Bean Bag Beds
Can you sleep on a bean bag chair?
Of course. But you want to select a quality "bean bag." Xorbees are not bean bags, they are foam-filled loungers and rounds made from the best foam reclaimed from furniture like your couch or recliner.
Some people find a foam filled "bean bag" style chair to be preferable for sleeping. They provide consistent, soft-but-firm springy comfort for a great night's rest.
When we show our Xorbees at trade shows we usually have to wake up a few folks who are so comfortable that their eyes shut as they drift off into sleepy land.
Can I replace my bed with a bean bag?
You definitely can. More and more people are doing just that.
Features and Benefits of sleeping on a bean bag
Never too firm or too soft. Wraps around your body for full support.
Easily wash your cover.
Easily move your bed into any room or take it on the road.
You won't need a pillow because a bean bag chair allows you to put your head wherever you want comfortably. Sleep in almost any position: flat, seated, draped, however your body needs to get zzzzzzzzz's.
Your foam-filled Xorbee can be a chair or lounger and a bed. Sleep on it at night, then use it for a comfy office perch or "recliner" during the day. You don't need a "bedroom" any more - you instantly create more living and working space in your home.
Why do you need a mattress?
Of course the mattress companies want you to buy a bed, box spring, mattress, and so on. They want you to buy into the entire system. There's nothing wrong with having a bed, but you don't have to sleep on a traditional bed.
Disadvantages of a bed and mattress
- Takes up a lot of space
- High maintenance (have to wash sheets, mattresses, etc.)
- Difficult to move
- Requires accessories (sheets, pillows, pads, headboard, frame, etc.)
- Expensive (average family spends $1,860 on beds for their family)
- Odors (beds can trap odors for a long time)
