ROO

title 

 


Designed by:
Ulla Koskinen for Woodnotes

Why we love it: This amazing beanbag is made from spun paper yarn. A paper beanbag? We know, amazing, right? It invites you to recline and relax. Much love.

Where you can get it:

Anibou and Woodnotes

Big Elephant

title 

 

Designed by: Yenn Design

Why we love it: The name automatically makes this a playful design. We like to think of them more as a pair of elephant’s pants, sewn up and stuffed. Can be used in a heap of different positions on its own or with others.

Swell

Designed by: Form Us With Love

Why we love it: This beanbag has structure. A beautiful wire frame makes this much more of a chair, but still with that sinky feeling of a beanbag. Like a pudgy rosebud.

Where you can get it:

Voice Furniture

FATBOY Jeans

Designed by: Original by Jukka Setala

Why we love it: The Fatboy is like an oversized pillow. So simple, so big, and in denim, so cool!

Hub Furniture and Fatboy

 

 

Bonnet

Designed by:
Liset Van der Scheer

Why we love it: Although these little guys are more pouffes than bean bags, their form is similar and so appealing. Coming in a number of shapes and sizes the pieces have removable knitted ‘bonnet’ covers. Gotta love the little bonnet detail at the top!

Where you can get it:

Casalis

Togo

 

Designed by: Michel Ducaroy for Ligne Roset

Why we love it: This is the grown-ups version of the beanbag. Taking that plumpy aesthetic and bringing it to a lounge setting is pure genius.

Domo Collections

Coffee Fellow Beanbag

title 


Designed by: Johanna Hansson

Why we love it: Made from 8 recycled coffee bean bags sewn together, this beanbag would have to be a coffee lover’s dream spot.

Where you can get it:

e-side

Marine Beanbag

title 

 

Designed by: Coast New Zealand

Why we love it: Why not take the beanbag outdoors? That’s what Coast New Zealand have done with their range of waterproofed beanbags. The classic beanbag shape in the garden, could you ask for more?
