And now for something completely different.
Coffin couches – it’s a wonder no one thought of it before.
In fact they’re the brainchild of LA-based Vidal Herrera, who coincidentally runs an autopsy service.
We’d like to believe that they exhume the coffins at midnight, but actually they buy in unused and unwanted boxes.
After removing the lids, adding legs, and a bit of reinforcement, Fester’s your uncle, and the coffins are ready for design and upholstery.
In terms of styling, DFS this isn’t.
For example, there’s the Las Vegas Bike Fest:
And how about the Gypsy Rose?
Or something a little more, erm, sombre, with the Green Lantern?
These sofas are certainly a talking piece, and sadly they don’t come cheap.
But then again, you can’t take it with you.
Couch coffins, from around $3500.
