Eerie Accoutrements...

If you're in the market for that morbidly interesting piece of furniture for any room in your home, look no further.

The creations at Coffin Couches are a unique way of bringing life to old things. Since law prohibits the resale of coffins by funeral homes to the general public, these pieces are bought in Southern California by the company and revamped into leather upholstered seating and perched atop six cast iron legs.

If you're looking for something other than seating, be sure to check out Casket Furniture. They offer a wide selection of hand-crafted pieces for a variety of uses.

Either way, you can add a touch of whimsical macabre to any decor.

OK, that would be cool. As far as sitting on something that was once used, I wouldn't like that but if they made a couch look like a coffin (as in the pictures) that would be neat. I would probably go nuts with purchasing like items if I had the money. Odd but really cool and unique.

Many of these laws concerning the funeral business are designed to aid that industry and have given direct rise to the inflated cost of funerals. For instance, in most places, it is illegal to purchase coffins directly from the factory. It's a sad testament to the power of special interest groups and lobbies on an easily corrupted government.

On a lighter note: SWEET! I think that is just a really cool piece of furniture. Two thumbs up! :-D
