If you know me well then you know that I have had a lifelong love affair with aircraft aluminum. I like the color, the texture, the rivets, the mirrored finish that comes with some polishing compound and elbow grease. Heck, if I were Lady Gaga I would wear an aircraft aluminum gown down a red carpet. So you can imagine my excitement when I came across the following WWII aircraft inspired furniture line from Restoration Hardware...
|Look at those lines...how could you not write great works of philosophy or|
the great American novel at that desk? I am confident that this desk is all
that is standing between me and a Pulitzer Prize.
|And who wouldn't want to be called to my office just for a chance to sit |
in one of these chairs?
|This has "Whitny's Sock Drawers" written all over it!|
|Just imagine the possibilities...I'm thinking this would be a good place for |
my1950s - 1960s television westerns DVD boxed set collections.
So if any of you are looking for the perfect birthday gift for me and have, oh, say, about $5,000 to drop, then look no further! There just aren't words to express how much I love this furniture line. Perhaps it is because they remind me of the five hunks of surplus aircraft grade aluminum I love above all others...my five vintage Airstream trailers parked on my family's land outside Yosemite National Park.
Unfortunately, my Airstreams are in the High Sierras and I am in Los Angeles at the moment and unable to photograph them but here are photographs of what they kind of look like based on some old pictures I took and ones I stole off of the internet based on their years and models...
|This is actually my 69 Ambassador Land Yacht|
I call her the "Irma Louise"
|The '58 Flying Cloud I have christened the "Magnolia Rae"|
|My '56 Flying Cloud is called the "Aurora Gail"|
|My '54 Flying Cloud kind of looks like this...and I call it|
the "Thelma Lou"
