The Neat-O Stuff Thread

A Neat-O Airstream deserves some Neat-O stuff.

These "Queen of Love" chairs would look really kewl sitting outside the Airstream, don't you think? They also have the matching ottomans and tables.

Oy vey....they are a bit pricey, but as every Airstreamer knows, "Neat-O" doesn't come cheap.



The Queen Of Love Chair

Anyway, thought this would be a good thread to initiate. There's lots of Neat-O stuff out there just begging for an Airstream.

Those are a bit fussy for me. I'm strictly a modernist and prefer cleaner lines for my recycled plastic:

Or Lexan

Some images of Lexan and polycarbonate and PVC furniture applications. Two of my favorites are the round table with a draped "tablecloth" on line 1, and the famous "ghost chair" on the right of line 2. If you're looking for footstools, or small tables that don't make the Airstream look cluttered - well invisible ones might do the trick nicely.

Downsides? Stumbling around in the morning before you put the bifocals on or have your first cup of coffee, you could bark your shin pretty badly or sit down with said cuppa coffee and miss when you go to set it on the table. Also after too many adult beverages some could be tricky!

cam, I tend to agree with you. Modernism/minimalism suits the latter Airstreams in particular.

I can see the Queen of Love chairs suiting a retro Airstream that has been frilled up.

Thanks for the link. Neat-O stuff...... for the sophisticate?

There have been so many times we have have gone camping recently that there have been campfire bans (ground fires). I recently found "the little red campfire" portable gas log campfire. Nothing beat the real thing, but this is nice and neat!

Paula, wow! Lots of Neat-O in that link. Those items would really add a spatial illusion to an Airstream.
lol! about "downsides" but I am sure aching for that draped table.

I have used acrylics a lot in special-event decor. The tall tubes are great for centrepieces. I like them on the catering table in particular.

lewis, thanks for posting that option. I thought the "snake-charmer" music was pretty Neat-O too!

How about more aluminum?
This is pretty "neat-o" ... Just right for the FAN!

lewis, you have saved the day. I have been wanting to replace the dinette with the recliner option 'cept most recliners are kinda boring. An ejection seat is just the thing I've been looking for. I've always loved those dramatic exits. I'll just have to cut a big hole in the Airstream roof and away I go.

BTW, do helicopters have ejection seats too?
