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.
The fabric for the Pixel Sofa has been picked up by Danish manufacturer Kvadrat, based on a concept of Cristian Zuzunaga, a Royal College of Art graduate. The contemporary couch is sure to grab attention by virtue of its wide spectrum of colors. High-tech and creative types would love something like this in their studio/office.
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.
