Avery Janella. Sofa. May 06th , 2018.
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.
Cor furniture takes lounging to another level with the Lava Sofa. In collaboration with designers Kristen Antje Hoppert and Steffen Kroll of Studop Vertijet, the Lava is both a work of art and a piece of furniture. The possibilities are endless as the soft, upholstered mats transform even the floor into part of the sofa.
These two pieces, a rocking chair and a loveseat, were designed by Scott Wilson and are from the Purity line of sofas and chairs. The designs are characterized by highly pronounced curves. They are made of steel for strength and durability, and are covered with a polyurethane mesh. Although they look very modern, the rocking chair could use some armrests.
The Sitscape is a seating zone nearly 20 feet long. The form transforms the usual use of a couch; the design is based on specific seating positions and smooth transformations between them. Based on people’s preferred relaxing positions, the manufacturer generated six basic positions and formed a perfect fit for them. Consequently, the Sitscape provides familiar possibilities for relaxing.
