Coat New Zealand

Remember bean bag chairs? Amorphous bags filled with polystyrene “beans”, bean bag chairs were the staple of every college dorm, teenager’s room, and home playroom. They were fun to roll around on and getting comfortable was simply a matter of wiggling around until the bag conformed to your body. Easy, simple, and basic, bean bag furniture was inexpensive, portable, and easily replaced when necessary.
