Aviation furniture has become increasingly popular during the twenty-one plus years MotoArt has been in business, and for good reason. Not only does it add a unique touch to any room, but it also gives a nod to the rich history of aviation. Whether you’re a seasoned aviation enthusiast or simply love the look, incorporating aviation furniture into your home or office decor is easier than you might think. Here are a few tips to get you started.
1. Start with a focal point
If you’re looking to make a statement, start with a focal point. This could be a vintage airplane propeller, an ejection seat as a desk chair, or even an entire wing as your desk or table. Whatever you choose, make sure it’s something that speaks to you and fits with the overall style of your home.
Consider a P-3 Orion Propeller Sculpture, which will capture the attention of visitors, without commanding too much space. If you have a large area to work with, consider a Beech 18 Elevator Table, one of MotoArt’s newest pieces.
2. Mix and match
Don’t be afraid to mix and match different aviation-inspired pieces. This could include a metal propeller with leather chairs or a glass coffee table with aluminum accents. By combining different textures and materials, you can create a truly unique look that reflects your personal style.
For inspiration, take a look at MotoArt’s aviation coffee tables, which offer the sleek, modern look of aircraft components and structures under glass.
3. Keep it simple
When it comes to aviation furniture, less is often more. Instead of trying to fill an entire room with aviation-inspired pieces, focus on one or two statement items that will stand out. This will help prevent your space from looking cluttered or overwhelming.
Adding an iconic desk, such as MotoArt’s Stearman Shorty Desk, will set your space apart from the rest with only one incredible piece.
4. Choose a color scheme
If you’re looking for a more cohesive look, consider choosing a color scheme. Aviation furniture often features natural metal tones, with elements of aluminum and touches of silver, copper, and brass, which pair well with warm, earthy hues or bamboo wood. By choosing a color palette, you can create a space that feels intentional and well-designed.
"My business clients are looking for unique, stunning, show stopping furniture that sparks a relaxed conversation and breaks the ice for a productive business meeting. And for aviators, there is no better way to display their passion for aviation than working at an executive desk fabricated from a rare vintage or commercial aircraft wing.” Ramona Cox - US Sales Rep for Motoart.”
5. Add aviation-inspired accents
In addition to larger furniture pieces, there are plenty of smaller accents you can add to your decor to give it an aviation-inspired feel. This could include vintage aviation posters, airplane models, or even a Piston Desk Clock. These accents can be a great way to tie your theme together and add personality to your space.
Incorporating aviation furniture into your decor can be a fun and exciting way to add a touch of personality to your office or home.
