Ah, beanbag chairs; a child’s dream, an adult’s nightmare. They’re so comfortable and yet so ugly — or at least we used to think. When we did a little research into the current state of beanbag chairs, we were surprised to find that they had evolved considerably from the vinyl monstrosities of my youth. These days, beanbag chairs are less like lumpy sacks of beans and more like plush, comfortable cocoons that beg for an afternoon nap or quick meditation session.

To prove our point, we’ve rounded up nine chic beanbag chairs that you might actually want to have in your house. Forget everything you saw in the ’90s — these beanbag chairs boast surprisingly stylish features, like faux leather fabric, ergonomic arms, and even channel tufting that will allow them to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your furniture. Ready to relax? Let’s get to it.

This ergonomic chair from Amazon sits more like a sofa than a beanbag chair, thanks to a high-density foam filling and roomy width. At 12 inches, it boasts one of the higher sitting heights of chairs on our list, so you won't need to brace yourself while getting up and down from sitting. Choose from four stylish hues, including blue, khaki, white, and brown.

Urban Outfitters

Leave it to Urban Outfitters to make a totally chic beanbag chair. We wouldn't mind styling this sculptural piece into the corner of our living room or office, especially considering it's available in a trio of of-the-moment hues (mustard, cream, and dusty blue). The boxy silhouette and firm polyester fabric help it maintain its shape, while an overstuffed bean fill keeps things comfy.

If your favorite armchair and a beanbag had a baby, this beauty from Target would be it. With more structure than is typically seen in a beanbag chair — and a pair of supportive arms! — this cozy perch allows for comfortable lounging without the worry that you'll never be able to stand up from your seat. It's filled with soft but supportive foam and covered in plush faux fur for the perfect place to finish your TBR pile.

Oversized and budget-friendly, this Walmart beanbag chair is the ideal addition to a dorm room, first apartment, or any space where flexible seating is a plus. It's shaped like an egg chair, with a deep seat and channel-tufted back that keeps sitters comfortably upright. It also boasts a handle at the top, so toting it from room to room is a cinch.

Upon first glance, the triangle shape of this beanbag chair is just odd — but trust us that it totally works. The narrow shape is well-suited to smaller rooms (like a teen's bedroom or dorm room) and the peak of the triangle offers up the back and neck support that's often missing in most beanbag chairs. Translation: Whether you're using this as a gaming chair or just a spot to scroll through social, you won't wake up sore the next day.

One look at the name "Moon Pod" and you know you're in for something a bit futuristic. This next-gen take on the beanbag is uniquely engineered to support any body type, with a high-density bean filling that will never flatten or compress. Even better, it's meant to mimic the effects of float therapy, which can help with symptoms of anxiety or stress.

Cloud-like would be an apt way to describe this beanbag chair from Amazon. The nubby sherpa fabric that covers the exterior feels like a warm hug and allows you to lounge comfortably without even grabbing a blanket. The high-density memory foam filling provides ample support to your back and hips, while the nonslip fabric on the bottom means you won't slip and slide while you sit.

West Elm

This West Elm chair is one of the pricier picks on our list, but the quality speaks for itself. Made from a durable mix of cotton and jute, it can handle jumping, wrestling, pets, and any other number of encounters. The unique egg shape provides lots of back support and the pretty colors complement any playroom, office, or bedroom perfectly.

PB Teen

Leather may not be the first material you imagine when you think of a beanbag chair, but this PB Teen chair makes it a (very comfortable) reality. With a blocky square shape and firm filling, this perch is just a tad masculine, making it the perfect textural touch in any room. Even better, it comes in two different sizes, so you can cater your pick to your available space.
