One summer day in 1995 a highly creative, overly impulsive, and un-dyingly determined 18-year-old thought to himself, "I want to take a beanbag and Oversize it." So he did. Shawn David Nelson's huge Sac was seven feet across and took three weeks to stuff. He tried bean bag beads, but they made a mess, and were really not that soft. He then filled it with everything he could find, from packing peanuts to pillows to foam from those yellow camping mattresses, chopped up on a paper cutter. Now all Shawn needed was a name for his Sac. Harnessing the retro spirit of the 1970's and combining it with the idea of a "bag" gave birth to the name "LoveSac."
