Ever been silly enough to buy one of those vinyl bean bag chairs sold at the side of the road? Then you'll know how they droop as the poystyrene balls inside compress... After a year or so they're good for nothing but tripping over as you stagger towards the back door with arms full of laundry.
We have two of these things taking up space. I could have thrown them out, and I could have thrown out the green curtains from our old flat. But then what would I have used to make this seat - I mean, dog bed?
(I downloaded the pattern for a bean bag chair from here.)
