There’s nothing better than falling into a giant squishy cushion; Kiwis have loved outdoor beanbags since the dawning of the Chilly-bin era. Perhaps Beanbags have historically been snubbed by designers as ‘not a stylish addition’ or something that only your kids want. In recent years, Hub design have listened and taken on board our client’s desire for an easy, comfortable and (get this) cool Beanbag option.
Queenstown weather tried and tested
Here in Queenstown we have frosty (or snowy) winters and blazing hot summers, so it’s no surprise that an ourdoor Beanbag needs to be durable and weatherproof; not only does the fabric have to be of the highest standard but also the, often overlooked, filler.
Two of our favourite companies bringing fresh designs and high-quality Bean-bag options are Weave and Coast.
Weave offer a funky design for their New Zealand made outdoor Beanbags; think of a giant floor cushion, large enough to lounge around on at 160cm x 130cm and looks awesome! Weave boast the highest-grade outdoor Warwick Sundeck fabrics and Ecobean filler option made from 100% biodegradable plant material. A sustainably sourced alternative to non-biodegradable petroleum-based foam such as polystyrene.
Colours range from dreamy blues to warm naturals and one particularly nice detail is the 5cm hem. We have these in our design studio, and they need to be snapped up before Carmen takes them home for herself!
Coast New Zealand offer a wonderful range of Beanbag shapes and styles, including chair-shaped beanbags and matching ottomans; an entire lounge suite can be created entirely out of these ergonomic beanbags. We have used these extensively on our projects around Queenstown and can vouch for their durability and hardiness against our harsh conditions. Another handy feature for this company is they offer bespoke made beanbags, giving us the ability to alter shapes and styles to fit any type of space, how brilliant is that?
