It was only a matter of time before IKEA ventured into coffins. Artist Joe Scanlan has created simple coffins for $15,000--or a book for $27.50 that tells you how to make your own coffin from IKEA parts for less than $400.

Joe Scanlan's artist statement advocates staging death in times of personal turmoil or rebirth like changing careers.

"Whether natural selection, death with dignity, or suicide, intimations of death have gotten artists through many a hard night.

Staging death is also an effective way to express a wish, foment resistance, or change careers.

You can enjoy the same piece of mind by investing in your eventual demise. Here at Things That Fall we offer three different burial options. Custom is an elegant and unique vessel crafted in Australia entirely from Tasmanian Blackwood and shipped to you." Stats for Flat-Pack Funerals Trending: Older & Average
