Since the polar vortex ended it's actually been pretty balmy and there has been little need for sofas that envelope you in their warmth. But the cold weather is bound to come back eventually and when it does, you're probably going to want either a wearable sofa-blanket or a sofa that has arms so that it can hug you. It's just common sense. This particular hugging sofa, called the Free Hug Sofa (the sofa would cost money, but the hugs are free) is from designer Eun Kyoung Lee and was created for the A' Design Awards.
