If you thought that it's impossible for an airplane to have a comfortable seat, you're mistaken. Fallen Furniture—a design company that uses reclaimed aircraft parts to create functional appliances—has recently unveiled a chair that has us reaching for our wallets. In short, they took a cowling from a Boeing 737—the silver removable covering that houses the airplane's engine—and turned it into a retro (and super comfortable looking) chair we'd love to take a nap in.

This isn't the only airplane-focused design they have on their roster. They also use airplane cowlings to create conversation-starting bars (which can also be used as reception desks). Because of Fallen Furniture, a world exists where airplane fuselages become clocks or wall art and escape hatches become coffee tables—a touch of whimsy for a design that really doesn't have much life once permanently grounded. Sound like the perfect addition to your room? You can check out the 737 Cowling Chair (and all of their other awesome designs) here.
