Comfysak BEDinside

What’s the Comfysak BEDinside feature all about?

Our Suede and Corduroy Comfysak beanbags all have a bed inside of them. Yes, you read that right! There's a mattress inside the beanbag so that you're prepared for any sleepover emergency, and you’re buying two products at once. So, when the in-laws come for a visit, or your child has a friend sleeping over, or your husband is snoring once again, there's a spare bed for them right in your home. 

A two for one product

Our brand philosophy is to provide our clients with the highest quality products that are versatile and fit right into a family and home. That's why we decided to include our patented specially designed mattress as a filling for our beanbags instead of just pumping them full of those small Styrofoam balls that escape only to have to be vacuumed up. 

It's not like putting a tent back into its bag

To use the BEDinside simply zip off the cover and flatten the bed inside. Putting the mattress back inside the Comfysak cover is easy. All you have to do is roll and fold the inner using our supplied instructions, then zip the cover back on.

Size is everything, after all

We often get queries about what size of Comfysak to buy. Well, we suggest that you measure the space where you want to put the Comfysak and how many beds you want inside your Comfysak. 

Here's a BEDinside list to guide you:

 ComfySAK Size BEDinside Details
Small (Corduroy | Suede) 1 x Double Mattress
Medium (Corduroy | Suede) 1 x Queen Mattresses
Large (Corduroy | Suede) 2 x Double Mattresses
Extra-Large (Corduroy | Suede) 2 x Queen Mattresses

 

Now that you’re clued up about the Comfysak BEDinside feature, we wish you happy sleeping and lounging and flopping onto it. If you have any queries, just pop us an email.

How is the Comfysak CLOUD different to Chinese imports?

Over the last year there’s been an influx of Chinese imported air loungers flooding the market. We decided that it’s time to tell our story and make our fellow South Africans aware that we’re a Cape Town based company who produce our products locally. Here are a few reasons that set us apart from the cheaper Chinese imports:  

Mouth

The Comfysak CLOUD has a single mouth and is therefore easy to inflate with little effort. You don’t need wind so you can inflate it inside your home too. Chinese inflatables have two (2) mouths, which makes it not only confusing and tedious to inflate.

Durable fabric

The Comfysak CLOUD air loungers are made from a polyester-coated genuine nylon Ripstop fabric. The Chinese imports use TPU or TP2-01; which is a nylon FABRIC not Ripstop! Our polyester coating makes the CLOUD soft but in combination with the nylon Ripstop it also makes it strong. The fabric is difficult to puncture; and it is mould and mildew resistant.

 

Non-stick when wet

Comfysak CLOUD air loungers are made of polyester coating that feels both soft and plush. When it gets wet it doesn’t get that sticky coating (like when you’re sweating on rubber and makes that squeaky noise).

Thread

Comfysak CLOUD air loungers are made of nylon weave thread that is almost unbreakable when stitched into a product. All seams have a double-stich unlike Chinese imports, which have a single seam. Chinese products make use of “fashion thread” which is used for clothing and tears easily.

Longevity

The buckles that we use for the Comfysak CLOUD are all YKK. They are made with high-press mould plastic as opposed to the light mould plastic that Chinese copies make use of. The YKK buckles don’t give under pressure, while the Chinese buckles have a habit of popping when under moderate pressure. YKK buckles carry a lifetime warranty.

Great warranty

All our products are made locally in South Africa. In the unlikely event of a problem arising, customers can make use of their one-year warranty for any possible manufacturing defects.

We hope that this post is helpful! The CLOUD is truly one of the most versatile and comfortable pieces of on the go furniture available; and are a necessity for anyone who loves to just flop down and enjoy an adventure, big or small!

How to Chose the Right Comfysak For You

Grab an ice cold Coke and plop down on your Comfysak. Oh, but wait! You don’t own one yet? Then we’ve got the perfect guide for you to help you chose the right Comfysak beanbag for your home.

