Bean Bag Chairs: Timeless or Passé?

Bean Bag Chairs: Timeless or Passé?

When I was a kid, the bean bag chair was de rigueur in the rooms of all of my friends. I was reminiscing about these poufy wonders, and it made me think: is the bean bag chair timeless or totally passé?

There are plenty of bean bag options on the market, some much improved from the vinyl ones I remember from my youth. I certainly would have loved, for example, the faux fur bag from PB Teen.

As parents, do you think bean bag chairs are a substantial design choice? Or do you think of them only as a practical piece that you'll have to live with?
