Goula Figuera, a Barcelona-based design studio founded by Pablo Figuera and Álvaro Goula, has designed a playful couch that promotes privacy. It is essentially a day bed that can be converted into a fun pillow fort for those who are looking to escape into a well-deserved sanctuary. Although Goula Figuera clearly designed it with adults in mind, it is a piece of furniture that will be equally attractive to children.

Dubbed Orwell, Goula Figuera's fort-inspired couch was named after the author of '1984' for good reason. The designers write, "The name references the original idea of the product which was to recapture that intimacy which can sometimes be lost, even within our own homes." If anything, Goula Figuera reminds people to take a moment to sit back, relax and enjoy the moment.
