Hugs are awesome. Humans need that kind of physical contact, especially when we are lonely or sad. Hugs really make everything better. Even animals do it. That’s probably why designer Eun Kyoung Lee created this piece of furniture for the A’ Design Award and Competition.
It is basically a furry chair that you sit in and it can hug you back. It’s called the Free Hug Sofa. It’s a plush seat with two big arms that you can wrap around yourself to help you relax after a long hard day. Put two together for a full-body hug.
Lee got the idea for the Free Hug Sofa while watching her sister interacting with her newborn son. That’s why Lee says, “It will hold you warm and soft like your mother, friend, and a lover without feeling lonely.” It’s a cool idea that will make you feel better any time you could use a hug.
