I wish I had a Love Sac
A sad, but true story
I am a 31 year old female and I can honestly say I have never had the joys of owning my very own Love Sac. It is a sad reality, and I am pretty sure many others can relate. The soft cushiony feel of these Love Sacs are truly something I am missing out on. The joys that it could bring not only to me, but to the entire family as well is something I can no longer ignore. Company would also enjoy my newly acquired Love Sac. If I owned my own Love Sac, I would be bragging and showing them off to everyone that listened and anyone who wanted to see. I might even approach complete strangers, convincing them that they too should invest in their very own Love Sac.
I don’t really remember the first time I was introduced to these Love Sacs, but I am pretty sure it was when I was much younger. I wanted one then as well. But the price was out of my grasp. The expense was something I really didn’t feel I was willing to pay… whether it was saving up for this sac of joy, paying upfront, or even thinking about a payment plan.
A week ago, I once again became obsessed with the Love Sac. As an older and much wiser woman, I realized it is worth the investment. Now, I am determined. I have set my mind too it. I am going to save up the money and one day, I too will be a proud owner of a Love Sac.
The Love Sac
So, what is a Love Sac
By now, I can only imagine some of you are a little concerned. You have probably pegged me as a pervert, or possibly imagining me wanting some sort of sex change. I can assure you, that is not the case. A Love Sac is actually an adult bean bag.
In terms of age, the Love Sac hasn’t been around for too long. It is a baby in the eyes of furniture everywhere. Yet, with the hip design, the comfort, and the maneuverability of these items, all stemming from the very first Love Sac, this is sure to be the revolution of the future when it comes to furniture.
The idea started back in 1995 from a highly creative and determined 18 year old boy, Shawn David Nelson. He just decided that he wanted an oversized bean bag. With no such thing in existence, he went ahead and made it for himself. The original sac was 7 feet across and took him 3 weeks to stuff. Yet, the use of regular bean bag beads proved to be a mess. He needed something new. That is how he came up with the idea to stuff it with foam. The idea worked. And naturally, he couldn’t help but take his Love Sac everywhere he went. He eventually became known as “the kid with the big Sac.”
Soon the product had become a big hit and he was getting requests from neighbors so they could have their very own sac as well. Still, in 1998, 3 years after his very first Love Sac, this million dollar idea hadn’t taken off yet, other than locally. He was a college student and on a different path. It wasn’t until late 2001 before the first Love Sac store actually opened in Salt Lake City.
The store took off immediately and today there are 20 stores around the country and these Love Sacs are available for purchase online for those who don’t have a store near them. They have set a name for themselves as a furniture invention, and have made it so they are not just another furniture retailer.
Why should I get a Love Sac?
With quality comes a price, and I refuse to sugar coat the reality. These furniture designs have a hefty cost. However, they also come with 2 lifetime guarantees, which means this may be the last furniture purchase you ever make. If you are anything like me, you have probably been through a few pieces already. Personally, I think I have already owned 6 couches.
Now you are probably thinking, “Why would I want bean bags as my only type of furniture?” Well, when Love Sac first came out, it is true they only carried a variety of different bean bag sizes. However, today that is no longer the case. Not only do they still offer the giant bean bags, but they also offer Sactionals and a wide variety of other Love Sac accessories.
The Sactionals are really what drew me in the second time around. Do I want a giant oversized bean bag? Of course I do. But I also want furniture that everybody is comfortable sitting on, including Grandma. (Now I am not saying Grandmas won’t sit in the original Love Sac, but I am almost certain they would be far more comfortable on a Sactional!)
A Sactional is basically just like ordinary furniture, but with a twist. The Sactional can be as big or as small as you want it, considering it is made up from different pieces. These pieces are the base and the side. A back chair requires just one base and one side, while a chaise takes 2 bases and 2 sides. The designs are unlimited. You can even make a huge sectional or just divide them up to make a couch and chair. The choice is completely up to you.
The bonus is, the Sactionals are made up of small pieces, which make it easier to move around. This is beneficial for anybody that moves from house to house. Not only because it makes this furniture easy to transport, but because as we all know, not all houses are created equally. One might have a huge living room, while the next has one that is small and odd shaped. This furniture will guarantee your living room furniture will work wherever you go.
The other added benefit is the change. Are you sick of your furniture and want something new. Every product sold at Love Sac has a cover. These covers allow you to swap out one color for a different one. The best part is, they are also washable. So, if you child just spilled something on the couch - no worries. Take the cover off and throw into the washing machine.
The only downfall I can see is the price of these items. But, like I said earlier, the price is made up in the quality. If the furniture ever starts to flatten out, Love Sac will provide you with additional stuffing. Not to mention, the patented design is guaranteed to be rock solid once it is connected. If that isn’t enough, 2 lifetime guarantees this will be the last furniture purchase you will ever make.

I want one!!!
I really want a Love Sac
So, I have decided that I really want a Love Sac. And with this decision, I will eventually get a Love Sac. Sure, it will take time and it will take persistence to save up the extra money, but I truly believe that I will eventually own one. My first purchase will be the PillowSac with the rocker. All and all, it will cost me about $500.
With that being said…. I guess I better get to work on earning some money!
