Luxury Design Tip: Matching Plated Parts to Aircraft Fabrics

Aircraft interior of private jet including aircraft seat fabric and metal parts

Every aspect of the aircraft interior for a private plane or business jet can be viewed as an opportunity to utilize color to create a cohesive look and feel. For aircraft interior designers, there is a unique opportunity to create a distinguished look by matching the color of aircraft seat fabric to the metal interior parts.

Think of this opportunity to achieve excellence the same way that you would match each unique piece in the interior of a home to create a welcoming experience for every guest who steps across the threshold.

Home is where the heart is, but flying privately above the distractions of everyday life is a different kind of fascinating experience not universally available. Like the home, it should be a special and sacred space. To that effect, a personal private aircraft should be expertly designed to be a home away from home where the intimate network of life happens.

The same level of comfort, coordinated aesthetics, and tranquility that is often painstakingly detailed in the home can also be replicated to a certain degree in a private aircraft. Gone are the days of drab uniform carpet and seat fabrics with limited plating colors available.

Today, thanks to advanced interior design capabilities and our expertise with aircraft interior parts at HighTech Finishing, aircraft interior designers can use an array of color options to create an impressive final product that will dramatically elevate the aircraft experience for your clients.

Consider a Holistic Approach to Aircraft Interior Design

To say that something is more than the sum of its parts is saying that the final product is better than you would expect from the individual parts. There is something in the way that disparate objects are combined to create a different quality that goes beyond the capabilities of the individual parts.

This concept in holism relates to the interior of a private aircraft to the effect that the total impression of each designed part interacting with one another should be greater than the effectiveness of the interior parts when acting in isolation from one another.

A custom metal finish on interior parts such as belt-buckle latches and door handles is exquisite on its own when selecting from any one of our 150+ decorative metal finishes. Complimenting tailored, client-specific interior leather and fabrics will help bring out the elegance of each selected metal finish.

This approach truly elevates the interior of the aircraft to flawless levels even for the most discriminating of tastes. The result is a seamless look and remarkable feel that captivates the eyes and awakens the senses.

Leverage Our Attention to Detail in Metal Finishing

When the interior of a house is designed, each piece is brought together in a specific manner. Each item acts flawlessly together, becoming more powerful in evoking a certain desired ambiance than if the items were in exclusivity from one another.

Most often is the case that one particular color, fabric, or favored piece becomes the design focal point, and everything else is curated around this item. A private aircraft is a luxurious extension of its owner’s home and should be no different in the way it is designed — with every detail accounted for to maximize the experience.

Whether the starting focal point is an opulent, textured, gold-flecked metal seat buckle, or a patterned plush carpet with hints of silvery threads, each interior piece can be — and ought to be — brought convincingly together to create a visually appealing cohesive look specifically designed for the customer’s desires.

At HighTech Finishing, we specialize in helping designers elevate the interior of the aircraft by capturing ideas and turning those ideas into solutions.
