Every few months, I'll notice a designer's new take on the bean bag chair as I scour the latest web offerings or thumb through the newest shelter mag. Whether it's switching out the vinyl wrapping for a lux new fabric or altering the shape from a lumpy mound into a low, sleek recliner, the bean bag just won't go away.
And while they may conjure up memories of grooving out to the latest 8-track on a shag rug or of uncomfortable nights trying to study in the college dorm, check out the latest and greatest examples of this beloved icon and let us know if you're ready to embrace the redesigned classic.
