Luxury brands are all about capturing that perfect balance of pedigree and performance. Luxury has long been the grace and decadence of privilege, but times are changing and wealthy millennials are all about seeking the experience rather than adorning themselves with bling.
Yet there are some brands that have their roots firmly set, brands that can bloom because they offer something extraordinary. These brands are elegant, timeless, and truly rare in their creative craftsmanship. These brands capture the very epitome of luxury.
If music be the food of love, then Hart Audio have created a feast fit for kings. The well-known audiophile brand has created the world’s most expensive speaker with a staggering price tag of $4 million. The D&W Aural Pleasure is cast in solid gold and designed to reflect the days of ancient bell founding. They are said to deliver pure and perfect sound, with sophisticated audio technology that blows just about every other speaker out of the water. These speakers may be given a glorious edge from the gold, but it’s the impeccable craftsmanship that sets them apart.
If you want to choose a corkscrew that is sure to cost more than your bottle of wine- then Sveid is the place to turn.

The personal design ensures that you own something truly unique, and you get to be registered in the exclusive club of other owners.

When you seek old-world opulence, Italian heritage, and luxury that comes with a lavish finish, then Baldi is the place to turn.
