Moto Art – KC-97 – Fuel Cradle Desk the B-29 Bomber

Moto Art specifically make furniture out of Old Planes, from the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s. Basically whatever they can get their hands on from these old school planes. They take a fuselage or an engine or a tail piece, they some how manage to turn it into a piece of furniture. I do love their style and they have done an amazing job with this piece from a B-29 Bomber. The problem is the price that comes with these pieces, since they have to go to the airplane scrap yard to get it and its not cheap, so something like this would probably be between $10’000 to $20’000 but I still like the way their furniture look, its original and can’t be copied.

Office Depot

Since opening in Kuwait I have been to Office Depot a few times, its not 10% of the size of the Office Depots I have seen in the states but its a good change to have inside the Mall. Its come to the point where Avenues is majority clothing or food and not much else, but Office Depot is a refreshing change and I wanted to pass by to pick up some post its and paper since I was heading to the Avenues in the first place.

Its good they have a nice selection of printers, with Brothers being the one with the most features and more reasonable pricing. I like how they have a huge selection of paper and the different kinds of packaging and folders that you can have, I picked up an expandable plastic folder to use to organize my bills and other paper work. I can’t resist looking at USBs and external hard drives and they had a nice selection. Another part of the store that I really like is the pen and pencil section, I’m very particular about pens and pencils, I like to have ones which have a certain amount of ink when used on paper and how it feels. Then there was the calculator section which reminded me of my old scientific calculator and having to store formulas in the memory and all. Overall there should be a few different stores within the mall and its desperately needing a change, maybe a big book store would really help.
