Kitting out your startup office? Bean bag chairs can help with everything from improving productivity to posture!

pexels-karolina-grabowska-6632369Although when you think bean bag chairs you may be cast back to the 90s, bean bag chairs are coming back. In the last few years, bean bag chairs have been on the rise and for good reason. Not only are bean bags becoming more fashionable but they offer a whole host of advantages, everything from your productivity to improving your posture.

A bean bag can have many uses for many different people, some will use a bean bag as a flexible seating option for when they have extra people around. Others love to spend hours in bean bag chairs doing their favourite thing, be that reading, watching a film or listening to music. 

Whatever you enjoy doing, bean bag chairs can offer a superior level of support and comfort while you're doing it. The free form nature of a bean bag means that it can offer support wherever it's needed and then it can move with you to accommodate your body.

Who is buying bean bag chairs?

Bean bag chairs are so versatile and multi-purpose that it's really hard to say who uses a bean bag. They're great for those who have a low budget, those who love watching movies and so many other types of people. However, a big group of people who are embracing bean bag chairs are gamers. Bean bag chairs are fantastic for those who love to game because they offer such fantastic support and comfort while gaming. 

Unlike a more traditional chair, a bean bag can keep you supported and comfortable for hours on end so you'll never have to worry about taking a break to stretch your legs. 

Hugo Anglesford of Fintech startup Doddler comments: “Different businesses and startups are all embracing a more flexible approach to working, which includes types of seating as well as dress codes. Gone are the days of a suit and tie and nothing else. Nowadays, a meeting with the CEO may be outside, on a walk or in a beanbag, rather than in an old fashioned office. Bean bags can also be incredibly comfortable and thus, help with productivity.”

Why have bean bags become so popular?

Bean bags have become more popular than ever and the reason is simple; they have so many advantages. 

Samuel Davies of Kallyss explains: “You will be hard pressed to find an office of a startup business or indeed an established business, outside of the corporate sphere that just ‘doesn’t fit the mould’ when it comes to how their office is set up. Standing desks, beanbags and break out rooms are more commonplace than not and employee wellbeing is rightly at the forefront of a company’s objectives when setting up any office space.”

  • Lots of options – A bean bag can come in many sizes to fit the user as well as having different colours to suit a room's décor. On top of this they can come in easy to clean leather covers, or covers that can easily be removed and washed.
  • Improved productivity - Studies have shown that ergonomic seating can boost productivity and improve focus, and a bean bag can offer the same advantages.
  • Multipurpose - Investing in an ergonomic chair for console gaming is great for gaming, no question, but it can also be a great choice for other areas of your life. Whether you need to work from home or want to watch a movie at your desk, an ergonomic chair can make many experiences more comfortable and enjoyable.
  • Cost – For many good quality chairs prices can go up to and beyond £100, whereas the bean bag alternative can be found for as low as £30.
  • Improved support – For people that already have back issues such as scoliosis, a bean bag chair is a much more comfortable option. The chair distributes body weight evenly across both of the sides, reducing the pressure points in the back. On top of this the bean bag conforms to support the entire spine as well as the neck.
  • Maximum comfort - Being more comfortable and relaxed is a big advantage to bean bag chairs. A good, comfortable bean bag chair can make whatever you are doing a  pleasurable experience.
