How the material of death infuses life into your interiors?

When it comes to coffins, the only thing that pops in to my head is a man wearing black robe with fangs that are jumping to bite you. Well, in any case the only thing that you can relate coffins is with death, funerals and graveyards. It is definitely not easy for you to sit on a chair that looks like a coffin. As far as I am concerned, the idea itself cropped from my overconfident liking of all things deadly and dark. As far as you are concerned, I will make it sure that after you finish reading this post, you also fall in the category of overconfident lovers of coffins and other things that come related with it.

Coffin Couches

A blissful resting peace for times to come. With these eco-friendly materials and awesome colorful design it will also infuse much wanted life in your homes with uniqueness. Coffins collected from funeral homes mainly from southern California were not used due to little inconsistencies and are modified to form the finished products from Coffin Couches.

  • Coffin is made from recycled 18 gauge steel
  • Constructed of 4″ heavy duty padding and durable leather or vinyl
  • Inner 1/4″ square rubber tubing for extra back and seat support
  • Underside has a 6.5′ x 2.5′ x 1″ steel frame
  • Six steel legs able to withstand approx. 900 lbs.
  • Custom colors available upon request
  • Custom airbrushed

The company closed in 2022 but it can still be purchased in specialized furniture stores

Too late or too early for the Halloween? It is definitely not. The coffin Couch by Von Erickson is just so perfect for homes who want to have a unique furniture design. This couch has velvet covered foam cushion and uses a metal spring construction seat. To make it like a coffin, the backrest con be completely folded down for a fully shut position. Made from unused coffins due to some slight cosmetic damage, the coffin couch are comfortable enough as each of the unused coffins are reconfigured for comfort purposes. Some may find it awkward to use, but some will surely find it unique especially those who are doing funeral service

Coffin Cabinet

This cabinet is handmade and has a creepy image on its cover that is screen printed.

Here’s a hand-crafted coffin cabinet, constructed out of hard poplar with the classic nossy image silkscreened on the lid. the coffin is secured with glued-up 3/16″ woods dowels for extra strength–no cheap nailgun brads here. all coffins come with hardware and hanging instructions, and measures approx 18″ tall by 9″ wide by 3″ deep.

Coffin Shelves

Designed by William Warren, these shelves can be converted in to a functional coffin when needed.

Some might think having your own coffin in your house is morbid, but not William Warren. In fact, the furniture and product designer created Shelves for Life, a build-it-yourself Ikea style bookcase that, after you’ve expired, can be reassembled into a coffin. Not only is it good for the environment, it’ll be one less thing your family has to worry about when dealing with your remains. The kits sell for $579 (or 350 GBP) a piece and come stained in a classic blonde wood which just begs for some serious customization. Creepy and awesome.

Recommended Articles

We have some articles that I would like to recommend to the readers.

Foundation Repair And Maintenance

We have described here the type of foundations, what is a foundation inspection and what should be included in a good foundation inspection checklist. We can discover problems in the foundation to make us ask ourselves if it is safe to live in a house with foundation problems and what entails a foundation repair, if it is covered by homeowners insurance and its costs.

To repair a foundation, the service provider requires an underpinning system using piers: push piers vs helical piers where helical piers are preferable for residential real estate objects, despite their costs. Also when you compare helical piers with concrete footings, we can determine that helical piers are more cost-efficient than concrete footings, in my opinion.

We have water in the crawlspace: I explain what to do when the crawlspace is flooded, if it is normal to have water in the crawlspace after a heavy rain, and the importance to perform a crawlspace waterproofing thereafter, normally by installing a vapor barrier.

I describe how to improve the air quality in the crawlspace and to accomplish this, I am reluctant to use lime powder in this article, where I explain the pros and cons, as I would be using lime powder only to avoid the dangers of raw sewage under house.

We discuss the sill plate replacement cost and how to avoid the outdoor sump pump freezing, because it happened to me once.

There are always new methods for repairing foundations. One of them that we investigate here is the Powerbrace foundation repair method.

Animals can be a problem when they live near the foundation: In the following articles we describe how to remove them and how to prevent them from digging and burrowing. The articles are about animals digging holes around the foundation or when they are burrowing below concrete, below a concrete slab, or between gaps in concrete footings, for example.

In regards to basements, I describe how to solve the hydrostatic pressure in the basement. I provide to you some reasons of why we will need a certified specialist to deal with a risky sewage backup in the basement because bacteria survives a long time in a contaminated sewage and also we discuss how to deal with a basement drain backing up in general and when it happens when flushing the toilet, something that is not a DYI project at all.

Concrete

I explain here the process of concrete lifting or concrete raising, that can be done through mudjacking or slabjacking. We recommend the latter, which injects polyurethane foam.

Framing

There are some interesting articles here, in this Framing category. I refer to sistering floor joists, as a methodology to reinforce existing floor joists with some emphasis on sistering 2x6 floor joists or sistering with 2x8 instead, and about the building code for sistering joists, for sistering rafters, and the code for notching floor joists.

Water Heaters

About water heaters, we have a complete guide about water heater types and their installation requirements, about power vent water heaters, and venting in tankless devices, and I also explain in detail the difference between a mobile home water heater and a standard water heater. I also describe in detail how to remove the heating element without an element wrench using just a socket, and how to protect your water heater against the effects of hard water, and how to fix leaking.

We have some few reviews when a water heater falls into our hands, such as the Titan product portfolio, Navien lineup, the Titan N-160 reviews, the most praised by our readers, and the Rinnai R94LSi .

I study several water heater capacities and tested 20-gallon water heater units, and a comparison between point of use and tankless water heaters.

We open a tankless water heater to show how does it look like inside a tankless water heater.

After the lifecycle of the water heater is over, I reveal to you different options to proceed with its disposal.
