You have just spent $80 million on that luxury property you have always desired. Now it’s time to fit the interior out in a suitable fashion. Where to start ? A sauna just isn’t going to cut it so here are a few ideas to get you started:
Walk in Cigar Humidor
Swiss manufacturer Michel Perrenoud, S.A. have developed a compact walk in cigar humidor. Originally designed for hotels and cigar bars, but easily adaptable for a private residence. The first installation was in the Lausanne Palace hotel. The modular walk-in interior has complete humidity control and will hold up to 10,000 cigars.
Price – a bargain at just $83,000 – plus shipping and installation.
Coffee Table by David Lloyd Thompson
David Lloyd Thompson creates one-of-a-kind coffee tables, amongst other furniture art and his tagline is “expect the very best.” No question they are unique, but I have a feeling these will come down to personal preference and I suspect Elvis Presley would have been a big fan.
Price – this particular table is cast in epoxy with 20 coats of finish with Mono-printed oil on canvas laminated on the table base and top panel – $50,000
Glass fireplace by Bloch Design
Bloch design make custom glass fireplaces and contemporary furniture made from a variety of materials including tinted or colorless glass and with over 3200 different colors of metal along with Brass, steel, stainless steel, titanium, corten, stone, granite, marbles, corian, seashells and wood. Gas or wood burning options. I have a feeling the wood burning version will keep the maid busy.
Price – From $20,000 upwards depending on specifications.
Digital Picture Frame by Hyundai
Of course, there are digital picture frames, and there are digital picture frames. This particular model by Korean manufacturer Hyundai could more appropriately be called a room divider and features a crane flying between panels.
Price – an estimated $70,000
For the rich and scared, GMS UK install panic rooms constructed with reinforced steel sheeting, eight-inch concrete walls and only one opening with a steel door and special locking systems, equipped with a video monitor, separate telephone line or mobile phone, communication system, fresh air supply and heating, first aid kit, fire extinguishers and alarm keypad all powered by a small generator and emergency lighting in the event of disconnection of power supply and many more.
Price – they are a little cagey about the price because specifications vary so widely, and my thinking is “If you have to ask………”
No self respecting luxury home would be without a decent Hi-Fi system. Kharma will be happy to fulfill your needs. Amongst other products, Kharma sell possibly the most expensive speakers ever built.
Price – a whopping $1,000,000
Limestone gallery in London offer bespoke bathrooms and other interior décor made from a variety of natural materials. This particular bathroom features a solid Ivory Stone bathtub carved from a single piece of stone. Possibly the most exceptional bathroom fittings I have ever seen.
Price – this one is at the lower end of their range and sells for around $70,000 for the entire bathroom. A single bath tub can cost as much as $140,000 – just for the bath tub.
I am not sure this particular toilet will match the baths, but this Swarovski crystal studded toilet is certainly an eye catcher. Designed by Jemal Wright, this is from the “Isis” range of bathroom fittings and is either fully or partially handset with Swarovski crystals – “the epitome of bathroom couture,” according to the designer. Looks a little cold to me and I can only imagine how much fun this will be to clean.
Price – $75,000
Yes, you have guessed – another Swarovski crystal studded appliance – this time – a fridge. Perhaps a little more taste and a little less “couture,” with this one – and, thank goodness, not entirely covered in crystals. Available in limited numbers from Harrods of London.
Price – $20,000
BeefEater offer a modular approach to BBQs, with possibly the most expensive barbeque in the world. According to the website, the Ivis outdoor kitchen centre is the ultimate in outdoor entertaining.
Price – around $50,000
Home Theater System
Of course, like the digital photo frames, there are Home Theater systems and there are Home Theater Systems. This particular model is offered by Frankentek and comes in as one of the most expensive home theater systems. Seven of Nine has never looked so good.
Price – around $800,000 depending on specifications
Designer Washing Machine
This Samsung washing machine has apparently been styled by a Korean fashion designer – Andre Kim. Far be it for me to cast aspersions, but it’s fair to say, Mr. Kim designs a better wedding gown than he does washing machine. And would you really want this level of “luxury,” in the laundry room – very nice gold, ah what the hey…… I just can’t continue – It’s horrible and I cannot imagine why anyone would buy one. But, rather than leave a bad taste in everyone’s mouth, here is one of Mr. Kim’s spectacular wedding gowns.
Washing Macine price – $ This one seems to have been swept under Samsung’s corporate rug before I could ascertain that, but I have a feeling it doesn’t matter. 27 cents is 26 cents too much as far as I’m concerned.
