Japanese innovator Muji is slowly expanding, allowing the world to now experience its body-fit cushions. This beanbag-inspired chair sits on the ground and can be used for watching television, relaxing, reading, or can even replace the traditional couch.

Its small frame is surprisingly comfortable and allows for easy storing or for apartment dwellers. Uniquely, the cushion can provide two experiences. The more commonly used setting would be as a chair, allowing for a comfortable seat. The other option, turning it on its side, allows for a slightly firmer surface that you can lie down on.

The material in the cushion is a combination of squishy yet firm, resembling memory foam. Its light and easy-to-handle frame makes transporting or moving it simple. The cushion comes in brown and beige but a variety of colors are available at Muji's Japan locations.
