Papasan chairs, originating in Eastern Asia in the 1950s, are relatively small and extremely comfortable chairs that can be used to easily decorate your indoor and outdoor spaces. They add a touch of beauty and style to any setting and are usually paired with a traditional sofa or couch.
Papasan chairs go by many names – moon chairs, satellite chairs, saucer chairs, or just plain round chairs. Whether you’d like a Papasan chair for curling up to read a book, gaming with friends or watching your favorite movie, the cushion and design of the papasan chair are the two most important things to keep in mind.
The papasan chair’s cushion is a key ingredient in ensuring maximum comfort. Having a cushion that is comfortable, stylish and made of quality material will ensure the longevity of your papasan chair.
Unlike most chairs, the cushion can be purchased separately from the frame, and they can be swapped out for other styles, materials and colors depending on your preference. Just be sure to choose a cushion with matching dimensions of your papasan (or mamasan) chair.
There are many cushions available in a number of shapes and sizes to pair with your papasan chair so let’s take a look at some of the best papasan cushions available, as reviewed by editors and users worldwide.
