Frequently Asked Questions about Xorbee Foam-Filled furniture.

How do Xorbee's differ from other foam-filled and bean bag furniture on the market?

Xorbee is one of the few companies who manufactures our foam-filled furniture from start to finish. We create your Xorbee in our facility in beautiful Muskegon, Michigan.

Most of our competition are resellers or they use materials that are made in China. Xorbee’s are 100% Made in the Good Ol’ USA. Because Xorbees are manufactured in America in our own facility, we have control over every aspect of the manufacturing process.

Xorbee’s are filled with superior foam and better quality fabrics than any other foam bag chair company on the market. Our foam is softer and more comfortable than other companies because we use premium furniture grade foam. Also, we're finicky: we sort out the foam that is no good and send it back. We never allow packaging foam or football pad foam anywhere near your Xorbee.

Some people ask us how we're different than Lovesac, a competitor who also uses furniture grade foam in their products. Our products are superior, made in the USA, and we have a better warranty. And most importantly to your wallet, despite being better furniture, Xorbees are more affordable than Lovesacs.

We've been doing business in the foam industry for more than three decades which allows us to leverage this knowledge and get the best foam available for a good price from our furniture foam partners. As a result we provide the highest quality foam-filled furniture on the market while keeping our prices competitive.

Xorbee covers are also the top on the market and they set us apart from our competitors. We rely on a large selection of fabrics and we've also worked with companies and individuals to create Xorbee’s with special ordered fabrics.

At Xorbee, we're passionate about providing the best products and best customer service on the market, and we mean it. If you are not 100% satisfied with the entire process and product we will make it right.

Xorbee is successful because of the thousands who are now Xorbites and love Xorbee as much as we do. Your Xorbee Xperience is what makes the difference.

I don't follow directions very well. How difficult is it to unpack my new furniture?

You're in luck! It's very easy to welcome a new Xorbee into your home or church.

What will I receive from you when I order my Xorbee?

When you order a Xorbee you become a part of the Xorbee family. We create each Xorbee by hand-selecting the best foam, 

Can I wash my Xorbee?

Xorbee Twill and Xorbee Micro Suede covers are removable and machine washable. Another great feature you will get with every Xorbee is an internal liner. While some competitors cut costs and don't include a liner and others offer it as an expensive option, all Xorbee’s come with an inner liner that contains our Shredded Furniture Foam. The Xorbee liner enables you to simply unzip the outer cover and put the cover in the washing machine. The important thing when washing your cover is to make sure you completely re-zip the cover closed before putting it into the washing machine. This is to ensure nothing gets caught in the washing machine which could result in damage to your cover. It is recommended that you air dry the covers, however they can also be put in the dryer and tumble dried on low.

How long will it take for my Xorbee to arrive?

Most Xorbee’s are shipped in 3-5 business days, however it sometimes takes up to 8 business days to ship the orders out. Depending on your location, it will take 2-5 business days in transit with UPS Ground to your location. You can expect your order to be delivered in 5-10 business days after placing your order depending on your location.

All Xorbees are handmade when ordered, we take craftsmanship seriously, which is why Xorbees are shipped only after they've met our relaxation expectations.

Most of our competitors either don't offer extra covers or they make you go through a difficult and costly process to get one. We want your Xorbee to be like a chameleon: let it change with the seasons or for your needs. 

What is the difference between a Round and a Lounger?

The only difference between the Round and the Lounger is the shape of the product. The Round is like a hamburger and the Lounger is in the shape of a hotdog*. 

When deciding between the Lounger and Round please remember that all of our products use the same foam and fabrics.

*Even if you're tempted, please do not put mustard or ketchup on them. Relish maybe, but never mustard or ketchup.

Consult our Xorbee Size Chart to see the differences in sizes for Rounds and Loungers.

How can I best use a Round or a Lounger?

A Xorbee Lounger is perfect for someone who wants to use the product more like a couch. You can sit on the product or lay on the product lengthwise like a lounger. The most popular Loungers are the 7-Foot Xhilerate Lounger and the 8-Foot Xotic Lounger.

