Inspired by streamlined World War II fighter planes, the Restoration Hardware Aviator Wing desk is a shining swoop of metal, its shape mimicking the bent wing of a plane. Poised as if for take-off, it features a polished aluminum patchwork exterior accented with steel screws, built around a solid hardwood frame. Canvas-lined shelves offer an elegant finish to the minimalistic storage area. Only $2,195 at Restoration Hardware.
Of course, you will need someplace to sit while checking your flight plans, so plan on spending another $849 for the matching Devon Spitfire Leather Chair. Wheels up!
