The humble bean bag is arguably the most democratic of seating. First created in the late 1960s during the Italian Modernism movement by three Italian designers, Piero Gatti, Cesare Paolini, and Franco Teodoro, the original ‘Sacco’ beanbag chair was made from leather and filled with styrofoam pellets. The beanbag chair rose to mass popularity in the 1970s for their broad accessibility, representing a modern future post-WWII. But beanbags have come a long way since 1969!
Outdoor furniture design company Lujo has reinvented the bag – literally. Their new range of premium beanbag furnishings, ‘Indoor X Out’, has been designed for both indoor and outdoor use. Available in a range of contemporary colours (think Honey, Sage, Cactus and Clay), they’re luxe enough for your living room, and robust enough for the garden.
Sitting alongside Lujo’s contemporary collections of outdoor furniture designed to get the most out of your downtime, this seven-piece collection includes chairs, loungers, footstools, pouffes, ottomans and an extra-large beanbag. The range prioritises comfort and durability without compromising on aesthetics – they’ll even send you free colour swatches so you can peruse the entire palette to ensure your new purchase fits perfectly into your existing space.
Available exclusively online, starting from $545 with free shipping and a 5-Year Exterior Warranty. Visit www.lujo.com.au or call 1300 145 190 for more information
