Orwell Sofa by Goula Figuera

Dec 4, 2019

Category: Living

Designer Goula Figuera tackled a new hybrid project titled Orwell, where he channeled childhood memories by combining a sofa, bed and cabin into one napping nest.

Hybrid projects are some of our favorite around these parts, and Orwell (gaining inspiration from the author’s surname of the iconic book ‘1984’) shows exactly why. This sofa has been covered with walls on three sides, creating a secluded cabin like feeling for would-be nappers. Adding to this already intimate environment, heavy quilted curtains can be draped over the front of the bed, which also provides some nice sound insulation from the noisy outside world. This piece of multi-functional furniture isn’t currently for sale, but it does provide some nice inspiration for urban dwellers and others residing in small spaces.
