At first glance, the Phantom Couch might look like a broken bathtub that was made into a couch. The semi-transparent body, luminescent and colorful, is a sheet of milky PMMA resting on a tubular framework of chromed steel. Some people use large pieces of furniture to hide or cover up things; but with the Phantom, this is not possible.
Patchwork is most often associated with quilts. Once a craft born out of economic necessity, patchwork quilts still enjoy widespread popularity. However, British designer Lisa Whatmough of Squint Limited has adapted the patchwork technique as upholstery material for her fun and funky bespoke furniture line. Just one of her chic furniture pieces will brighten up any dark corner. These are extraordinarily vivid focal pieces.
The folks at Coffin Couches have managed to transform 18-gauge steel coffins (from funeral homes in Southern California) into designer Coffin Couches. At first, these sofas look like a luxurious piece of leather furniture until you realize they are made from actual coffins. Fans of “The Addams Family” will love them.
