Design by Jukka Setälä.
By Fatboy®.

The ultimate treat for just about anywhere.

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. A Fatboy® deserves a place in every living and bedroom. It has a multitude of uses: A lounge-bag for a student's room, a relaxing option for the office, a comforting-pillow for children, or even, a spare bed for unexpected guests. Select from 22 colors.

Color nuances will vary across styles (ie The Fatboy® Original in turquoise may differ from the Fatboy® Junior in turquoise.)


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.


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

Dimensions: 55" W X 70" L

Simply fantastic!

By: Dominique, Homeowner

I bought two Fayboys for my children to lounge on while watching TV and playing video games. I am extremely peased with purchase! The look is great, and they are very robust and durable. Shipping/delivery with Yliving was smooth, they came in two big cardboard boxes and were delivered in just a few days. The sittability factor is great, they can be anything from a mini mattress to an office chair. They are like a Tempur-pedic mattress where it conforms to you and there is no pressure point. You can position yourself in all sorts of ways other than flat. Very comfortable and supportive. All in all a great purchase!

Comfortable but not as good as ez bean bag

By: Wendy, Homeowner (Sf)

I bought for a 25 year old...he gets in and out and his pals love it. However we also have an exbean bag. Much more expensive but easier for us 50pluscrowd to use. Ultimately it was a good purchase for him but well stick with the other brand. It sits very vertical and you have to get into it properly or you'll fall out.

Daughter loves the beanbag! Great service!

By: Amber B., Homeowner (Houston, TX)

This was my first purchase from Y Living. I saved a with free shipping and didn't have to pay tax either which made it cheaper than buying local. My 3 year old hopped on the beanbag and moves it from room to room constantly. I may need to get another one because the hot pink doesn't really go with living room colors :) Her granddad loves it too because he's always trying to sit on the floor with her like she wants him to but it's hard on his back. This makes a nice floor cushion for him. Highly recommend!

Eye catching item for a hip room

By: Irina K., Homeowner (san francisco)

We bought the fatboy for my husband's office and then bought another one for my school-age daughter. They look cool, modern and are very well made. Colors are happy and clearly make a statement. Great for one person to sit comfortably with a book or laptop, but difficult for two people. Once the first person is seated, the beads spread out and the fatboy becomes very hard for the second person.

Great for a teenage boy

Our children love the Fatboy.

By: Betsy W., Homeowner (Arlington, VA)

I purchased a Fatboy for our family room and it is a big hit with our five children. The two youngest can sit on it at the same time to watch TV and our oldest son says he'd be willing to give up his bed in his bedroom to sleep in a Fatboy.

Better than a traditional bean bag!

By: Karen , Homeowner (Andover, mn)

Very high quality. The "stuffing" relaxes quite a bit after the first day of use but has held up well after a month. The fabric is very durable. Many, many, different ways to use the fatboy. My only complaint is I bought 2 fat boys full price and 4 days later they went on sale. Y living would not honor the sale price. Most companies I have delt with do.

Not happy with it and the police of no refunds from company

By: Alona B., Homeowner (Chevy Chase Md )

Does not hold shape at falls back to the floor, perhaps only against a wall may work. Constantly need to reshape it .. Not worth the cost or space in my flat. Would not recommend it

Fabulous, comfortable seating!

By: Joan G., Homeowner (St. Paul, MN USA)

We got this for our son, who has a disability that makes it difficult for him to sit up. It could not be more perfect. Now we all find ourselves using it for snoozing, reading, watching TV..... It's lightweight and easy to transfer from one room to another and it looks good, too. We chose the brown and it blends right in with our darker furniture. A really good choice for easy and inexpensive seating.

Fatboy needs a fatgirl.

By: Jonathan R., Designer (Louisville)

Fatboys are awesome. The perfect mix of function and eye catching aesthetics. Works great in my art deco living space.

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.
