Duncan Aviation has shared details of a recent Global Express XRS refurbishment. The cabin is defined by its bold patterns, textures and non-conventional colours – all stipulated by the owner.

The entryway features custom wood flooring in a dark, rich brown. Meanwhile the carpet is implemented in half leather and half wool, a rare combination. The seat design is reminiscent of seats in an Aston Martin car, with details stitched throughout in brown leather. The headrest also has similar details, but in black leather.

The galley was given a facelift as well, with an unusual metal design, black and white quartz countertop, and a faucet that looks like a beer tap. In the lavatory, the sidewalls have bright striping in blue, white and black, and the countertops feature a blue and white marble.

In addition to the interior upgrade, the exterior was updated with a custom paint scheme that incorporates the owner’s brand in a bold yet distinct way. The Global Express XRS also benefitted from a 120-month inspection, a Collins Aerospace Venue CMS upgrade and new LED lighting.
