Wood veneer is the usual go-to material for accentuating surfaces in private-jet interiors, but a Hong Kong–based jet owner enlisted Flying Colours—a Canadian company that specializes in customized business-aircraft interiors and whose custom Sikorsky S-92 helicopter tickled our fancy—to create a Bombardier Challenger 850 interior that emphasizes carbon fiber instead, resulting in a sleek, modern look. The design combines carbon-fiber surfaces in black and gray with ebony hardwood veneer accents. White leather on the seats provides contrast. A cherry-red divan brightens the space, and the black carpet is decorated with a white branching pattern. Satin-finished nickel plating enhances the futuristic feel of the design.
The jet seats up to 16, with four club seats in the forward cabin, a mid-cabin space with the red divan opposite two double seats and a table to create a meeting space, and an aft cabin with a half-club seating configuration and another divan. (flyingcolourscorp.com)
