After much research, I offer you in this selection a series of models that you would be likely to appreciate both for their comfort, their material, their maintenance, their color or their design. I personally have a little crush on the Lounge Pug beanbag for its manufacturing quality and its aesthetic appearance. Difficult to resist its soft velvet!
The best cheap pear beanbags
You want to install a beanbag in your house or in your garden but you do not want to exceed a certain budget? Here are some ideal models at affordable prices! The beanbag of your dreams may be hiding there!
Calinuit : the best cheap
Calinuit is a French manufacturer of beanbags, pillows, cushions, mattresses, sunbeds and covers. They manufacture and sell textile products for indoor and outdoor equipment.
Your little wolves can sit comfortably on their armchair without it deforming over time. Ideal to install in a reading corner, a games room or even a child’s room! The polystyrene beads that are housed inside are of good quality and are also quite resistant.
Calinuit mainly offers children’s models from € 20. These are rather inexpensive seats which, in addition to being covered by a quality fabric, are both fun and comfortable!
The colors are nice (but beware, they do not always correspond to the photos!). A small accessory (like a small plane for example) crowns the seat of certain models.
Other colors are available such as their pink / red floral model or the 100% cotton Jungle green . The little monkey hanging on the latter will certainly please your toddlers!
You can easily transport your pouffe thanks to its featherweight of 998 g. In addition, the cover can be removed for washing, so don’t worry if your little spirals get it dirty!
If it turns out that your small pets are squatting or appropriating your child’s seat, do not panic, you can remove the hair quite easily.
If you envy your child’s chair yourself, you can also sit in it, but don’t be too big! And don’t expect your back to be well supported either …
Fortunately, Calinuit also offers models for adults like their Olive Green model .
Calinuit poufs are made of cotton, which greatly reduces the risk of allergy. They also have a double zipper system to prevent the balls from escaping (essential if you don’t want to run after watching your beanbag soften!).
The best mid-range pear beanbags
As diverse are the models available, as varied are the prices! You will be able to find for less than 100 € very comfortable pear armchairs that can be used inside and outside!
Bean Bag Bazaar : the best of mid-range
This seat is manufactured by Bean Bag Bazaar, a company specializing in the design of pear beanbags.
Its design and the inclination of the backrest will delight its buyers! Thanks to its 6 sides and its padding of polystyrene beads, it offers optimal comfort.
The models of Bean Bag Bazaar offer varied colors, so you have a wide choice! The model that I present to you in this article is available in 13 colors.
Thanks to its unique color (without patterns), it can easily be integrated into any room in your interior or exterior.
It also has a waterproof Teflon cover, which makes it rather resistant against soiling. A finish with two rows of seams also strengthens its resistance.
The material of its fabric makes the seat waterproof, so you can also use it for lounging on your terrace or in your garden!
It is designed with a circular panel at the top and a circular base at the bottom, which provides a very comfortable curved bucket-shaped seat. Its large seat and rather high backrest make it a perfect seat to relax after a day of work, to read or watch a good movie while having good back support!
A double zipper prevents the balls from spilling. This ottoman being reclining, you will be able to define your posture as you wish!
In terms of maintenance, this model does not stain easily. You can easily clean it as it is made from a soft and durable faux leather. However, it should be noted that the interior lining must be hand washed to preserve its flame retardancy.
The only small regret from users is its dimensions. Indeed, its dimensions may be too small for a person of large build.
i-eX : ideal for gamers!
The i-eX model is particularly well suited to people who want to use a seat frequently! Its back, mainly made of foam, offers you good back support as well as a comfortable posture for several hours!
Video game lovers, this is a seat that could suit you.
This faux leather pouffe is first of all aesthetically well cared for. Part of its padding is made of polystyrene balls. Rather light, it is thus quite easy to transport. In addition, its rigid appearance does not take precedence over its comfortable side.
On the practical side, its faux leather covering allows you to maintain it easily: you can wash it with a few strokes of the cloth.
When you receive the package, you will find a bag of polystyrene beads which will allow you to fill the chair yourself. For convenience, ask another person for help to properly maintain the seat when you pour your balls into it.
The advantage with this seat is that it is suitable for tall people and that it is very bulky according to the users. You will not be at ground level either because the bottom of the chair is about 30 cm high.
Little more: users who ordered this model receive a bonus footrest. A little surprise that is always a pleasure and that can come in handy to lie down comfortably after a day of hard work!
