Manufacturers of bean bag chairs are not concerned about weight limits. So, I talked with an expert who has a lot of experience in this industry.

He said that office chairs have various mechanisms and are made of hard materials. That’s why the weight limit is so important in the case of office chairs.

However, when it comes to bean bag chairs, the weight of the person seated on the chair is very well distributed all around. Also, there are no mechanical or moving parts and no hard frame. So, we don’t need to worry about weight limits on bean bag chairs.

If you can fit in it, you can sit on it. So, don’t worry about weight limits.
