Warming up for autumn, making the most of the last summer sun with bean bag chairs and loungers

It’s September, and one of the topsiest-turviest summers ever is drawing to a stormy close. Fingers crossed for some balmy, sunny days to ease us into autumn! I’m really looking forward to some quiet afternoons in the garden and to welcoming friends to a final barbecue (or three!) of 2020. Armadillo Sun’s laidback bean bag furniture helps you make the most of the last days of summer, so that you can relax outside easily and comfortably in style.

Stretching out the sunny days with luxury bean bag furniture

Our beanbag chairs, loungers and tables are light and portable, making them super-easy to whip out on a sunny afternoon.  No heavy lifting, dragging or cleaning required – even the children can help out!

Handmade in the UK, our contemporary beanbag furniture is designed for our ever-changing weather. Constructed from a soft, durable, solution-dyed acrylic that feels like cotton, it’s weatherproof and water-resistant, so the rain (and the hail, if you’re really unlucky!) simply runs off. Leave them outside all summer long and into autumn, too – our fabric comes with a five-year guarantee against fading and rot.

As the colour begins to ebb from the garden, our stylish furniture provides cheer and interest, especially when mixed-and-matched, or accessorised with our patterned cushions in wavy Palm (for that tropical, poolside look), geometric Lattice (for the global trend) and Summer Stripe (the enduring classic) and lends a chic edge to even the most unkempt garden.

Fend off the chill by lighting a firepit or chimenea and investing in some cosy woollen throws so that you can enjoy alfresco living that little bit longer in warmth and comfort. Once you’ve sunk into one of our cocooning, oversize loungers, you won’t want to get up!

Bringing the outdoors indoors… until next summer

And when it’s finally time to pack up the garden furniture, Armadillo Sun chairs, loungers and tables can happily be repurposed indoors. It’s a new way to think about furniture as the boundaries between our inside and outside spaces blur. Our versatile pieces sit in any setting, from breakfast rooms to playrooms to the latest must-have - a home bar.

Decorating with beanbags the autumn/winter 2020 way

It doesn’t take a crystal ball to see that we’ll be at home more than usual, so it’s a good time to take stock, have a clear out and rethink your space with a focus on calm and comfort – while keeping an eye on the latest interiors trends. Ocean Blue, Cuba Ruby and Ice Blue are among this season’s tranquil hues and work well against the new wave of warmer, neutral wall colours, while Lattice tables and cushions tap into the world traveller trend and look at home alongside kilim-style rugs, tiles and glass pendants.

The tropical-botanical ‘jungalow’ trend has truly gone mainstream, so succulents, peace lilies, fiddle-leaf figs and all manner of house plants are scrambling around light, bright rooms together with lots of wicker, pottery and wood. Palm print is key to this look, especially in soft greens and blues. This Seventies-influenced décor is a perfect backdrop for your beanbag furniture. And remember, if you can’t find the piece you need online, we do bespoke.

Autumn will come soon enough but meanwhile, we’ll look on the bright side and hope for an Indian summer. Enjoy!
