Cozy Sofa with Arms Designed to Wrap Anyone Sitting On It in Warm Hugs

Is there anything better than a warm hug that makes you feel safe and loved? This question was the inspiration behind designer Eun Kyoung Lee‘s Free Hug Sofa, which she created for the A’ Design Awards. Aside from the sofa’s cozy base, there’s one feature that makes it entirely unique–it has arms! As you curl up on the Free Hug Sofa to read a book, relax, or even take a nap, you can wrap the arms around you so that, according to Lee, “It will hold you warm and soft like your mother, friend, and a lover without feeling lonely.”

The artist was inspired to create this thoughtful product after her sister gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. When she watched her nephew interact with his mom, Lee was immediately reminded of the safe, loved feeling she felt as a child and wanted to incorporate that into her design. When discussing her Free Hug Sofa, the designer concludes, “In [the] hardness and urban chaos of the world, people are going to live a pure emptiness, [remember their] forgotten childhood, [and] relax.”
