The Age of McLuxury - a story untold by Edith Wharton

The spectrum of luxury absolutely runs the gamut from A to Z. For some a bed would be considered luxury, to others only this Tree Bed designed by Shawn Lovell would suffice.

Luxury is, as defined by Merriam-Webster, something adding to pleasure or comfort but not absolutely necessary. Here are a just a few items that I'd consider a luxury:

The Cocoon lamp by McGuire

Practically perfect equestrian decanter by Steuben

The only chair that I'd ever sit in! 18th century bergere by Sulpice Brizard, offered through the great 1stdibs

And, the Pagoda Etagere, which I've been drooling over for years! Made by Baker


  1. I've loved that bed for years since I first saw it.The 'next' where all the branches meet is my favorite part of it!

  2. great post-love the description of luxury.well thought.

  3. Have always loved that bed -- would be like waking up in a magical forest . . .
