A simple yet stylish design, this Charcoal Canvas Bean Chair from Dunelm would make the perfect addition to a living room with a variety of interior styles. Detailed cross effect twine stitching adds to its slightly rustic appeal, as does its convenient rope handle.
A comfortable chair shaped design offers additional back support to the user, allowing them the comfort of a bean bag with the structure of a chair.
Made from soft and sumptuous 100 per cent sheepskin carefully manufactured in the UK, this large, long pile soft white beanbag from Cox & Cox exudes luxury and would add a touch of warmth and texture to a minimal or Scandi-chic living room.
With a soft grey non slip leather base, zip closure and generously filled with beans, once you sink into this sumptuous beanbag you won’t want to get out.
Thanks to its tough, water-resistant fabric and wipe-clean finish, this extra-large beanbag can be used both indoors and outdoors.
It’s outlandishly large, which makes it perfect for use as a chair, lounger, or gigantic floor cushion. An excellent seating solution for barbecues, reading or napping in the garden on sunny days, or for a teenager’s room or games room to give their friends somewhere to lounge, the versatility of the Big Bertha Original, available at Amazon, makes it a favourite of ours.
If you're looking for a sleek and stylish living room addition, the Studio Texture Lounger from Next is an ideal option that's much more budget friendly than other options on the market.
Its simple, seamless finish would suit most schemes, with its fabric even matching some sofa ranges from Next if you're looking for a more cohesive look.
