RIP on Coffin Furniture

If you’re looking for an unusual decorating motif, read on.  It seems that graveyards and mortuaries are no longer the only settings where a coffin is appropriate.

Southern California company Coffin Couches take slightly used 18 gauge steel coffins, rejected for burial because of cosmetic inconsistencies, and create one of a kind couches.  The cast iron legs are embossed with the universal biohazard insignia since coffins which have held human remains are considered biohazardous.  Custom colors are available upon request.

The Casket Furniture Company offers a variety of furnishing items which can fit into your decor while you’re alive, and then be used to bury you when you pass.  Their philosophy is why spend all that money for something not enjoyed until after death when you can use it in life.

    Slightly used, slightly disturbing. Rejected for cosmetic inconsistencies, I’m sure the soil doesn’t mind. I’m studying mortuary analysis and its interesting to think about how in a couple hundred years, someone may find these empty coffins and the assumptions they would make about what we have chosen to bury (such as the bookshelf one). In a similar vein, you may be interested in the works of the late artist Kane Kwei and his son Samuel Kane Kwei of Ghana who specialize in funerary art. Their studio has made commissioned coffins in the shapes of mercedes, onions, etc. to reflect the occupations and interests of their clients.

    I like Anna’s points too- it is disturbing to have biohazard marks on your living room furniture I think.
