The airplane stands in the pantheon of man’s most amazing engineering feats. So it seems fitting that the folks at Plane Pieces Inc. have developed a knack for recycling classic plane parts into stunning accents for the home. Thanks to relationships with prop manufacturers, repair shops, and designers — they collect and polish vintage parts into limited edition sculptures, furniture, and lights, all with a decidedly art deco flair. The retention desk lamp above is one of our favorite pieces from their current collection and features a vintage retention nut and piston from a Cessna 182 Skylane airplane propeller. Only 35 are available, and each lamp is hand engraved on the bottom. When it comes to adding unique style to your crib, it doesn’t get any better than this. Check out their full collection by hitting the price link below.