The Xorbee Round is the choice for someone looking for the most comfortable seat in the house. The Round creates the perfect place to flop after a long day. Its round shape creates a comfortable bean-bag-like chair that you sink into for ultimate comfort. Our customer favorite is the 4-Foot Xplorer which is also our flagship product.

Dimensions are measured at the widest point of the Xorbee and weights are within a few pounds. The floor print of each Xorbee is slightly smaller because of the shape. Xorbee’s are frameless furniture which means there are not rigid corners for dimensions. Xorbee sizes exceed the industry standard for foam bag chairs and we give you measurements to ensure you don't purchase a product that will not fit into a space that is too small for it.

For shipping and handling reasons all Xorbee’s must be highly compressed before shipment. For best results make sure to take your Xorbee out of its compressed box when it arrives. Xorbees can sit for a couple months in its compressed form however it will take longer to expand back to its original size with each month of storage.

Does my Xorbee need time to expand?

For shipping and handling reasons all Xorbee’s must be highly compressed before shipment. For best results make sure to take your Xorbee out of its compressed box when it arrives. Xorbees can sit for a couple months in its compressed form however it will take longer to expand back to its original size with each month of storage.

It will take 5-7 days after your receive your Xorbee for the product to FULLY expand. Feel free to use your Xorbee while it is still expanding but realize that the foam must get air back into all the pieces to fully expand.

To speed the process of your bag fully expanding, re-fluff your Xorbee a couple times a day in the first week to get air into the foam. This will ONLY need to be done for the first week or two because of how compact the foam is for shipping purposes. Also ensure that all large pieces of foam are broken apart which will also speed up the expansion process.

The Unpack Video explains how to unpack your Xorbee, how to fluff it, and how it will expand.

I like to play video games. Which Xorbee is best for me?

The 5-Foot Xorbee Xecutive was created specifically for video game fanatics. In fact, it's original name was the Xorbee Gamer. It's comfy enough to make you feel like you're floating while you play Minecraft, Mario Bros., or World of Warcraft.

The Xecutive is perfect for one adult or two children, so if your kids are planning an epic head-to-head game of Pacman, the Gamer is the way to go.

My kid is living in a dorm, which Xorbee chair is most appropriate?

We sell a lot of Xorbees to parents outfitting a room for their kids as they go off to college. We designed the 4-Foot Xorbee Xplorer for that purpose because it's the right size for dorm rooms. Your student can plop it down in the corner or even take it with them to the study hall, it's that easy to move around. But be warned: the 4-Foot Xorbee Xplorer will cause envy among their college pals.

We also offer licensed college Xorbees, which make a perfect piece of furniture for your kids when you send them off to university.

Why are they called Xorbee?

Why not? Xorbee (pronounced zorbee) is a way of life: rest, recharge, relax. Once you get a Xorbee, you become a Xorbite. Doesn't that sound special? It is.

How many Xorbees do I need for my youth group room?

Check out our page titled "Which Xorbee is right for me?" to help with that question. Or visit the "Choose the Right Xorbee" visual chart.

What size Xorbee is best for a classroom?

Depends on the size of your classroom and how many children you want to enjoy the Xorbee. Check out our page titled "Which Xorbee is right for me?" to help with that question.

What sort of warranty does my Xorbee have?

Each Xorbee comes with a LIFETIME warranty on all seams and zippers on both the cover and liner.

This is the best warranty offered in the foam bag chair industry. Some companies offer something they call a 'limited lifetime warranty' which requires that you have all the original packaging and register your product with them to qualify. Other companies use gimmicks such as 'two or three lifetime' warranties which sound kind of cool but when you break them down, they don't make a lot of sense.

We stand behind our products and often we have customers that purchase a liner or cover from our company because our competitor will not uphold their warranty.

Our customers can be confident that if something happens to their Xorbee we will stand behind our product. Xorbee’s are designed to last a very long time and handle a Xorbee size beating.

With Quality that stands above all competition, Xorbee is proud to stand behind our products FOR LIFE. We know this is an investment and we want you to be confident you are buying the best foam furniture on the market… PERIOD.
