You Can Own a 737 Cowling Chair — and Other Furniture Crafted From Airplane Parts
“C reated from the engine cowling of an Boeing 737, this colossal, luxurious chair, spins weightlessly, on its highly polished spun aluminium base. Stood in its original orientation, this immense, captivating structure, is the opitome of luxury seating. The epic proportions of the high gloss flawlessly finished shell and dark interior upholstered in the highest quality leather, frame the hand mirror polished cowling opulently. This unique and impressive masterpiece would form centre of any room.”

That is how the advertising copy reads for this chair from a company called Fallen Furniture — located in Bath in the United Kingdom — which claims to use “reclaimed, authentic aircraft parts, from both military and civilian aircraft steeped in history, Fallen Furniture take pride in exploring the most innovative ways to breathe new life into these remarkable feats of engineering to design and create pieces of art and furniture.”
As with MotoArt Studios — a competitor based in El Segundo, California which creates and sells such items as the Mile High Bed and other types of furniture and art crafted from the parts of the wings of a McDonnell Douglas DC-9 aircraft; the piece of a fuselage of a Boeing 707 aircraft; or the engine cowling of a Boeing 747 aircraft as some examples — pricing is not available at the official Internet web site of Fallen Furniture. You must submit a request by completing a form and submitting it to await a response.
While I think that the furniture and art from Fallen Furniture is rather cool, I personally have no interest in purchasing and owning any of it. I cannot even imagine the cost to ship the item overseas — never mind what is the cost of the item itself.
Earth Day was two days ago; and recycling airplane parts to create stylish furniture — rather than have them sitting in a desert or a landfill somewhere — is a great way to mitigate and even avoid further pollution of the environment.
