Shelves For Life were designed by William Warren to explore the idea of sentimentality. By using coffin components as shelving for personal possessions during life, the designer hopes that people will think more about the importance, place, and durability of belongings.

The shelving is oak veneered plywood and machine cut to the end-user's measurements.

Implications - The Shelves For Life are meant to stand up on the floor and don't come assembled, since you can make one out of two things. You can make the coffin right away or assemble the shelving unit to look less creepy. Surely vampire fans would love these creepy coffin shelving units. They would certainly make for some interesting home decor that would definitely spark conversations among guests to your home.
