Those fatboy ones are quite similar to http://www.sumolounge.com with the big red tag and all. I don't know who came first, though.

Anyone have an original fatboy? I wonder just how funcitonal they are as daily furniture. And it would be nice to hear a review with someone who has lived with one for awhile.

Hi, I do have one Original Fatboy.
I have it for 3 months or so and I use it everyday.
I don't have to clean it (maybe that's because I'm clean), my dog can't climb on it (althought he LOVES laying on furniture he is forbidden to use), and I use it as a desk chair. That's the worst idea ever. (too low, too unconvinient And I keep on using it for that.
I love relax on it.
The best thing to do with it, is watching tv or play videogames.
So far, I don't regret having bought it.
Other questions ? mail me : tony (at) atchoupitchou (dot) com
