As you gaze upon the FAVN Sofa, you'll see that one doesn't have to forgo the comfort of home for the sophistication of modernity (or vice versa, for that matter). Instead, this stunning yet simple piece of furniture embraces both concepts. It should come as no surprise that FAVN happens to mean "embrace" in Danish.

Designed by Jaime Hayón for Fritz Hansen, the FAVN Sofa is a masterpiece with minimalist aesthetics. Low and inviting, its curving arms provide a welcoming area of rest for the tired and weary. More than that, the FAVN Sofa boasts sleek lines that provides an elegant vibe for whatever living space it is put in.

According to Hayon, the FAVN Sofa is inspired by a shell, "being hard on the outside, soft and welcoming on the inside."
