Fatboy Bean Bags & Furniture
The Fatboy Story
The bean bag. The Italians invented it; the Dutch improved it. In 1988, Dutch designer Jukka Setala came up with an ingenious way to make the bean bag chair much more luxurious, durable and adaptable than its Italian ancestor. Alex Bergman then took up the modern bean bag "mantle" in 2002, adopting Setala's idea of the modern lounge chair by launching "Fatboy the Original."
Three years after that, Fatboy opened their USA branch in Texas (Fatboy USA) and has since expanded on the lounging experience to include other modern furniture pieces like pet beds, chairs for kids and even picnic mats and wine coolers.
Why We Love Fatboy Bean Bag Chairs
We all loved jumping onto a bean bag to watch our favorite movie or to take in the newest Zeppelin album. But let's face it, the '70s are over and unfortunately the bean bag era has, shall we say, deflated? Until now. Fatboy has reintroduced the idea as a luxury lounge chair, filled with the same material as the bean bag but featuring durable nylon in a variety of chic colors and patterns, including fabulous metals, pure white and camouflage, to complement any decor. They've got a range of modern accessories and pet beds that are just as cool, too. Plus, the polystyrene filling is 100% recyclable! LOVE!
