When it comes to furniture made from reclaimed materials, many of us do not prefer showing it off in our living room. All those who think along the same lines can give recycled aircraft furniture a try. Made out of old unused aircraft parts, it’s a kind of recycled furniture that will become an attention grabber in any living room. Case in point the Gipsy Queen Coffee Table by DappR Aviation.
Measuring 126W x 46H x 42D cm, Gipsy Queen Coffee Table is made from the decommissioned engine section of a de Havilland Gipsy Queen Engine. Highlighted with original engine parts, the coffee table features a solid elm wood top. The engine is thoroughly cleaned and clear coated, while legs are handcrafted and painted grey for an industrial style look.
The Gipsy Queen was a British made six-cylinder engine developed by De Havilland, one of Britain’s aviation pioneers, for military use on aircraft’s like the Dragon Rapide and Percival Protector. These engines hold historical significance and after conversion into furniture, these units become true centerpieces for any interior.
If you’re an aviation buff and wanted a souvenir to express your fascination, the Gipsy Queen Coffee Table available for £995 ($1,310) at DappR Aviation is what you wanted.
