C. J. Boots Adds Five New Models to Craft Casket Line
Repurposing and Decorating Guru Provides Inspiration and Guidance for Product Line
Anderson, IN – Inspiration can come from a variety of sources – a walk in the woods, a sunset on a lake or the shower in the morning. For Chris Boots of C. J. Boots Casket Company, one of the country’s leading manufacturers of solid hardwood, veneer and cremation caskets, inspiration for new and innovative casket models is found in a barn in Lapel, Indiana.
“When I first met Jennifer (Spitz) of Distressed by Design and toured her workshop located inside a barn in Lapel, I felt an immediate connection,” stated Boots, President of C. J. Boots Casket Company. “She provides inspiration and the barn acts as a great stimulus; C. J. Boots is indeed fortunate to have this creative relationship with Jennifer.”
This uncommon arrangement has resulted in five new models to C.J. Boots’ Craft Casket line:
Harvest Pine – a solid pine facetted top casket featuring a rough barn finish and rosetan crepe interior with barn scene head panel
Going Home Pine – a solid pine round top casket offering a satin finish and white crepe interior with
bird images on the lugs and a head panel offering birds and the words, “Going Home”
Whitewash Oak – a solid oak facetted top casket with a rough barn, white wash finish and a white
crepe interior with a “Lived, Laughed, Loved” head panel
Antique Pine – a solid pine flat top casket with a satin finish and rosetan crepe interior with a baker
pipe head panel
Chamberlain Popular – a solid hardwood round top casket with a satin finish and champagne linen interior with a doric head panel. A beautiful unique antique blue color adorns the exterior of this casket.
Spitz’s influence can best be seen in the Antique Pine, Chamberlain and Whitewash Oak models. Each of these caskets offers an exterior with a distinctive distressed wood appearance and other unique design features.
“I’ve always had a great deal of respect and admiration for funeral directors and the funeral profession,” commented Spitz. “I look forward to assisting Chris with the design and look of additional caskets in the Craft Casket line that can help play a role in the memorialization process for grieving families.”
