DC-10 Cowling Jet Bed

Oh boy. The magic of the sky meets the magic of where the magic happens. MotoArt, a group of daring-with-a-touch-of-devious mile-high artists, recycles old jet parts into exclusive, flashy pieces of furniture and home decor. Perhaps their series of Jet Beds, forged from the likes of DC-10 cowlings, 747 engine nacelle cowlings, C-124 cargo plane floors, and DC-9 rear stabilizers, can be best described as testosterone-engorged purveyors of Bow chicka wow wow.

The DC-10 Cowling Bed encircling the blonde who looks like she's going to get a massive crick in her neck sleeping like that began its career as a 380-passenger McDonnell Douglas jet. Today, its 105" diameter and concentric 84" round mattress envelop dudes with the need, the need for artistic representations of speed...and their fine lady friends. DC-10 Cowling Beds are custom fabricated, with options of exterior finishes including mirror polished, painted, or satin. They also sport sexy red LEDs at their base and port holes. The behemoth cylinder breaks into two pieces for easier (but probably still an enormous pain in the ass) maneuvering up stairs and through doorways.

MotoArt's second round bed, an Italian stallion with a semicircular headboard hailing from a 747 engine nacelle cowling, also has an 84" diameter mattress and box spring. The headboard is finished with acrylic automotive paint, mirror polished leading nose ring, and green Plexiglas end caps that reveal its internal structuring.

For going horizontal on the horizontal, the C-124 Cargo Bed fuses together two cargo plane floors, replete with the original tie-down rings that once kept many tons of military cargo just like the sleeping quarters promise to keep anyone who slumbers in them: snug as a bug in a rug. C-124 frames are custom cut to accommodate the buyer's choice of bed size, and then sanded to a raw finish. The footboard has leather padding and extra hooks. Mattress, straps, chains, and handcuffs are not included. No, I didn't make that last bit up to be clever. Those exact words actually appear in the listing.

Mile High Club members, frequent fliers, MVPs, and wannabes, this last incarnation is for you. The Mile High Bed combines two DC-9 rear stabilizers with a C-130 inner flap to produce a sleek, angularly skewed sleepy-and-sexy time locale just begging to make its way into the cavernous chambers of Hugh Hefner, David Hasselhoff, Steven Seagal, and Bill Clinton. It measures in at 11' long x 7'6" wide x 4'6" high. Surfaces are sanded and mirror-polished with 1/2" Plexiglas accents and internal LED lighting.

Jet Bed pricing is not listed on MotoArt's Website, but the beds are indeed for sale, and interested parties can make cost inquiries here.
