This would be an excellent product to sell on-line. If you are able to open a store and sell on-line, you will be able to reach a vast amount of buyers. The internet proves to be a good choice where you can create a website to display pictures of your beanbag chairs on the website. Include all of the information on what is available for people to order from you. Since these chairs (filled with polystyrene) won't be very heavy, they should be easy to ship also. You will want to ship with companies that charge by weight and not size.
These fun-loving chairs are quite popular and easy to make. If you enjoy sewing, this is a 'business idea' that might appeal to you. The profits are quite good too; these chairs are just a big bag full of stuffing or beans. The popular filling these days is polystyrene pellets because they are lightweight. So there isn't a lot of sewing required, you don't even need to put a zipper on it, unless you want to.
A typical quality beanbag chair will have a durable muslin inner bag that holds the beans, or filling. Then it has an outer cover that can later be taken off and laundered as needed, this cover has a zipper on it (or Velcro closures). It takes 3-5 yards of fabric each for the inner case and the outer cover of an adult size chair, the outer cover will need a long zipper (or Velcro). Each adult chair requires about 6 cu. feet of filling.
These chairs take quite a bit of use and abuse, so you will want to make them from strong durable fabrics. It would be a good idea to make up many different types of chairs and sizes in a great variety of different fabrics. The more that you can show your customers the better it will be for your sales. Take pictures of all the different types of chairs that you can offer.
A lot of furniture can be found in a typical business set up but one of the most important fixtures is the chairs employees use. There are several things that you should consider when getting chairs or office furniture, one is its capacity to keep you awake all throughout the day.
A good way to help people find your store is to offer the chairs with on-line auction sites, even if you break-even on the sales, it is an excellent way to find new customers. Establish yourself on a regular basis and your customer list will grow quickly. Make sure that you make known that you are willing to take special orders of your products in fabric choices they may prefer.
