When I get back to my room after a long day, I just want to lounge–not necessarily on my bed, but not on a rigid desk chair either.  Also, there’s just not nearly enough room in my single for a futon.  The elongated bean bag chair is the obvious solution.  Do I want to do my homework in comfortable environment? My bean bag has me covered.  Do I want to take a quick nap without messing up my made bed? My bean bag has me covered.  Does my little sister who is visiting need a place to sleep for the night?  My bean bag has me covered.  It is by far the most versatile piece of “furniture” I have ever owned, and I honestly don’t know what I would do (and where I would sit) without it.
