Well, as I mentioned on our ABOUT page, I started out as a bean bag customer (well, a wannabe customer) and had NO IDEA I would ever start a bean bag business. I'll never forget the first time I sat in a Heavenly Bean Bag (well, it wasn't officially a Heavenly bean bag...since there was no such thing back then - but VERY similar). I was incredily impressed at the size and comfort of the bean bag. I had truly never sat in anything so comfortable. But, to be honest I was also a bit miffed. It was over $100. When Mr. Feldman, the owner of the Bean Bag Store, mentioned the price I laughed out loud. I thought he was kidding. When I realized he wasn't, I was so frustrated. For a bean bag? I thought. There is no way I could, or would, ever pay that much! Fortunately I couldn't get the silly thing out of my head and did end up buying (well babysitting for) a large navy blue bean bag.
Now that I am in Mr. Feldman's shoes, I often end up in the same situation. People love the bags - until they aks the price. Believe it or not, I've even been cursed at because of the prices. However on a regular basis, people come back. They can't stop thinking about the bean bags - or how comfortable they are. A bean bag is a bean bag, right? Well, not exactly.
Most bean bags are round. The part of the body that is touching the bean bag is comfy - but it is usally only the lower half. And, although that is a large part of the body (or at least it is on me) it isn't the part that needs the most support. The upper body is where we feel our tension. We need to relax our shoulders, close our eyes and say goodbye to the stress of the day. Well, that is one of the best features of Heavenly Bean Bags - they are totally designed to support the head, neck and back...and more comfortably than the most expensive recliners! Even though they look like round bean bag chairs, we've tweaked the seams just enough to make them completly supportive.
Once you're relaxed - your loved ones will be ready for their turn. If they happen to be a lot shorter and cuter than you, or if they have a couple of extra legs, don't worry our bean bags are incredibly durable. We use high quality upholstery fabrics and we tripple stich them! We are so confident that they are going to last that we offer a lifetime guarantee on our seams. Our seamstresses, who live right here in Maine, work diligently at making a quality product.
Well, I thought I'd be able to sum up the differences of our bean bags while my kids were napping...but, they (we've got four) are all up and I've only just begun. I'll go ahead and post these few differences for now - but don't you worry (I'm sure you would have lost sleep over it), I'll be back to post more!
