Everyone has decorating obstacles—weird nooks, non-existent seating options, miniature doors that lead to nowhere. The weird nook is what realtors and landlords alike call "charming," and the miniature door, well they never noticed it until you pointed it out. Structurally, these are things we live with, but non-existent seating options? Well we can certainly do something about that. The Fatboy Point by Dwell is best defined as a soft, round dot covered with even more dots. And like the lyrics to a song you just can't figure out, you can make the Point whatever you want it to be, a stool, a cushion, a footrest, or even a table. Now if we could only figure out what to do about that miniature door.

It's kinda fun to trace the evolution of objects throughout history. For instance, the television set; once oversized & clunky, has now transformed into something so sleek and sophisticated you can mount it on your wall as a piece of art. The same is true for beanbag chairs. Remember the vinyl one your friend Jimmy had in elementary school? That one was amazing until you fell asleep on it. Peeling your face off a beanbag chair, not pretty. Obviously, there was room for improvement. It is safe to say that this special edition signature print Fatboy Original by Dwell introduces the beanbag to the 21st century. Covered in kicky stripes and dots - the oversized bean pillow can be used as a lounge bag, bed, armchair, or a freestanding piece of art.
