    When I was growing up in my parent's attic, I had a few piece of interesting furniture, including an old bean bag chair. I don't have it any longer, and I'm pretty sure it just fell apart at some point. Recently, I got a new one from www.sumolounge.com -- they're not cheap (around $130, but with free shipping), but they're definitely built to last. It's around 4' x 5' in size, very sturdy, and the material feels very thick. Even when Bently (our dog) jumps and attacks on it, it leaves no mark, much less a tear. The web site says that it's made of "ballistic nylon", which is surprisingly comfortable considering the name. Finally, you can actually form the chair depending on your purpose (using a notebook computer vs sleeping =). Believe it or not, the only thing I'd change is the size -- it's so big that it really becomes the focal point of any room you put it in and can be difficult to store. If it were a little smaller, I'd probably be able to get more use out of it.

    Looks nice. (y) I have a bean bag a bit smaller and like it a lot. I like how you can shape them however you want. :)

    Cute-looking dog. :)

    Have someone resize it for you. Take some of the stuffing out and sew it back up. Gotta be a way.

    When they were in style, my wife made a few of them, they're actually pretty simple. You pick the shape you want, and sew them up. We made them out of a heavy coarse canvas material, it was pretty bulletproof and lasted well for years.

    The "beans" are actually hard Styrofoam balls, and they're commercially available, at least they were when we did ours. I gave them all away years ago, but I'm sure the materials are still available to "roll your own".
