[ I love fatboys ]

SINCE OUR new sofa is on order and it will still be weeks before it arrives (as well as our sea shipment on a slow boat somewhere), we needed to find a solution for seating for when we move in until we get our stuff! So we decided to look for something for the balcony that can be used temporarily in the living room. We don't want a table and chairs for outside, we want something to lounge on, read a book ipad on. Well, you would think that in a land of endless sunshine, great patio stuff would be easy to find. Not the case.

[no, not me!]

After what seems like a never-ending search all over the city, we've found our solution! Fatboy beanbags! I know, super retro. But the 'buggle-up' style with the big toggle straps on the sides is brilliant - it allows you to create more of a chair-like shape and with its durable indoor/outdoor fabric and polystyrene microbeads, it will be perfect for the balcony later (when things cool down out there!). We've ordered 2 in this sand colour and I think it will be the perfect thing to keep us comfy until our sofa arrives.

Fatboy has great stuff...we have a Fatboy pouf that I love!

Brilliant solution - and oh so comfortable that you may end up spending more time on them than the sofa when it finally arrives.

Love them, perfect solution and cool too! Hope they arrive quickly!

I agree with Blue Fruit! I've sat on one before and they are super comfortable. How are you? Now that i'm on summer break from work, i can read all the blogs that i've been missing out on:-). Happy Summer to you! XX

I love Fatboys, too! Saw them at a trade show a few years ago. They really are a more sophisticated beanbag -- comfy, but not too sloppy and with some great fabric options.

Can't believe you posted about Fatboys! I was first introduced to them a few years ago on a trip I took for work to Denmark to a school furniture manufacturing company. They didn't make the Fatboys but I think they were the distributer for them in Denmark. I think they are so cool! We actually have one in our office that we use for a "schools of the future" presentation trying to get schools to think outside the box.