Here are 4 tips to help you chose:

Indoor vs Outdoor

comfysak-cloudWe have Comfysaks for couch potatoes, outdoor explorers, and indoor loungers. If you love chilling at local beaches, enjoy a picnic in the sun, or want a lounger for your rooftop garden, then our waterproof ComfySAK Cloud or our Outdoor bag is perfect for you.

On the other hand, if you’re looking for a luxurious addition to your living room, kids’ play room, or even your office, then have a look at our indoor range of Comfysaks.

We’ve also developed a Comfysak BEDinside that doubles as a bed for all of those last-minute guests or even the in-laws (yikes!).

Outdoor sak

Fabric

We chose three fabrics that are super-soft, and feel lovely and plush: corduroy, suede, and fur. We also have a durable, outdoor fabric in the shape of the Comfysak CLOUD.

Colour

Now that’s a very personal preference. Inspired by Pantone’s 2016 trendy hues and Africa’s bold colours, we suggest you look at our catalog and find the colour that best suits your home.

We’re busy bees and are always inventing new products to keep our customers happy!

Size

This is the most important factor! Our beanbags are big bad boys. The medium size is almost as large as a double bed. Please measure the space where you want to put the beanbag and compare to our measurements (see below). We don’t want you to chuck out your pot plant just to fit in your Comfysak!

Pick the dimension that’ll fit into the space you want to fill.

Bag Size  Dimensions
Kidsak 1m x 50cm
Small 1.2m x 70cm
Medium 1.4m x 70cm
Large 1.6m x 70cm
X-Large 1.8m x 70cm


Remember: the EXTRA LARGE can fit up to 3 people.

4 Affordable Ways to Make Your Home Feel Instantly Cosy

We’re not talking about going thrift-shopping, spending hours trolling Gumtree, or “up-cycling” old décor items. No, we’re talking about making smart choices for your home that will last you a long time but that won’t break the bank.

1. Textured rugs make a room pop

Generally, the rule is that your living room carpet should be of a good quality and larger than your coffee table – and wide enough that the chairs and sofa in your lounge can rest on it. These types of carpets are usually quite expensive. So if you want to go the more affordable route, get your hands on a textured rug and transform your bedroom or living room instantly.

2. Baskets are beautiful

If you don’t want to spend a lot of money on designer decor items then head to your nearest Builder’s Warehouse. Most outlets sell a range of woven baskets, which echo the shabby chic style. Use it for storage in the kitchen, to fill an empty space (say on top of your fridge), or for a place to store your winter blankets next to the couch.

3. Beanbags are versatile bad boys

If you’ve just bought a home and are looking for furniture pieces that are both bespoke, and will last you a last-time, then a beanbag is a great investment. Comfysak makes quality beanbags that your children, pets, and partner will love! You can use them in the kids’ room, in front of the TV, or outside on the deck.

Don’t worry… these bad boys will last you a lifetime. If you’d prefer to chill outside, Comfysak also has an outdoor range available made of weatherproof material.

4. Sexy succulents make a statement

If you’re heading to the nursery, make sure to have a look at the succulents! They add a pop of cool to any corner or desk in your home. Plus, they’re pretty affordable and require little care.

SO what's the difference between a Comfy (sak) and a beanbag or boontjiesak? Apples and Oranges

Many people are often confused that a Comfy(sak) is just simply a HUGE bean bag or boontjiesak. While it is understandable why this confusion exists, they are far from the same, like apples to oranges!

Many of us grew up having a traditional bean bag of our own.  We were so excited to get that sack home and after only a couple months, its started to look like more a pancake than bean bag :/ Pretty soon it gets tossed out in the garbage because it starts to leak those messy styro-foam beads everywhere and the only person in the family that sits on it anymore is the family pet Fluffy.  Everyone can relate to this and can remember saying to themselves, "I am never buying one of those pieces of junk again!"  While this is a smart decision to make, many people lump comfysak's in a similar category and as a result miss out on enjoying cloud nine comfort that simply can't be duplicated.

