Look at this magnificent piece of furniture. No, seriously, take a close look. It’s so shiny and beautiful and luxurious and aesthetically pleasing to the eyes. We wonder what it’s made out of…it looks somewhat familiar, right?
We’ve see that circular shape before…but where?
If, for whatever reason, this magnificent chair reminds you of a recent trip you took (on a plane), here’s why: it’s made out of a freaking airplane’s engine cowling–specifically a Boeing 737. All we have to say is beau-ti-ful.
This work of art is created by Fallen Furniture, a company that takes aircraft parts and turns them into aviation furniture. Here are some more beauties.
There’s the fuselage clock
The exhaust lamp
EXHAUST LAMP AIRCRAFT PART: EXHAUST FROM A BAE 146. Standing over 6ft tall and taking inspiration from the A.E Cremer Parisian lights of the 1950s, this piece exudes character and personality. The head undergoes a process of sanding, polishing and heating to create a sea of blues, golds, and purples that radiate from the remarkable exhaust cone light head of this unique piece. The polished stainless steel stand has been designed and manufactured from the ground up, carefully blending minimalism and functionality whilst the Italian holophane glass radiates a warm glow. #aviationgeek #aviationphotography #avation #design #upcycle
And this exquisite cluster-bomb-turned-cabinet
THE BOMB AIRCRAFT PART: R.A.F. MK1 PRACTICE CLUSTER BOMB Standing more than eight feet tall and weighing 600 pounds, the mirror-polished Cluster Bomb Drinks Cabinet is a truly unique piece of furniture. Behind the gleaming 1970s missile fuselage, three glass shelves revolve around a gold-plated spindle; while in the base, a sliding platform built from lacquered American walnut conceals an armoury of custom-made cocktail utensils. With its potent fusion of industrial heritage and high-end craftsmanship, this breathtaking cabinet is without equal. #aviationgeek #aviationphotography #avation #design #upcycle
Yep, we want it all. Most of these bad boys are made to order so we’re sure they cost a pretty penny.
