About Us


With the aim to create comfortable yet good looking furniture pieces, Blob Beanbags was born in 1996, since then we have continued making beanbags of the highest quality, comfort and design to suit any interior or exterior.

Our Mission is simple:

"To provide you with the most Comfortable & Stylish beanbags without compromising on quality" 

 

Background

Living as a student in 1995 and having no furniture, I looked for a decent beanbag. Unfortunately I never found one I liked: it had to be comfortable, large and resilient, and of course look great . Eventually in 1996 after the birth of my first son, I put together my perfect idea of a beanbag. I found some exciting fabrics, drew up some patterns and got out my sewing machine. Without even knowing how to sew in a zip I muddled my way through and managed to make my first beanbag for our little family to enjoy. To my surprise, visiting friends thought they were great and the orders started rolling in. Eventually keeping up with demand became a struggle and it was time to find outworkers to do the sewing and I would spend any spare time I had cutting out the beanbags on our living room floor. Since those early days Blob Beanbags has come a long way. It was not long till we had our own factory, website and some structure. Our first online store back in 1997 saw us sending beanbags all over the world and there has been no looking back. 

Fast forward to 2016, it is hard to believe we are in our 20th year!! During that time we welcomed another son, two very affectionate dogs and 1 cat who all love to test out the product. Rosalyn our head seamstress who has been with us almost from the beginning and has watched my boys and the business grow is still part of the family and beanbag expert.
