Private jets are already considered the peak of luxury. But a new design took the idea of lavish to a whole new level. In fact, one look and you'd think it was the interior of a spaceship rather than a traditional plane.
SkyStyle, an Argentina-based design firm, revealed the concept recently for the Boeing 737 Max aircraft just before the company shut down production due to COVID-19. And while we will have to wait for the vision to come to life, the proposed style is stunning.

The design makes use of the massive amount of space available on the jet (after all, it is used commercially). Inside there's a dining area, living room office, bedroom, and kitchen. The bedroom is large enough to hold a king-sized bed as well as a wardrobe, and they can even install a full bathroom complete with a stand-up shower.
As far as the common space goes, everything was designed to be easily maneuverable. So, hidden barriers can come down to provide privacy in the main compartment; tables can collapse and expand depending on their use. The countertop can be moved between the kitchen and dining area.
"From an aviation designer's perspective, the BBJ Max is incredibly appealing because there is so much more interior space to realize one's vision," SkyStyle co-founder Max Pardo said in a press release. "Since the Max flies ultra-long-distances, the owners are looking for a comfortable lounge, multi-function conference area, and a large master suite."
Overall, you'll find a sleek design with lots of wavy lines and curved edges on the furniture. The seats look like something you'd find on a Star Trek set, which complements the white and silver color scheme. There's also star-shaped LED lights integrated into the ceiling and furniture to add to the space-age ambiance.
Of course, everything is customizable. So, the owner could choose from a different color palette and opt for more of a beach or desert theme.
The cost for one of these flying mansions? They start at $100 million.
