This innovative chair marries aircraft engineered quality with industrial furniture design, resulting in an unconventionally eye-catching centerpiece. The 737 Cowling Chair was designed by Fallen Furniture, a company that specializes in producing aviation furniture out of authentic, reclaimed aircraft parts. This particular masterpiece was made out of a repurposed engine cowling taken from a Boeing 737.
The chair has some staggering dimensions—the piece is 2m by 2m (about 2.2 yards tall and wide), which means one would have to think twice about how to get it inside a building. With an interior upholstery of black leather that complements a polished shell exterior attached to a swiveling aluminum base. An eclectic mixture of aircraft design and interior furniture with a modern art twist, the 737 Cowling Chair certainly makes for a distinctive addition to any room.

Margherita is a line of leather accessories and jewelry by Lebanese Designer Ghita Abi Hanna.
Margherita strives to create unique, bold designs, for the most part carefully hand-crafted by Lebanese artisans. Margherita’s designs incorporate architectural lines through different material, offering hand made, timeless items. The company’s fashion forward approach targets a trend-setting customer, courageous enough to stand out and wear bold statement pieces.
The featured collection was created in collaboration with Vea, a fashionably responsible brand that creates wearable accessories made from upcycled inner tire tubes. Each piece is handmade from sterling silver or gold plated brass and used bicycle tire rubber that come together nicely to create a statement piece of jewelry.
The forms are kept simple and geometrical, allowing the black rubber to create volume and stark contrast with the brushed silver or gold.
