Deep in the cold and darkness of winter, we start thinking of places and ways to snuggle up.

Above, the cushioned sofa by German project designer Christiane Hogner was originally made from sandbags, but is now built entirely of pillows. We can’t think of a more luscious place to spend a cold winter afternoon. And below, also from Hogner, are pillows that Hogner designed out of her father’s old shirts. It gives a whole new meaning to the expression “a stuffed shirt.”

Looking for a cozy modern bed? Check out the Orson Bed from Varaschin. It manages to feel modern and sleek while also feeling wonderfully sensuous and warm (thanks to it’s leather headboard). A great place to spend the night!

Finally, we offer this couch design, which is cool but maybe not so cozy. It comes to us from German designer Hannes Grebin who has created a range of living room furniture based on 1970s German domestic decor. The funny thing is that this couch, with its floral pattern and lace doilies, evokes memories of comfort, without necessarily providing the actuality of comfort. A fun, but slightly jarring concept!
