Classic Furniture for Your Classic Garage

One of the things I always loved about the TV show Vega$ was that Dan Tanna could drive his T-bird right into the house. I mean, who wouldn't want to look at it? So when I came across this company on the internet that makes furniture out of classic cars, I had to write about it.

Yes, actual cars, not replicas or reproductions. So if your garage is somewhere you hang out, rather than just somewhere you park your car, you might want to check out Classic Couches to get some furniture to sit on or work at. Each piece is custom-built with real parts, restored to showroom condition. According to their contact sheet, that includes contract grade interiors, new chrome plating, clear coat paint, restored steel and—possibly coolest of all—working lights. Sweet!

They’ll source the cars for you, or they can work with a car you provide. While I’d hate to see something rare turned into a bar, I think it’s a great idea for anything relatively common. You can check out more of their work on their Facebook page. I’m rather partial to the Cadillac desk myself. And if I had the space, I’d love one of the car diner booths. With a vintage Wurlitzer to go with it, of course.
