FatBoy be warned:

Eazy Bean, Francoise Sejourne's San Francisco-based company has been making sustainably-constructed bean bag furniture for more than ten years, and she was showing some new nature-inspired colors, finishes and shapes (pictured just below) at this year's ICFF.

Bean Bags are simple furniture and need to be pleasingly tactile if they are to seduce anyone who's not already low-to-the-ground. So the choice of materials is key and we'd say Eazy Bean's tech suede covers get high marks in this category. The soft, machine-washable covers are made from mostly post-consumer product. And the beans themselves, which are manufactured entirely in the US and fulfilled by Goodwill Industries, are made from EPS foam, which is CFC-free and recyclable. One of the new bags on display, the hockey puck-shaped bag in the middle picture, actually had a raffia-based textile cover that was surprisingly pliable and soft.

We know this for a fact because this is where we finally took a break from the hard convention center floor and sat down.