However, some users do not find this seat very comfortable because of the curved bottom of the seat which gives the impression of having a lump in the back.
Some testers also estimate that it would take more marbles to fill it correctly…
The best high end pear beanbags
Pear armchairs also have their sophisticated side! Yes, you will be able to find elegant, durable and good quality models that will easily find their place in a living room, an office or a lounge area…
Lounge Pug : the best high-end
The Lounge Pug brand offers this modern corduroy model for your comfort. Its material, which will make you want to snuggle in, is comfortable because of its soft and raised plush stripes.
The material is also resistant thanks to its structure in tight mesh fabric. The fabric is treated with a stain-resistant coating to facilitate its maintenance, and all the seams are lined to prevent tearing. Durable and resistant to friction, your investment will quickly pay for itself since it does not deteriorate over time!
The Lounge Pug includes a safety zipper to prevent children from accessing the padding. It is in fact composed of small beads which, if they escape, can be ingested by the youngest.
Once comfortably installed in your pouffe, you can adapt its inclination according to your preferences. The pouf measures 115 cm and the optional footrest measures 20 cm in height and 45 cm in width. It is therefore a rather spacious model which is suitable for both children and adults. Nothing like it to get comfortable!

How to choose a pear ottoman that suits you?
The models available on the market have different characteristics. Dimensions, weights, and materials differ. Some models are also waterproof or fireproof!
To help you choose THE ideal pouffe suitable for your use, here are some characteristics to consider when purchasing.
Pear poufs are rather trendy models that have the advantage of being versatile. Some models are specially designed for children and others for adults.
In general, they are very popular because of their enveloping shape conducive to relaxation and their ergonomic design. Most of them are also easily transportable.
A pear beanbag can also serve as a decorative object, it is in any case a trend that has been emerging for some time. Formerly considered as an extra cushion, the windows of decoration stores now enjoy displaying them!
Choose an ottoman suited to your size and body shape. If you have long legs or want to lie down comfortably, choose a model that comes with a footrest.
If you want a pouffe suitable for adults and children, prefer a large pouffe (about 100 cm wide). A 70 to 75 cm model will be enough for a child.
Depending on the space you have, you have the choice between an imposing model or a lighter and transportable model (if you ever want to move it in the garden for example). For a child, prefer a transportable pouffe so that he can move it as he pleases.
If your ottoman is not intended to stay in one place for a long time, choose a model that allows you to store it easily. For transport, also look at the weight: the models composed of balls weigh slightly heavier than the inflatable poufs.
An ottoman can also give a friendly touch to your interior. And for this, the brands offer you a wide choice of colors and different materials.
The upholstery components differ depending on the model.
Fiber and polystyrene beads
Polystyrene beads are generally used to fill cushions, nape wedges and beanbags because they are light and resistant. And they are machine washable.
To give you an idea of the quantities of beads required, 40 liters of polystyrene beads are necessary to fill a pouf 40 cm in diameter and 30 cm in height.
The polyester fiber is also flexible and resistant. If you have sensitive skin, opt for an anti-bacterial polyester fiber treated against mites.
The inflatable models are more fragile but lighter and therefore very easily transportable.
To get a soft chair, you can fill it with foam flakes. Both soft and swelling, the foam keeps a good hold over time. Foam flakes are generally washable and have the advantage of being able to dry fairly quickly.
Little tips: if you want to make your beanbag from natural materials, you can use husks from cereals or grasses, cherry stones or even sheep wool!
Depending on the brand, you can find pear bean bags made with different types of materials.
If you have allergies or just have sensitive skin, 100% cotton models are available. Pleasant, these models are particularly well suited to children!
The polyester models are also a good choice because they are rather resistant and waterproof. Resistance and waterproofness are essential characteristics if you want to arrange your armchair outside!
The material of the beanbag in which you sit must be able to be comfortable. But another important element: this chair must be resistant! Some materials are also more easily cleaned than others.
The little more pleasant
Some beanbags also offer a higher or lower back which allows you to maintain your back and neck. This is an important element to take into account!
If you know that you will spend a lot of time in the hollow of your chair (especially to play on the console? I do not want to entice you, but you certainly know what I am talking about), think of a seat that offers good support. Or that lets you store some accessories, such as a remote control or a game controller.
Now informed, you just have to choose your favorite pear beanbag!
