John Lewis The Basics Bean Bag, Black

Product information

A great-value essential, this beanbag offers relaxed and comfortable extra seating everywhere from lounges to games rooms. The pure cotton cover and plump filling is held in place with a hardwearing black, dipryl base, which can be relied upon to prevent colour transfer to your carpet. The base forms the underside of the beanbag, and should not be visible when in use.

With John Lewis quality at reassuringly low prices, our range The Basics has everything your home needs for the day to day.

We’ve rebranded our Value range to The Basics, continuing to offer quality and value for everyday living. When you receive your order you may find it comes in either packaging, but please be assured, it’s exactly the same product inside.

Q & As


John Lewis The Basics Bean Bag 4.1 5 19 19
Very Small and Poor value. Don't buy this for anyone over 6yrs . Its tiny and the same price as many large beanbags on the market. 15 August 2013
Not long lasting I bought 2 of these in February 2012. I have had to throw one out today as the synthetic bottom has worn through and the beans are coming out. They have both also split at the handle and have had to be sewn up. For the price I didn't expect them to last forever but I would say they are not that sturdy. 21 June 2013
Too small Having shopped around, as you would expect from John Lewis, the price seemed fair and the quality excellent but it is so so small! Would perhaps suit an under 10, it is certainly no use for an adult or teen. The small size had been mentioned by other reviewers but we took a risk - sadly they were 100% correct and it has been returned. Perhaps you could offer a larger range of colours in the bigger version for bigger people! 21 June 2013
Kids love them!! Great beanbag, kids find them very comfy. They got one each for Christmas and haven't been off them since. My daughter is 10 and its a great fit for her. 02 January 2013
Good value bean bag As usual , in my experience , great service from John Lewis . Bean bag is a good size and comes ready filled which is a great help . Strong fabric and a very bright red . 07 December 2012
Disappointed This beanbag is not 100% cotton as indicated in the description. Unfortunately there is a cheap synthetic base. I had expected cotton all over without a base. Also, it is quite small and not sure if it is going to be of use to my 15 year old son. Disappointed because I bought a markedly superior cotton beanbag from John Lewis 15 years ago. Whilst a little grubby, it is still going strong despite heavy use. I cannot see this one giving anywhere like the same service. Not only because it isn't as big or as comfy so won't be used as much but also because that horrid papery base material will go through in no time - they use the same stuff on Ikea sofas on parts of the cover not visible and it does not last. Unfortunately my children had the bag out of the box and were jumping on it before I could stop them otherwise I would send this back! 20 October 2012
Really nice - use it everyday love this bean bag worth the money , looks smart not too small or big- me my husband and kids all use it 10 October 2012
red bean bag should have read other reviewers comments, overal the bag is smaller than expected and the base is black which contrasts vividly if not in upright position. Not as comfortable as previous JL bean bag which I've had for 5 years. probably ok for a young child. 29 September 2012
