Bean bags have come a long way from the 70s! Today, bean bags have morphed into sought after, high-design pieces used in trendy homes and offices all over the world. What’s not to love about them? They’re comfy, stylish and can be used in a million different positions. But can they really be practical in a professional office setting? We say DEFINITELY! In fact, we’ll be ordering one soon. Here’s why.
We came up with seven different ways you can use bean bags in your office. Check ’em out.
1. The producer
If using a bean bag as your office chair is a big departure for you, this one may do the trick. The Solo Bean Bag has a high back to support long hours in front of the computer, but it looks super comfy as well. This bean bag can be used at your office desk, in a roundtable discussion and in the conference room.
2. The brainstormer
This is the perfect addition to any meeting room. Forget the stuffy conference room chairs, the Big Joe Roma Bean Bag is a great alternative that will surely get the creative juices flowing.
3. The entertainer
Don’t let your visitors suffer in an outdated office chair with bad upholstery and worn out padding! Let them in on the bean bag secret. The Big Maxx Bean Bag is everything you love about the classic bean bag chair, but offers added support in the form of a backrest for the bean bag novice. Bonus: This bean bag chair offers additional storage for an MP3 player, iPod and magazines.
4. The stylish lounger
Whoever said bean bags are not high-design? The Fatboy Marimekko Unikko Original Bean Bag is not only extra comfy, it’s also got a dose of contemporary style that will add a punch of color to any drab office space. You will be the envy of all.
5. The energy booster
Need a little pick-me-up in the afternoon? The Coffee Fellow Bean Bag is sure to do the trick! Designed by Johanna Hansson, this bean bag chair is actually made out of recycled coffee bean sacks. You may not even need to drink a cup of joe…the coffee bean aroma may give you all the energy you need!
6. The total slacker
There’s always at least one in the office, so why not give them the proper space to do the slacking? The Cocoon Bean Bag looks like the place to be for some R & R after a long day’s work (or maybe a mid-afternoon catnap).
7. The researcher
Why spend hours reviewing information in an upright position at a boring desk? The PillowSaxx Bean Bag is great for some adult belly time! That’s right, belly time is not just for babies. Grab your laptop, get on your belly and get to work.
