Restoration Hardware has a new line of magnificent Jet Age-inspired furniture. For example, the aviator chair above is inspired by World War II fighter planes, and wrapped in aluminum airplane skin. And at left, they've recreated a classic mid-century Danish chair design and also skinned it in metal. The chairs are available in a variety of upholstery options for (gulp) $1500 or so.
