About the Manufacturer

Comfort Research has applied all of their creative talents to bring new and innovative colors, fabrics and products to their lineup.

They have introduced a new line of Bean Bags, filled with traditional polystyrene bean bag filler. Included in the Bean Bag Collection are innovative pear shaped bags; Club Chairs with a back, arms and ottoman; and the Puck, which provides for easy stackability and multiple seating positions. They have also added microfiber faux suede as an available fabric, giving their chairs a more sophisticated look and feel while remaining extremely durable. New patterned fabrics have also been added to the mix, lending a hip retro look to their products.

At first glance a Foof Chair would appear to be a beanbag, but don't be fooled! Just experience Comfort Research's patented urethane foam filled Foof Chairs and you will be certain of the difference. The secret is inside the chair. The patented urethane foam filling engulfs one in a soothing cushion of foam. This soft, long lasting material does not break down over time like a traditional bean bag and their chairs are vacuum packed to approximately 1/3 of their original size for convenient UPS shipping and storage. They offer a wide range of fabrics for th eir chairs including twills, denim, velvets, brushed twills and microfiber faux suede. All of this adds up to create "The most comfortable chair on earth...maybe even the Universe."

Love this chair

Debbie from HARPER WOODS, MI– Verified Buyer

I love this chair. It is so versatile because you can shape it and change it's shape and position. It makes a great chair to sit and watch tv or do homework. You can also use it as a large floor pillow. I bought this for my kids, but it is comfortable enough for me to sit in (I am 5'5"). The fabric is durable and seems easy to clean.

love it!

Madeleine from AUSTIN, TX– Verified Buyer

This bean bag is a great seat option in my studio apartment. It's very light and portable, so it's ideal for my small space. I was surprised at how comfortable it was. It's firm once you're on it, but I like the support. So if firm isn't your thing, you may want to keep shopping. I like using it as a chair or to lie down on. I couldn't be happier with its versatility and durability!

Ordered 2: One was perfect; the other was flat

Sarah from Norwich, CT– Verified Buyer

Got these for my kids for Christmas; they love them! My only complaint is that one of them had significantly less fill than the others, so when my daughter laid or sat on it, she had no cushioning...but an email to the company took care of that issue so we are happy. Two of my three kids have slept on theirs every night!

Versatile bean bag

Leah from Gaithersburg, MD– Verified Buyer

My 10 year old son really loves this bean bag chair. It can be configured into a number of different seating options which is also neat. And best of all, it does not stick to the back of your thighs in hot weather like the vinyl bean bag chairs of old!

A lot of fun

lisa from Northport, NY– Verified Buyer

Got these for three kids ages 6-9. Each kid got their own, and it was a good thing I got one for each. They love them it this is all they sit on. I think they would go to sleep on these each night if the could. A heads up, they are BIG.

Big Joe's Chair is Just What I Ordered

Tammy from Trussville, AL– Verified Buyer

I ordered this chair for my daughter's dorm room and she is thrilled with it. She can use it as a chair or a giant pillow. The color is exactly the same as the picture and the shell is made of a durable, but not scratchy material.

Pillow smart

Robert from Los Angeles, CA– Verified Buyer– Top 50 Reviewer

These are great. Easy to keep a few stacked aside for extra space when people are over. Can put out for movie watching or just propping up to hang out. We have four over by the fire place and they get used all the time. Easy to clean and great colors!

My 7 year old love it but. . .

Sharon from Pennington, NJ– Verified Buyer

The product certainly matched the description but somehow in the picture it looks soft and cushy. It's not. The material on the outside is certainly durable but lacks any sort of touchability. It almost feels like tent material but stronger, or like a college dorm dish chair . Maybe if it had a (huge) pillow case with softer materials to choose from, like microfiber or something that would be better. Also I guess I had it in my mind that it was filled the foam bits like in another chair I was considering, like memory foam bits which feel heavenly soft and cushy. The filling in this makes it look soft, but honestly a doggie bed would be more comfy.

Great product! My son loves it!!

Laura from Freehold, NJ– Verified Buyer

Great quality!! I thought it would be too big, but it is light enough to move from room to room. This product seems much better than a typical bean bag chair!

Great, fast purchase

Marsha from Chandler, AZ– Verified Buyer

I ordered three of these and they all came the same day and were exactly what I expected. Great purchase for the price.