The Comfy(sak) and the bean bag or boontjiesak differ on 4 things: Fill, Size, Comfort and Features. 

Fill:  Traditional bean bag chairs use white stryo-foam bead pellets. They are hard pellets that compress over time giving that appearance that the bag is shrinking. That sack then flattens out and soon becomes so compressed that it is no longer useful.  Comfysak's on the other hand use high grade chopped polyurethane foam.  (the same foam used in top of the line couches and mattresses)  This foam will never flatten out and has a memory to it that will ensure that it returns to its original size every time :)  An inner linen sak is included with every Comfy(sak) which eliminates any foam leakage from occurring and also allows you to wash the cover without losing foam. Every Comfy(sak) is filled with our custom made Vitafoam, a perfect blend of high density (memory foam) and medium density foam's best properties; providing maximum support and luxurious comfort. Other South African foam beanbag companies often use recycled or scrap foam imported from countries like China in order to cut costs; this results in a very lumpy and uncomfortable sak that isn't worth the money you paid for it. Comfy(sak) uses only our A grade vitafoam which results in the most comfortable piece of furniture in existence.

Size: Most boontjiesak's are pretty small.  They usually are around 1 meter and other larger ones are pear shaped and claim to be 1.4 meter chairs.  The Comfysak's are available in 1 meter, 1.2 meter, 1.4 meter, 1.6 meter and 1.8 meter diameter sizes.  The 1.2m sak is the perfect piece of dorm furniture for playing video games and watching the latest series.  The 1.8m sak however is our largest size, fitting two to three adults comfortably! It is great for theater rooms and 'man/woman caves' and will be the first seat taken at every family event :)

Comfort:  The comfort is where these products differ the most.  In fact there really should be no comparison on this topic because Comfysak's are in a league of their own when compared to ALL furniture out there. Most bean bag sacks have the shiny vinyl covers that are cold and sticky. Comfysak's come in 3 different indoor covers that are the most comfortable on the market: Suede, Corduroy and Flokati Fur. 

All our fabric options are lightweight which allows you to sink into the sak like you are jumping into a cloud.  The high quality foam cushions you as you flop into the sak creating a feeling of Utopia :)

Features: Traditional beanbags or boontjiesak's and many other foam saks come with no added benefits and features, this is not so with the Comfy(sak). Each Comfy(sak) comes with 4 included benefits and features:

A BEDinside: Our patented BEDinside feature is as its name suggests, namely that when the outside fabric cover is removed from a Comfy(sak), the inner foam filled sack becomes a spare double or queen sized mattress. Perfect for sleepovers :)

MasterGuard Fabric Protection: Considering the luxurious comfort of the Comfy(sak)...and many of its owners falling asleep on them; we thought it completely vital that the Comfy(sak) fabric be protected from any spills and stains for your peace of mind :) MasterGuard protects all our Comfysak's and comes with a 3 year protection warranty.

Static-neutralizing and waterproof base: Few things are worse than becoming charged with static electricity, your hair stands up and gets in a mess; and there's a painful shock from everything one touches :/ Unlike other foam beanbags our Comfysak's have highly durable bases that are inlaid to neutralize static electricity built up from the foam and fabric during use; making sure you don't become a walking plug socket. Additionally, the Comfysak's base is waterproof allowing for basic and temporary outdoor use :)

3 Year Warranty: Benjamin Franklin got it right, "The bitterness of poor quality will remain long after the sweetness of a low price." This is why all our Comfysak's carry a 3 year factory warranty. "Superior Comfort and Quality, backed by Warranty."

We hope that this post is helpful! Comfysak's truly are the most comfortable useful piece of furniture available; and are a necessity for anyone who loves to just flop down and enjoy a good movie.  Flop down, put your feet up and Get Comfy...its Guiltless Luxury!
