Either way, you can consider building one from old pallet wood. Aside from being able to tailor the size to your space, you have the option to add in extra storage too!
Turn it into cozy seating for your entertainment center
As adorable as bean bag chairs are for your home theatre, they could tear and sag in just a few years. Try going for something more sturdy like wooden crate chairs.
