Whatever your personal taste in sofas, there’s one indisputable fact: comfort is key. And what could be more comfortable than a sofa that actually wraps its arms around you and draws you into massive bear hug?

It's the perfect addition to the home of any lone dwellers — or anyone who favours a cuddle from an inanimate object over that of a real person.

The "Free Hug Sofa" is the invention of Seoul designer Eun Kyoung Lee and won the Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design Category in last year's A' Design Award & Competition.

Lee told DesignPRWire that the inspiration for her Free Hug Sofa came from watching her sister breastfeeding her baby with a breastfeeding cushion. She said the "warmth and stable image [sic]" in her mind made her smile, and that her main focus in designing the piece was bringing "happiness and comfort to the lonely, lonely people".

Not only does the sofa have a super comfy base, it also has enormous arms that can be wrapped around you as you curl up to relax, read a book or have a snooze.

"It will hold you warm and soft like your mother, friend, and a lover without feeling lonely," said Lee.

And it's available in a range of colours to match the rest of your home decor (you may want to rehome your other chairs, as they'll definitely feel inferior).
