Californian company Motoart spends hours transforming wings, doors and engine cowls into stylish furniture.
Many of the parts require more than 100 hours of cutting, grinding, buffing and polishing before they are ready for purchase.
The company’s bomber seats even come with the original ejector pin and ‘remove before flight’ warning tag.
Dave Hall, joint owner of Motoart, based next to Los Angeles International Airport, said:
“The mile high beds are very popular with men – and they are almost always bachelors.”
“The bed frames are made from the tail fins of a DC-9 aircraft.”
“We only have 12 of the ejector seats left, so they are priced at $12,000 each.”
Motoart has produced items for A-list celebrities, royalty in the Middle East, and big business clients including Microsoft and Boeing.
Mr Hall 45, set up Motoart in 2001 with Donovan Fell, 64.
The business now employs 17 people and takes in around $40 million a year.
Mr Hall said “Donovan had his doubts at first, but we cleaned the propellors up and sold them for $10,000 a piece – so we knew we were on to a winner.”
“The scrap parts make up ancient aircraft history. The engineering that went into them is incredible and we only enhance that.”
“Why wouldn’t you want to own a piece of history that looks this good?”
