How To Choose Poof Chairs & Bean Bag Chairs - Articles Surfing

What Is a Poof Chair (Foof Chair)?

A Poof chair (sometimes called a Foof chair), is a chair that is filled with shredded, polyurethane foam. A Poof chair is softer than a traditional bean bag. Poof chairs soothe tired, aching joints because there are no pressure points, unlike the traditional bean bag chair.

What Is Poof Chair Cover Made Of?

Poof chair cover is made of durable wear-resistant and stain-resistant fabrics that are double stitched and double zippered for added safety.

How Much Does A Poof Chair Cost?

The price ranges from under US$100 for a small Poof chair. Mid-range prices are between US$130 and US$200 for a medium size Poof chair, and large Poof chairs can cost upwards to US$300.

Why Should I Consider Buying A Poof Chair?

Because they are very comfortable. The Poof chair engulfs your body into a soothing and supple cushion of patented, polyurethane foam. There are no pressure points. You can easily fluff (refoof) your chair again and again for years of enjoyment.

What Is A Bean Bag Chair?

A bean bag chair is popular form of furniture made of fabric and filled with small chunks of styrofoam or PVC pellets. Bean bag chairs have acquired a cult following.

Beans bags, often simply small bags literally filled with dried beans, are used in a number of children's games involving throwing and catching or throwing at targets.

Since the mid 1990s, some companies have begun selling chairs filled with shredded polyurethane foam, charging a premium for the extra comfort this can provide. Bean bag chairs are known to bean bag enthusiasts by many names, such as "Physics Bag" or "Oversized Sac".

What Materials Are Used To Make Bean Bag Chairs?

Bean bags today use polystyrene bead for filling. Polystyrene bead originally comes in a sugar form and steam is blown into the sugar to expand it. It is also called expanded polystyrene or EPS in the industry. The diameter of the bead that goes into the bean bag does vary from about 3 - 9mm. However, you can now also purchase micro-bead which is 1 - 3mm in diameter. After a couple of years of use, the beans within a bean bag will become compressed and comfort will be reduced. You can generally pick up smaller bags of refill to top them up.

In 2005, a UK based company developed a new style of bean bag, shifting away from the standard blob style to a more stylish designer range of furniture. This style of bean bag has quickly caught on with expats living in London, primarily because they don't want to buy expensive leather suites to only use for a couple of years before returning to their home overseas.

What Should I Consider When Buying A Bean Bag Chair?

There are many things to look at when considering the purchase of a bean bag chair. Some of the factors to take into account are size, material, print, filling and price. There is no "one-size-fits-all" solution for a bean bag chair. Different people will find different things appealing, and ultimately the most important factor in purchasing a bean bag chair is whether or not you like it.

Moreover, when looking for a bean bag chair, it is important to find one with a removable outer sleeve. These are usually coupled with a water-resistant inner liner which stays on at all times to contain the bean bag filling. With a sleeve that can be removed and washed, you can keep your bean bag chair clean and in good repair quite easily.

Whatever bean bag chair you ultimately choose, don't forget to try it out first or, if you purchase online, to make sure there is a flexible return policy. A bean bag chair should feel as though it is molding to your body when you sit in it '- this ultra-decadent feeling of comfort is after all the main reason for choosing a bean bag chair over more traditional furniture.

In What Sizes Do Bean Bag Chairs Come?

Bean bag chairs come in sizes ranging from the very small to the extremely large. The smallest bean bag chairs are intended less for use as an actual chair than to accompany a full-sized bean bag chair as an ottoman.

The next size category are children's bean bag chairs, large enough for a small child but too small for most adults. Then come queen-size bean bag chairs, which can comfortably accommodate most adults. Finally, there are king and deluxe-size bean bag chairs, which are so large that most adults will be fully enveloped by them, and large enough to accommodate two or more adults.

How Much Do Bean Bag Chairs Cost?

Bean bag chairs can cost under US$100. Mid-range bean bag chairs cost between US$130 and US$200, depending on size and material. Polyurethane bean bag chairs and designer bean bag chairs with ornate prints can cost upwards of US$300. Visit 1-Bean-Bag-Chairs.com.
