The armrests of the HUG Armchair look as though they are outstretched for a big, cozy embrace, hence its name. As personably inviting as it is, the design is not as cartoonish as some may assume. Instead, the clean lines and minimalist silhouette of the HUG Armchair makes it incredibly sophisticated. In essence, it is perfect for a family home that doesn't want to lose its touch on adulthood.

Created by designer Claesson Koivisto Rune for Arflex, the HUG Armchair boasts colorful upholstery with equally vibrant metal bases. Nevertheless, the leg frame is also available in solid wood for a more serious mood. Friendly and welcoming, the designers write that its stance "is meant as a universal invitation: 'Come, sit with me a while and I’ll put you at ease.'"
