Care & Filling

ambient lounge bean bags are shipped unfilled internationally, direct from our warehouse in the United Kingdom. Our bean bags have been designed to be filled with polystyrene beans (also known as EPS beans or beads). For US and Canada-based customers due to the size/volume of filled bean bags it is far more cost effective to send unfilled bean bag covers, therefore you will need to purchase polystyrene filling independently online or from retail stores. Our recommended list of retailers include:




Every order comes with our quick-fill Funnelweb zip & tip transfer system. Simply transfer your polystyrene filling into the zip & tip transfer system to fill your new ambient lounges. See the Zip & Tip system in action below!



With the Funnelweb® system you will never need to spill the beans. The exclusive Funnelweb® Zip & Tip system takes all of the hassle out of filling and emptying ambient lounge (and Funnelweb® compatible) bean bag chairs. In 30 seconds, you zip your inner bag to the bean bag and zip the beads in. The advantages are not limited to convenience - caring for your bean bag cover is also easier. You can empty and clean your cover with one person in a matter of seconds.

Filling volumes can vary by personal preference. Some like them firmer and more structured, some prefer them softer so they can sink right in. Beans will compress slightly over time, making the bean bags softer and more comfortable with use. We recommend topping them up as required to get the bean bag to a level of comfort you are happy with. This will also help maintain the shape and structure of the product.
