Aviator Wing Desk by Restoration Hardware
getting a piece of furniture that’s repurposed from, say, a WWII aircraft’s wing is cool but we can’t help but to think about what crap had beaten through those wings. bad idea. besides, a war is never a good thing to reminiscent about. however, if you have one desk that’s inspired by World War II fighter planes (note: not made of real aircraft parts) such as the Aviator Wing Desk by Restoration Hardware, then that’s an entirely different story. this shiny example is shaped like the bent wing of an aircraft and features hand-built of patchworked panels of polished aluminum, complete with accents of exposed steel screws (typical of airplane of that era), over a solid hardwood frame. finally, integrated into one of the ‘legs’ of the desk are three shelves lined with black cotton canvas that provide ample storage for your mandatory office paraphernalia. do note that these desks’ aluminum is lightly distressed for that awesome vintage look and hence, nicks, dings, small scratches and other imperfections are purely intentional and gives this item that extra character and one-of-the-kind look. it is one of those kind of desk that we would not hesitate to put down our hard-earned dough for if we have that extra $1,750 to splurge. and the matching chair you see there? it’s called the Devon Spitfire Leather Chair and it sold separately for between $795 – $1,145, depending on the material you opt for.
