ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Just the thing you need if you have to deal with driving instructors from Johannesburg.
Dangit, I thought it was “Coffin soda“. Now I’m disappointed.
Oh lord, why am I suddenly having more Young Ones flashbacks..?
@Roy Trumbull – The ending of that story is so very awesome.
So, when you die, can this convert back into a coffin thereby sparing your survivors the expense?
Thank heavens for Habitat Sofa-coffins!
The Young Ones caught a South African vampire in one of these. About 5:15 in…
A sofa-coffin (from Habitat, apparently) featured in the Nasty episode of the Young Ones in the early ‘eighties: http://tvtanline.blogspot.com/2007/12/young-ones-nasty-2×03.html
OOOhh bad scary.the model looks a little too undead for comfort.
I think I’d be nervous about taking a nap on that thing for fear that somebody might stake me.
Couch looks best while wearing ‘stitches choker’.
It doesn’t look very comfortable…
Because The Young Ones were fantastic :D
@ #5- I thought it said “Coffin soda” also. Weird.
Have we got a video?
Makes any room more Munsters-like.
Release the bats!
While it looks very cool (and in purple! â™¥), I require furniture that I sit on to be functionally loungable. That looks like it’d be comfortable for about two minutes. Maybe five if I had a sweatshirt on.
I love it…I think.
Makes me want to start LARP’ing the vampire thing…kinda.
What happened to the corpse?
A piece of black humor by Carroll M. Capps (AKA C.C. MacApp). Through a computer error the advertising manager for a casket company gets 100 times his normal budget and makes death the new cool thing.

I wonder how would be the coffe table
This innovation will save a lot of trouble for your next of kin if you happen to die while watching T.V. in your living room.
