Get cozy in one of these comfortable options.

Beanbags aren't just for college dorm rooms or children's playrooms anymore — they're a cozy and functional seating option for any space, for adults and kids alike.

"Beanbag chairs are fun, affordable seating that can be thrown anywhere, which is so fun!" Interior designer Ellen Fleckenstein tells Shop TODAY via email. The chairs have evolved beyond the old sacks with beans or beads and have become much more stylish, with velvet upholstering and even Sherpa material.

What to look for in a beanbag chair

"Leather beanbag chairs can be a great option for teens or adults — they get better with age as they wear and get a nice patina," Fleckenstein says. Plus, they're easy to wipe down, should there be a spill she adds.

Interior designer Kristy Kay prefers a washable, removable cover. "This ensures the beanbag stays in great shape regardless of the activity be it sitting or snacking, and unscathed from the inevitable kids art project or movie night," she tells us via email.

Filled with memory foam and available in more structured forms, you can also find more supportive options than the ones you had as a kid.

What type of beanbag chair is comfortable?

"I tend to stay away from the beanbag chairs that are filled with polystyrene beads. They are a huge mess when you need to refill, and you need to refill periodically," Fleckenstein says. "Foam beanbag chairs are a little pricier but worth every penny."

When it comes down to the specifics of size and materials, you'll want to double-check your measurements and consider whether you're going to move the beanbag around the house, Kay advises.

"If it's a child's playroom, I like a smaller scale beanbag that offers some support as a reading chair, for example," Kay says. "If it's extra seating in a main living space, I prefer more of a flexible shape that offers a comfy perch depending on the occasion."

Some of these chairs can even span across seasons, functioning as both indoor and outdoor furniture.

"We love our two outdoor beanbags and here's why: They're light and moveable," Kay says. "Be it a sunny day to snooze out on the grass or we throw them in the truck, and off to the beach they go for a picnic. A quick hose down after the fun, and they're back in business."

Below we found 19 beanbag chairs for both adults and kids that are worth adding to your cart. From ones that look like actual chairs to more classic options, we have all kinds of seating options that will fit seamlessly with your style and budget.
