Funky Find Of The Week: Coffin Couches
Yep, that's right. These are sofa's made from actual recycled 18 gauge steel coffins.
One will run you $3500.00 USD and you can choose from several options, even a Dodger Blue one (for you baseball fans).
Freaked out by the idea of sitting on a "recycled" modified coffin? No need for the heebie jeebies..... It is a health and safety law that funeral homes cannot resell used coffins to the general public. So, Coffin Couches approached funeral directors with the attitude of recycling. The coffins they use for couches are not used for burial due to slight cosmetic inconsistencies. They are reconfigured and modified resulting in a finished product.
Okay, how hard was it to refrain from titling this post "Sofas To Die For" ?
