Right off the bat, let’s get something straight. This is not a beanbag chair… like the kind you remember from your childhood. It isn’t filled with those crappy little pellets that get all over everything. It has some sort of shredded foam. As for the ‘chair’ nomenclature, it isn’t quite that either. It can be a multiperson seating piece. It can be a giant pillow. It can be a bed. I shall call this “Amorphous Furniture”!
Oh, it is big. Really big. I put a bottle of Fernet in the photo for scale.
The cover is way better than it appears on the site… and it looks pretty nice on the site.
I have a mezzanine in my apartment with very low ceilings, so I figured this would be great to help make use of that space. Regular furniture just doesn’t fit. Amorphous Furniture does fit! (once you figure out how to get it up there)
There is a downside to Amorphous Furniture. It doesn’t have a form. Once you sit in a comfortable position, you have about 15 minutes before it becomes a form that is less comfortable. Maintaining a mostly upright position gives you a core workout.
Let’s say you would like a nice glass of Fernet. You can’t put this close to a side table. It is Amorphous and will eat your table eventually. You can’t put the Fernet on the floor… for long.
Hanging out with friends and chatting? Well, staying upright for any length of time is rough. I put this up against a wall and put a pillow there for some support. It seems to work pretty well. Hanging out with one very close friend and looking to ignore a movie? Total win!
I’ve invented another use. I sleep under it. It is like a 42 pound blanket. Which is unwieldy… and awesome.
