You're probably thinking the phrase "chic bean bags" is an oxymoron, right? Well, considering how far the bean bag industry has come since the days of Lillian Vernon monogramming, I have to disagree. The slouchy seat, in many cases, has abandoned its deflated globe-like shape in favor of cringe-free forms less synonymous with bachelor pad and nine-year-old decorating. Marimekko and Dwell have chimed in with their hip, bold patterns, and Stéphanie Marin cooked up Livingstones, the modern anti-bean bag alternative. No more sticky vinyl to peel your face off of when you wake up to Super Mario Brothers tunes and a fistful of Gushers melting in your hand. Bean bags have done gone and graduated; there's no reason to be ashamed anymore.
