Are you looking for an unusual and classy look for your interior design?
Aviator furniture may be exactly what you need to create a masculine, retro-chic statement in your home or business space. Aviator furniture has a very distinctive design, using materials mainly found in the building of mid-twentieth century aircraft and, often, using actual parts reclaimed from some of the most iconic aircraft of that era.
There are several companies that have been making these items for decades. Each piece is made to order and each one is unique due to the fact that they are built from parts that have been recycled from aircraft that were in use for years. Every item of aviator furniture takes a long time to produce, from a few days for a lamp or wall mirror, to over 15 weeks for larger pieces, such as conference desks, large sculptures and beds. This level of craftmanship that goes into each item is part of what makes aviator furniture so desirable.
Another reason why aviator furniture is so collectable and makes such a good investment is because supplies are limited. Genuine vintage aircraft are becoming scarce so, supplies of ‘raw materials’ that these manufacturers can use are drying up. Some aviator furniture companies are already having to start using parts from more modern aircraft such as retired 474’s. This means that many existing pieces are the last of their kind, making them even more desirable to collectors and increasing their value.
If you want to create a design theme, or you are simply looking for an eye-catching centre-piece that is both a talking point and actually has some history to it, aviator furniture and accessories, not only fit the bill, they will also be a great investment that will continue to increase in value.
