Cabernet Couch: Wine Jug Couch by Carlo Rossi


Photo: Carlo Rossi's JugSimple

That's the Cabernet Couch, made from 33 empty Cabernet jugs and vintage corduroy futon mattress for the winemaker Carlo Rossi.

In what can only be called a strange yet utterly fascinating effort to turn the image of wine jugs from being associated with drunk winos into haute couture, Carlo Rossi also has the Chardonnay Chandelier ("jug count: 33"), Burgundy Bookshelf (jug count: 28), Paisano Plasma TV Stand, and more.

42 years ago, Bob Dylan wrote one of his funniest odd songs, "Leopard-skin Pill-Box Hat." He claims that a hat matching that description "balances on your head just like a mattress balances on a bottle of wine."

Bob was always a prophet at all times...
