There is something weirdly appealing about the idea of curling up inside an engine cowling, especially if that engine cowling is no longer attached to a working aircraft and thus poses no threat. Plane Industries, a company based in Bath, England, is all about repurposing authentic aircraft parts to make beautiful and functional pieces for the home.
One of the company’s most notable pieces is a chair made from the engine cowling of a Boeing 737.

And if alcohol and aviation is a mix you’re fond of, then you’ll be delighted to learn that Fallen Furniture also offers a towering drinks cabinet made out of a R.A.F. MK1 Practice Cluster Bomb. This imposing piece stands at over eight feet tall and weighs 600 pounds.
