Good Bean Fun

www.leichic.comArriving home after a long workday, you like to plant yourself in a lounge position and stay there. Some may call you lazy (so what?), but you prefer another moniker: Relaxation Practitioner.

If you’re going to claim expert status, then you need the newest and best tools of the trade. So forget the Lazy-Boy and sink into a Fatboy, the millennial version of the bean bag chair, modernized by a hip Finnish designer. These mobile bags are made from water- and stain-resistant fabric filled with polystyrene beads that blissfully conform to the contours of every body, whether human or beast. All you have to do is clean them with lukewarm water and soap, or machine-wash the removable pet lounger outer-bags.

Celebrated for contemporary style, knock out colors (think silver, camouflage, red, turquoise, and more), and versatility, Fatboys come in a range of sizes and designs, like a junior for kids,  doggielounge and catbag for furry friends, a ‘point’ for feet, or a vibrant Marimekko design for you—to sit, lounge and lay back on whenever and wherever the urge appears.

So you can still rest easy while honing your skills. Before you know it, you’ll be a relaxation master.

Fatboy is available at  The Honolulu Design Center , 1250 Kapiolani Blvd., Third Floor, 808.956.1250.
