Just last year, Kyoung was awarded a Bronze A' Design Award for the couch's design, per Mashable's report. Here's how she described the friendly furniture:
“The long arm stretched out resembles humans and looks like saying ‘Come here I will hold you in my arms.’ Because the sofa gives the feeling of being alive, it will hold you warm and soft like your mother, friend, and a lover without feeling lonely. It will present the dream of innocent childhood by giving the feeling of the soft heart of mother or the arms of the doll wrapping around you in your childhood. The cushion was put on the sofa before but this product combined the sofa and the cushion which moves freely. Accordingly, the usability is unlimited for user preference. ”
Let's just say your "user preference" will likely be 'never getting up again.'
