Dying for a Nap

Gl_04 Coffin Couches offers funereal furniture ideal for zombie-esque zone-outs during Halloween movie marathons. The company starts with caskets mortuaries would normally throw away because they have cosmetic defects or were used for display. (Don't worry about the biohazard decal the couch sports--that only means it briefly cradled a body, not that it was buried.) Workers then cut away the lid and one side and attach legs, converting caskets into macabre, Munsters-style couches: creepy but creative reuse.
