Hug chair takes the weight out of cuddles

Award-winning chair allows extra time for embracing

Hug chair takes the weight out of cuddles
15 May 2012

Everyone loves a cuddle. But have your loved one sit in your lap for too long and your legs will be kicking for freedom, even if your heart is pounding for more.

But why put a time limit on a hug? Bulgarian designer Ilian Millinov has come up with a chair which allows couples to canoodle for as long as they wish without one of the pair losing circulation from the waist down.

The Hug Chair is both chic and practical, with a brilliant curving armrest which is perfect for your significant other to perch on while you hold each other tight.

When you’re away from your special someone, the extra seat doubles as a work space or shelf, perfect for popping your laptop on and catching up with your absent hugger via video chat.

The chair won the Red Dot Award for design concept in 2010.
