In our world of consumerism and life of wants, I often like to find ways to reign in our cluttered surroundings and live a bit more minimalist.

As you may know, I am a big promoter of multi-functional furniture that allows more room, which is why we’re going to look at a chic little two-in-one product that I’ve recently come to own.

b-qubed beanbag chair and table

Its made by a company called B-Bag and is known as the B-Qubed with tabletop – an obvious name when you consider its architecture.

It’s a comfortable, compact beanbag when you need the occasional extra seat and a neat, and surprisingly sturdy, coffee table when you need somewhere to settle your cup.

Whether you’d ever need it as both is up to your lifestyle. I tend to have friends over quite regularly so its use will depend on whether I have enough seating for my guests. Too many people and the B-Qubed will find itself squashed by a bottom but fewer peeps will allow it to meet the requirements that a tiny table can provide.

Using the B-Qubed as a Chair

At a first glance this product doesn’t look like it would be strong enough to hold your weight, what with its multiple square-shaped gaps. Nevertheless I was pleased with its performance as a beanbag chair. Firm enough for a sensible sitting position and stable enough to prevent you from rolling off.

Using the B-Qubed as a Table

Once the strengthened piece of plastic tabletop has been slotted into the beanbag, it becomes the perfect side table. I know I said coffee table earlier but I don’t find the surface large enough compared to a typical side table.

I tried balancing a pint glass full of water on the corner, which I thought would be its weakest point. Again, I was pleasantly surprised at its stability, even when under a mini-earthquake test.

In addition, the square gap in the centre of the tabletop makes it a perfect holder for the many television remote controls I unfortunately own. However, you could put some type of decoration inside of it, like a mock flower and vase.


Suitable Interior Styles

It is obvious that this piece of furniture would be best suited to a modern, clean and contemporary-styled room – most likely the living room. It does, however, have a futuristic appeal to it that would make it well suited for a kid’s bedroom or games room.

The faux leather upholstery feels genuine and could certainly fool a discerning eye plus it fit in with the two-piece suite in my living room – all of which is also made of faux material.


Where I Got It

I got hold of this innovative piece of furniture from Room to Grow. I chose to have mine in purple – as close to Home Luv’s signature colour as possible; but you can buy it in 11 other colours too.

I was impressed by the quick delivery time, although the presentation wasn’t anything spectacular. Then again, how often do you expect a package to be sparkling with the dust of a thousand glowing fairies?

In this case I think the company are missing a trick by not having some form of branded packaging like Amazon do. Marketing advice over, now to back to the product.

Overall I am impressed by the design of this chair/ table and would recommend it for people who could fit a piece of futuristic-looking minimalism into their homes.

My only concern is how long will it be before the chair begins to sag and its supple structure deteriorates? Only time will tell!
