If you haven’t seen a beanbag chair since your rec room days, you’re in for a surprise when you check out il Saccotto‘s adorable animal beanbags chairs. Designed by Anna and Alberto, two Italian architects who wanted to create a soft friend for their young son, the Saccotto is half chair, half stuffed animal, and 100% lovable.

Anna and Alberto left no detail unturned, choosing beautiful colors for each animal that reflected its characteristics – a vibrant purple for Hippop the funny hippo, for example. We’re also partial to Triky, the walrus, but would also happily cuddle up to Annibale the elephant or Dolby the kangaroo.

Made entirely in Italy by professional tailors, each chair has a velvety cotton cover that can be removed for easy washing. And just in time for family meals outside or picnics in the yard, il Saccotto has introduced outdoor Saccottos with water-repellant covers.
