world where your bean bag chair never goes flat. That’s the world the Big Joe Lenox Large Fuf Foam Filled Bean Bag Chair has created with its patented shredded foam technology; a design that promises your bean bag chair will never go flat.
With a removable and washable cover, there’s no reason why this chair can’t be an everyday option for maximum comfort.
7. Intex Beanless Bag Chair
Although a bit of an imposter in the bean bag genre, the Intex Beanless Bag Chair holds its own against its competition. Created to look and feel just like a classic bean bag chair, the Intex Beanless Bag Chair is actually an inflatable chair made of heavy duty vinyl; a perfect compromise for those working within a budget.
8. LoveSac Big One
Big enough for the whole family—but less of a space hog than LoveSac’s Sactional sofas, which we did, indeed, love when we tried it out—the LoveSac Big One is well known as the luxury choice of nearly all bean bag chair options. And at 6 feet wide, over 4 feet tall, and weighing in at an astounding 95 pounds, it’s easy to see why. Sporting a machine-washable cover and filled with premium Durafoam that never goes flat, the insert is covered by a generous lifetime warranty.
9. Yogibo Max
The ultimate family bean bag, the Yogibo Max is designed to easily fit up to four people at one time. Highly rated and extremely versatile in use, the Yogibo Max delivers a whopping 6 feet in length and is available in 13 different colors. Filled with microbeads and completed with a washable cover, the Yogibo Max promises to eliminate pressure points with its body conforming design.
10. Big Joe Dorm Bean Bag Chair
All the benefits of a Big Joe Bean Bag, but shaped like a chair for ultimate comfort. Weighing in at only 4.75 pounds, this genius design is created light for easy transport, and it sports a convenient carry handle and Big Joe’s signature locking zippers—ensuring that no matter where you take this chair, it’s going to hold up well. Ranking high in the comfort department, the Big Joe Bean Bag Chair is completed with a storage and drink pouch.
11. Ultimate Sack 6000
If you’ve had your eye on a LoveSac, but don’t have the budget for that kind of splurge, the Ultimate Sack may be your perfect fit. Offering an impressive 6 feet of space and covered in double-stitched suede that is available in 25 different colors, the Ultimate Sack 6000 is filled with virgin-shredded memory foam. Rated highly on Amazon, users appreciate the alternative furniture option to standard sofas and recliners.
12. Better Homes & Gardens Dream Bean Patio Bean Bag Chair
Another fabulous option to bring the comforts of home outdoors, the Better Homes & Gardens Dream Bean Patio Bean Bag Chair mimics the look of an indoor armchair, but was created for relaxing outside. Covered in solution-dyed polyester and filled entirely with recycled material, this chair is water resistant and available at a price that fits small budgets.
13. LoveSac GamerSac
Yes, there is even a bean bag chair for gamers, and it’s got all the amazing qualities of a larger LoveSac but is made specifically for smaller spaces. At a compact 2.6 feet wide by 2.8 feet high, and weighing in at 20 pounds, the GamerSac is an incredibly comfortable gamer chair (or, in our opinion, even a comfy reading spot in a child’s room). Filled with shredded Durafoam, it even includes a GamerSac duffle bag so you can be comfortable wherever you go.
14. Moon Pod
Claiming to be an anti-anxiety “zero-gravity beanbag that makes you feel like you're floating”
Moon Pod bean bag chairs are uniquely engineered to support any body shape whether you are sitting up or relaxing in a reclined position—and we’ve tested this bean bag chair ourselves. Filled with high-density beads designed to mimic float therapy, Moon Pods are covered in a stretchy fabric that’s totally washable.
