Convert sandbag barricades into beautiful and comfortable sofas

In principle it might seem that sandbags that are used in wars and emergency situations to make barricades they are not very decorative, however, if we change the color and the sheath they could be perfect for the decoration of a relaxation area. It is a curious change in the interpretation of something that initially has negative connotations.

The advantage that these sandbags have, is that they can be placed in a thousand ways, so that they allow us to build a sofa or several individual seats, or simply an irregular rest area ideal for the relaxation of children and adults. We could place them in the living room or in the children's play room, which you will surely love.

Sometimes it seems amazing what a simple color change can do in an object, if we think of brown bags or military green we automatically identify them with a situation of risk or danger. However, if we visualize them in cheerful colors like fuchsia or orange or with mixtures of various shades, they can provide pleasant sensations.

In the images we see them placed in a somewhat gloomy environment, a prison cell, but even there they bring a touch of joy, if we take them to a bright space with blank walls the result will be even better. On the other hand, they also intend to remember that, in the face of comfort in which we live, there are situations of risk and permanent danger that others live in many parts of the world, unfortunately, of course the contrast is more than curious.
