Default I want a coffin in my living room!

Seriously.

If I ever so much money that I don't know what to do with all of it, I'm totally getting one of these. Although the whole "exchange of fluids" part is a little unsettling.

That's a pretty wicked write up! Not sure if I want to be in the "biohazard scene".



We at Coffincouches.com have the mindset of thinking "Green" and we know it is different but we strongly believe in recycling. Our niche happens to be 18 gauge steel coffins which we collected from local funeral homes primarily in Southern California. It is a health and safety law that funeral homes cannot resell used coffins to the general public. We approached funeral directors with the attitude of recycling. These coffins are not used for burial due to slight cosmetic inconsistencies. They are reconfigured and modified resulting in a finished product - a unique one a kind coffin couch. If you notice (although it may be too small) the six cast iron heavy duty legs are embossed with the universal biohazard insignia. The reason we utilize this sign is because safety is our utmost concern. If you are not aware, once a human body is placed in a coffin it is considered biohazard tissue. The legs have the embossed insignia for precautionary reasons in the event body fluids are exchanged on these coffins. Perhaps you would feel safe knowing that you are in designated biohazard scene!
Ha!!

I wonder if I could make that arrangement with a local home to make my DJ case from one less than perfect coffin they use for display.

It is pretty cool!

not quite what I had in mind when I heard "couch" and "exchange of fluids," but very cool nonetheless



^(sorry, had to)

Well don't stop with the couch (or car in the case of Xanthus).

If I'm gonna chill on a couch that bodily fluids have been exchanged on, I want to be the one exchanging them.
