Once in a while I troll around sites such as Luxist just to see what the richest 0.5% of North America is doing. And I occasionally report here on ultra-expensive cars and houses and such. Well, today it is a bed that caught my eye:
It is being marketed quite deliberately as “the most expensive bed in the world” and they are not kidding. The price starts at $38,000 and, with all options tops out at $210,000. For a bed!
Made of Ebony, Sapele and Curly Maple the main attraction is the sunburst patterned circular headboard created by cutting 78 delicate wooden wedges and placing them so they come to a perfect point in the center. The bed also features gold and stainless steel detailing and is gadget-ready with built-in iPad holders and charging stations, touch-sensitive LED backlighting and nightstand lights, pop-up TV and computer screens that swivel.
You can never be too rich or too stupid, I guess.
