So You Want an Airplane Seat? Better Try Restoration Hardware's 'Aviator' Series

Stick this to your Pinterest boards: Restoration Hardware has a whole collection of furniture inspired by retro aviation. We're talking World War-era steel and rivets and distressed leather. It's Amelia Earhart style and though we can't imagine it'd be great to outfit an entire room with the pieces, a single item here or there would be so awesome. 

View the whole collection here. Prices range from $675 for an ottoman (but it's some ottoman) to $7,290 for a full leather sofa with chaise. Personally, we're already counting our pennies to get Jaunted HQ outfitted with the "1950s Copenhagen Spitfire Chair, a replica of the classic Arne Jacobsen "Egg" chair done up in antique ebony or slate leather, and backed by aluminum plates mimicking the structure of a vintage aircraft. 

We know that serious aviation geeks seek out actual airplane seats for conversation pieces, but really—no one wants to sit in those in the best of times.  Enjoy the interior design envy when you finally get around to throwing that Howard Hughes-theme cocktail shindig. Oh, and invite us?
