    Looks pretty comfy to me, but maybe not practical for studying. :p

    I've had similar things growing up. Big bean bags basically. They can be comfy.

    My, my, my...the venerable "bean bag chair." I had one about 15 years before you were born dear lady. They're pretty comfortable when you're a young'n but are the devil to get out of as one gets older, wider, and creakier.

    I enjoyed my video rocker more.

    What an apt description, Peter :biggrin:

    I feel I would not do well in a bean bag chair these days any more.
    They are comfy, though. Fun to sit in and relax ... hang on, you said "study"!?!?!? :shock: :er: Well, then. Try.

    Looks like a modified beanbag chair! Very popular in the US during the 70’s! My sister purchased a complete living room set comprised of these things, including a sofa. Very comfy but incredibly awkward to get out of, particularly after a few glasses of ones favorite alcoholic beverage.:wink:

    They also create quite the mess should they spring a leak… Those tiny foam beads develop a static charge, and stick to anything and everything!

    I'd go for it. The reason I say "not practical for studying" is cuz I always find myself readjusting myself in those! Like I can stay on top of it! So if I am holding a book and reading and trying to keep myself upright! Screams disaster. :D
