When it comes to home décor, there is nothing more intriguing than the way in which trends seem to recycle a generation or two down the road. As far back as anyone can remember, styles became revamped and updated to some extent but in the end, were quite similar to furniture and décor that was popular 20 or 30 years prior. Only this time around it is not just ordinary furniture of the day. The updated styles are now found in the most fashionable of homes. However, when it comes to bean bag chairs and sack furniture, you can tell immediately that there are definite improvements. In fact, there are at least three surprising benefits of modern bean bag chairs that set them far above those popular in the 60s and 70s.

1. Environmental Benefits

You may wonder what the difference is between bean bag chairs of days gone by and those made today. Both are made from polystyrene beads, aren’t they? Actually, the answer is a little more complex than that. Some bean bag chairs are made from new plastics while others are made from recycled materials such as soda bottles and other containers of the sort. In those early days of bean bag chairs, you would never have found recycled materials. That was only just the beginning of our awareness of the ecology and what we are doing to it. So, yes, today’s sack furniture sold by Comfy Sacks is superior in that respect.

2. Even Distribution of Body Weight

Today you will find a great deal of hype surrounding ergonomic chairs but when it comes right down to it, they have nothing on bean bag chairs. Once you slip down into a bean bag chair you will find that your body weight is distributed evenly which leaves you feeling literally weightless. Any aches and pains along your spine seem to disappear in a heartbeat. For anyone suffering from back pain of any kind, you can’t beat the comfort of a chair stuffed with expanded polystyrene balls. 

3. Easier to Clean than Upholstered Chairs and Couches

While this is typically a worry for anyone who has small children or pets, it can also be a huge concern for those suffering from allergies. With this type of chair, you can wash the zippered cover as often as necessary. Of course, you wouldn’t want to wash it too often because that could lighten the colors by a certain degree. However, when there is dog hair, cat hair, pollen, and dust flying almost invisibly around the room, it pays to know you can wash any allergens away before they cause a reaction in anyone suffering from environmental allergies.

There is nothing quite like the comfort of knowing you can slip into a chair that supports the entire body after a long, hard day at work. Anyone suffering from aches and pains, or allergies will find that bean bag chairs can add a nice touch to décor while providing relief and relief from much of what ails them.
