Recommendations for a chair or beanbag for nursing older baby please

My friend's baby is due any day now and I'd promised her my nursing chair, having optimistically assumed I would no longer be breastfeeding at least 6 times per night (DS is 9 months).

Although she won't mind not having it, it is better suited to a newborn and I find it hard to fit DS and his legs in between the arms. It's also too big for his room really.

Does anyone have any good ideas for alternatives to big, bulky chairs? I've tried feeding in banana shaped beanbags at playgroups and they were good, but not sure how comfy they'd be for extended periods in the night time? I could borrow an ikea Poang, but think that might also be too big.

I have used the IKEA poang for breastfeeding my last two us in my son's very small bedroom, It doesn't take up too much room, and is comfortable.
