Californian based company Restoration Hardware drew inspiration from “the gleaming nose cones and fuselages of mid-20th-century aircraft” to create the beautiful, shining chest you can see below. They named it the Blackhawk Chest as a reminder of the elegant and bold shape of a vintage aircraft brought inside to adorn a residence that will surely be subject to admiration. Made from polished aluminium panels wrapped around solid hardwood and accentuated by rough-looking steel screws, the chest has three drawers lined with black cotton canvas. All the dents and small imperfections were especially created to give a vintage look to this amazing piece of furniture: “Aluminium has a matte finish that’s lightly distressed for a vintage look; intentional nicks, dings, small scratches and other imperfections are to be expected and add to the character and uniqueness of each item.” This is the perfect piece for an aviation enthusiast, surprising every buyer with a unique chest design built to create a glamorous, industrial atmosphere in the room. Keep it glamorous by occasionally buffing it with metal polish.
