Overview

Design by Jukka Setälä.
By Fatboy®.

The Fatboy® Buggle-up provides additional outdoor seating and oodles of comfort you won't find in other outdoor furniture … yes, even the padded ones.

You can sit on it, lay and relax or just lounge on it! Jukka Setälä from Finland designed the Fatboy® in 1998 as the beanbag from the 21st century. Serves a multitude of uses. Suitable for indoor/outdoor use. Available in fourteen colors.

We recommend keeping Buggle-up covered when not in use to minimize constant exposure to water or sunlight. Fading is possible when left in direct sunlight for extended periods of time.

Notes:

Fabric treated with a PVC coating to make it water resistant and stain resistant. Fatboy can be surface cleaned with lukewarm water and soap. Fatboy® products are guaranteed for one year. Normal wear and tear of the products, for which there is no guarantee, includes a gradual decline in the volume of stuffing (the EPS grains) or variance in color.

Specifications

Material(s): Coated nylon filled with virgin polystyrene beads

Dimensions: 55" W X 75" L

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Fat Boy was a Big Hit I was prompted to purchase the Fat Boy because of a visiting family member with an injured shoulder, who was having difficulty sleeping flat in bed. The Fat Boy by using the straps for use as a recliner made a great sleeping alternative for her. However when I used it flat to test as a guest bed my shifting weight ended up displacing to much of the styrofoam. It will spend a lot of time in my patio garden, perfect for resting or reading, it is very comfortable. During a family barbeque it was a big hit, constantly occupied by a one or two nephews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultimate tv chair When I first ordered the fatboy my husband thought I lost my marbles to spend the money on a "beanbag chair". It didnt take long before we would take first dibs on who got to sit in it while we watched tv. Because thier not cheap,it took a couple months before I knew we had to order another one, but I dont regret it. The bags "bottom out" if you sit in them for a long period of time, but they easily reshape and you can manipulate them to fit your desired seating style.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the brand idea, but unhappy with the durability. Let me preface this review with mentioning that I (otherwise) love the FatBoy brand and I have two; one of the original kind and one "buggle up" - or outdoor - FatBoy. The fabric on the "Buggle Up" is significantly more hefty and easy to clean than the fabric of the original FatBoy, and the straps on the outdoor version makes it possible to sit up and hinders the stuffing material from dispersing where you sit (with the original one, you have to "fluff" it pretty much every time you sit on it, or else you basically sit on the ground). Here's the downside; my husband and I had the "Buggle Up" for all of 7 months when the metal clasp securing the strap for the "sit up" function clean broke off (the warranty from FatBoy is only 6mo). We don't have kids, we don't have pets, we just moved to a new place and haven't had people over... it is just my husband and I using the FatBoys - and we don't jump on them or otherwise strain the straps. And we use them indoors. Also, we are relatively petite people, neither of us weigh over 133 lbs/60kgs. I would expect more from a product which is supposedly meant to be sturdy enough to be used as an outdoor piece of furniture. We contacted FatBoy but they couldn't or wouldn't help us (because the warranty was 1 month over) and they suggested that we purchase a new cover (that is, reuse the filling material from our broken FatBoy) - but that would cost us $140. For a broken clasp, that seems a little ridiculous. Because we were, before this happened, much more fond of the "Buggle Up" FatBoy than the original one, we were considering purchasing another of those to replace our original FatBoy. But now, I don't think we want to spend another $350 for a beanbag which will last us 6 months. The point is not so much that we can "just" find some other ad hoc way of securing the broken strap - rather, the point is for a product which is fairly expensive for what it is, I don't want to have to deal with it all of a sudden breaking and having to somehow modify it so shortly after buying it.

Jukka Setala

Designer: Jukka Setala

Jukka Setälä has brought back the bean bag chair. As a Finnish interior architect with a degree from the University of Art and Design Helsinki, Setälä's most famous design is the Fatboy® Original bean bag. Setälä came up with his initial design for the bean bag chair in 1998, but it was launched by Fatboy® in 2002. For those who don't take the bean bag chair seriously, Setälä has taken a luxurious approach when updating this 1970's classic. His bean bags are upholstered with stylish fabrics and offered in a wide variety of colors. Some of his bean bags are large enough to use a guest bed.

Setälä has participated in a number of exhibitions and received such awards as the Excellent Swedish Design Award for his Spring lamp and the Best New Furniture in Europe 2006. Jukka Setälä has been teaching furniture design at the University of Art and Design Helsinki since 1999.
