Art of the skies: company creates sensational furniture using airplane parts
Have you considered having a wheel (with tire!) Of a giant Boeing 747 as a coffee table in your home? Or maybe an armchair made using the hull of a 737 turbine? If you are an aviation fan, your answer will probably be a resounding yes, but if you are not, you might agree after seeing the furniture made by Fallen Furniture.
The name, analyzing coldly, sounds kind of sadistic ("Fallen Furnishings" in that same sense as you thought), but the quality and look of the products offered by the British company are to leave anyone jaw-dropping, whether you're a fan of subject or not. They use authentic pieces of civil and military aircraft and rework them manually to create true artwork for home décor.
Check out some of the items sold by Fallen Furniture:
Armchair made using a Boeing 737 turbine

So, would you buy any of these pieces produced by Fallen Furniture? They do not give you any pricing information, they just emphasize that all parts go through extensive handwork to have an extremely sophisticated and luxurious finish. Perhaps the maxim here is that "if you have to ask how much it costs, you can't buy it."
