Roundup: Chic Bean Bags



You're probably thinking the phrase "chic bean bags" is an oxymoron, right? Well, considering how far the bean bag industry has come since the days of Lillian Vernon monogramming, I have to disagree. The slouchy seat, in many cases, has abandoned its deflated globe-like shape in favor of cringe-free forms less synonymous with bachelor pad and nine-year-old decorating. Marimekko and Dwell have chimed in with their hip, bold patterns, and Stéphanie Marin cooked up Livingstones, the modern anti-bean bag alternative. No more sticky vinyl to peel your face off of when you wake up to Super Mario Brothers tunes and a fistful of Gushers melting in your hand. Bean bags have done gone and graduated; there's no reason to be ashamed anymore.
