Can You Guess What These Vases And Box Are For?

These pieces are beautiful, and yes, quite decorative, too. Hint: these will also help you “go” in style.

The finishes of these pieces are exotic, jewel-like, even: mosaic glass, Japanese glazes, steel, burnished wood, and mother-of-pearl.  Are these vases? Accessories? Jewelry boxes?

No, these are actually funerary urns from Comfortscape. In an effort to give the delicate “event” of death a stylish touch, sisters Tina Bonoan, Mari Bonoan Escaño, and Mailet Bonoan formed Comfortscape to help grieving relatives come up with a creative sendoff for their dearly departed.

“When our dad, then our mom, passed, we were in grief and could not put our act together. We wanted something…personalized. Luckily, our friends came to the rescue and brought our ideas to life,” says architect and designer Tina Bonoan. “We then realized that we could help others in the same situation in a unique and memorable way.”

The sisters create serene floralscapes and settings for wakes, using one-of-a-kind accessories and sophisticated floral styling, and taking into consideration the beloved’s hobbies or personal advocacies.

Comfortscape’s urns are beautiful pieces. “Cremation is becoming more accepted in the country, so I think there’s an untapped market out there,” says business entrepreneur Mari. “We noticed that there are not many choices of urns to encase the ashes. People would want something that best pays tribute to the life and memory of their loved ones.”

These urns are designed by noted artists Impy Pilapil and Pidge Reyes, potter Joey de Castro, award-winning designer Tony Gonzales, and Tina Bonoan.

Now who wouldn’t want to “go” in style? After all—in the end—we will all be heading the same way.
