65 Unconventional Caskets

From Eco-Friendly Burials to Car-Shaped Coffins

— April 26, 2014 — Art & Design
Whether you're looking for a way to go out with a bang or know how much your loved one would have liked a quirky coffin, these unconventional caskets offer a plethora of choice for distinct ways of burial.

To be sure, not all of these are caskets in the traditional sense. Some are jewelry boxes inspired by this slightly macabre object, while others are even sofas. It seems as if death is not the only thing inspiring the use of this object. However, one has to be sure not to make fun of the passing of a loved one, and should only use these designs if they are certain it's something that would be appreciated.

From chocolate bar coffins to designer caskets, these provide a large array of choice for everyone.
