Snug as a bug


These real sheepskin beanbags make a cosy corner for small children, and babies too

Lightweight and compact, they double as a seat or footstool – and the beans, which are in a stockinet sleeve, can be adjusted to create a deeper seat or nest for babies and younger children.

Natural sheepskin is an effective insulator which helps to regulate body temperature and keep the bean bags incredibly warm and snug in winter, but surprisingly cool in summer.

Measuring 70 x 45cm, they are available in sheepskin, hair on cowhide and leather and they have an upholstery quality leather base and a protective leather zip cover to prevent beans from escaping. Prices range from £299 to £475, from The English Cowhide Company
