While you might normally think of a bean bag as something that you'd find in a dorm room or a child's bedroom, they're actually a pretty versatile piece of furniture.

The chair can make a comfortable lounging spot for adults, little ones and pets alike. Most of them are pretty easy to move, meaning they can be placed in a sunny spot in the living room to read on and then moved outdoors later for a backyard movie night. Not to mention, the chairs have evolved through the years and expand far beyond just seats filled with beans or beads. You can now find options that are far more stylish and supportive (like with memory foam fill) than the one you had as a kid.

With that in mind, we found 11 bean bag chairs that are worth adding to your cart, from ones that look like actual chairs to more classic options.

It also has an average 4.3-star rating from more than 12,000 reviews.
