World’s Most Expensive Beds
Magnetic Floating Bed – $1.6 million
The 2006 Millionaire Fair in Kortrijk, Belgium saw the debut of a magnetic floating bed that pretty much takes the cake for the coolest bed in the world—and the most expensive. Conventional beds and mattresses haven’t changed much over the years, and that’s where Dutch architect Janjaap Ruijssenaars comes in. The goal in his project was to make a usable piece of furniture that wasn’t constrained by the laws of gravity.
Ruijssenaars reportedly worked on the technology for six years in collaboration with Bakker Magnetics. Permanent opposing industrial-strength magnets allow the bed to float around 1.3 feet off the floor while holding almost 2,000 lbs. This aesthetically pleasing technology could also be applied to other areas in home furnishings like coffee tables, sofas, and Japanese dining tables. How cool would it be to eat sushi and drink sake off a floating table?
While the expensive bed will run you €1,200,000 (US $1.6 million), a smaller unit, one fifth of the full size, costs €115,000 (US $153,000). If you are a millionaire and simply must have this eye-catching bed, the people at Universe Architecture would be happy to make it happen for you.
Baldacchino Supreme – $6.3 million
After four years on the top, the magnetic floating bed has been unseated by luxury designer Stuart Hughes. whose collaboration with Italy’s Fratelli Basile has created nothing short of the most expensive bed in the world–the Baldacchino Supreme.
Fratelli Basile’s Hebanon furniture evokes the timeless qualities of 18th century furniture while making use of modern craftsmanship. This bed, with its chestnut structure and ash wood canopy, is no exception. The exterior is lacquered, patinated and decorated with 107 kg of 24k gold. The bed also features the finest Italian silk and cotton.
P. Diddy Charters the $600,000-a-Week iPad Megayacht in St. Barths
Solemates (above), the $600,000 per week 197-ft. superyacht charter designed by the great Espen Oeino and launched by Lürssen earlier this year, the first of its kind to offer clients control of its various high-tech systems via the iPad. Now none other than Sean “P. Diddy” Combs has turned up on the yacht in St. Barths, where he chartered the ultra-luxe vessel for a family vacation over New Year’s with girlfriend Kim Porter, their daughters D’Lila and Jessie and son Justin before jetting to Las Vegas to party. Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas visited as well. Via the iPad Diddy and co. can control the shipboard entertainment, climate and lighting systems and even summon crewmembers to bring refreshments.
The interior of the yacht, which accommodates 12 guests in six luxurious cabins, was designed by Glade Johnson in a blend of elegant, rich woods and textures and classical details paired with contemporary, sleek lines. The main and upper deck salons are awash with natural light and offer impressive spaces for formal or casual dining and entertaining. The sun deck features an outdoor dining area and a sun lounge wrapped around the Jacuzzi forward, and a discotheque sound and lighting system turns it into an al fresco nightclub. There are several toys and tenders aboard for a variety of recreational activities.
10 Carat Diamond Manicure for $51,000
Show us some diamonds and you can count on us to write about it. Just recently, we’ve learned from La Moda Dubai the arrival of the world’s first and most expensive diamond manicure in the Middle East. It’s offered by a company called Cherish…ME (the ellipsis actually is part of the name, no kidding).
Dubbed the Iced Manicure, this over-the-top luxurious treatment for your toughened keratins features an arrangement of 10 carats worth of diamonds and costs $51,000. This is a very exclusive treatment and can only be obtained following a consultation with the owner of the nail art bar herself and with her team of diamond manicure experts.
Will it work in Dubai? Maybe for some people. We’re quite aware of the existence of some ladies who literally do not have to lift a finger to do anything. That’s pretty much a prerequisite with this type of crazy expensive nail art anyway because, honestly, can you imagine breaking a nail with this manicure?
Remember those $20,000 diamond-encrusted rubber flip-flops? This cosmetic treatment goes in same heap as those slippers in the extravagant department; only this diamond manicure is almost thrice as expensive.
Interested? Get in touch with Cherish…ME (again with the ellipsis!) via email at email@example.com and get your digits’ bling on.

The Classicist: James Bond Style – Project X’s New British Military “Stealth” Rolex
Project X Designs, the London-based Rolex customizer whose fans include ”James Bond” star Daniel Craig, has come out with three new military-inspired “stealth” designs based on the classic Rolex Submariner and Rolex Explorer. The cool new models pay homage to Agent 007, the legendary British Special Boat Service (SBS) and military issue Submariners of 1950s – 1970s, original models of which fetch a small fortune at auction.
Founded in 1940, the SBS were actually the precursor to the UK’s better-known SAS (Special Air Service), another elite commando unit created for covert operations. Limited to just 28 numbered examples per design, each case back of the Stealth series features a variation on the SBS’ legendary Frog, Paddle and Parachute insignia and its motto “By Strength & Guile.”
The two Rolex Submariner models in the series are the Mk III and Mk IV, one designed for daylight operations and the other more suited to night maneuvers. The Mk III pays homage to the Submariner worn by Sean Connery as 007 in the 1950s Bond movies; the Bond character was originally a former SBS commando. It features an anti-reflective satin case finish, blacked-out bezel and Stealth inscribed dial. Presented on an olive green G10 NATO strap, it’s available exclusively via the Project X website for about $14,000. The Stealth Mk IV (pictured above) has a darker, tougher look with a matte black carbon-coated case and blacked-out ceramic bezel. It too comes on a Nato strap and is priced at about $16,000.
The third model in the series is the Rolex Explorer-based Stealth Mk V. Created as a subtle and sophisticated contrast to the Submariner models, the case is satin finished before being treated with a hard-wearing black DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coating. Issued on a back G10 NATO strap with black hardware, it also comes with a blacked-out steel bracelet and is priced at about $13,000. The Limited Edition customizations of original Rolex watches created by Project X Designs afford watch collectors “a certain individuality combined with a knowing appreciation of the original manufacturer’s heritage.”

Red Tibetan Mastiff: World’s Most Expensive Dog Sells for $1.5 Million
A coal baron living in northern China just spent $1.5 million to buy what is considered the world’s most expensive dog, a red Tibetan Mastiff. It’s hard to know precisely where in that sentence you spurt out your mouthful of coffee: that a dog is worth that much or that there is a millionaire willing to buy one in China.
In any case, the 180-pound 11-month-old red Tibetan Mastiff known as Big Splash, or “Hong Dong” in Mandarin, just earned the title of the world’s priciest pooch. The breed can grow to be 285 pounds, and according to the breeder, Big Splash is such a perfect specimen that the eyeball-popping price is justified. It is believed the breed descended from wolves 58,000 years ago.
Big Splash is a kind of cute fellow — big and bulky, although in most photos he looks like he’s having a bad hair day. The breed has become a status symbol in China, replacing cars and expensive bling as a way for the uber-rich to show off their new-found wealth. Red is considered a lucky color in Chinese culture and Tibetan Mastiffs are thought to be holy animals, bringing riches and good health to their owners, which helps explain the country’s interest in the dog and the run-up in price. But given the size of most Chinese apartments and the size of these dogs, don’t expect to see them bought by the masses; Tibetan Mastiffs are truly only for China’s rich.
In time, Big Splash might fetch $15,000 a pop to breed with a female. Nothing like earning his keep.
