First Impressions:

In life, they say, we must all mature. Progression, I think they call it. Well, we’re pleased to tell you that the beanbag has grown up with us. Gone are the days of plopping into a blob of beans and playing SNES. Instead, say ¡Hola! to Fatboy’s Mètahlowski Beanbag Lounger: the latest and greatest in beanbags.


The adult world can be uncomfortable, what with suits, bills, and minivans, but when you sit on (in?) a Métahlowski beanbag, all those grown-up problems melt away, and what is left is pure adolescent bliss. While not the most “appropriate” addition to an office space, this beanbag is a sure-fire way to liven up the place.


It’s hard to get any “real” work done while sitting in a beanbag, but if your workstation consists of simply a laptop, a beanbag is as good of a place to work as any. The best aspect of a beanbag is its mobility, but that mobility comes at the cost of durability. As with almost all beanbags, they are prone to tears. Anyone who has owned a beanbag will know the mess that is made when it bursts. Other than picking up the beans themselves, this plushy seat is easy to clean because of its PVC-coated nylon fabric.

Why It Matters:

While the Métahlowski beanbag is not the most ideal candidate for office furniture, it can reinforce your office’s culture — or a culture you’re trying to create. Having a beanbag is a staple of a modern office. Go into any Silicon Valley workspace and you’ll probably see one. Conversely, step into a skyscraper over in Manhattan and — guess what? — you’ll see a beanbag. If you’re going to get one, you’re going to say a lot with a little.
