Jun 2nd 2006 6:30PM I am intrigued by Chihuly, but more intrigued by the "scandal." Thanks for the tip.
Chihuly donated a disturbing (yet beautiful) chandelier to the Gonda Buliding at the Mayo Clinic. http://www.chihuly.com/installations/public/Art/mayo3B.html
It's beautiful, and yet you wonder if something that looks like that is going on in your own body on a cellular level. Disturbing, that, particularly in a medical office complex.
May 31st 2006 11:18PM Wow. Just... just... wow.
Don't most people have framed photos of themselves in the bathroom? As well, I often think a room with particularly low ceilings needs a gilt-recess chandelier.
As for the gold tiles? Well, when you are a Star, you can never have enough reflective surfaces.
May 18th 2006 12:32AM I remember driving past this monstrosity in CDM when I lived there. Yes, it's completely publicly accessible. It was being built then, and it took three lots to build it. I think that was circa 1999-2000 when construction was being done. I recall thinking that it looked like George Jetson's living areas when I peeked indoors.
Amazing. I hope someone buys the ridiculous thing. That'd be great for the property values in the neighborhood.
May 16th 2006 7:56PM I must tell on myself: I get a little annoyed when I read a comment by the gentleman from SE Asia about Americans and Europeans and conspicuous consumption and how for the price of a Marc Jacobs handbag a thousand malnourished children in the Third World could eat for a year and so on...
After all, this site is called "Luxist," it's not called "Bargain Basement" or "Feed The World" or "Why Capitalists Are Scum."
But right now we need him. We need his commentary now. For this revolting display. Bring it on. We appreciate you, Razib Ahmed! Sincerely, I do appreciate your comments and I will never roll my eyes again when I read them.
Seriously, I have no idea how you do it, Nicole! You (and the rest) manage to post an article like this without making super snide commentary. You are a better woman than I.
Keep up the good work. Thanks for the daily detour from reality. And also for the constant reminder of how good we've got it here.
May 16th 2006 11:21AM #3, sort of: the PR team keeps the girl in the news - and they do an excellent job, it seems!
Apr 14th 2006 4:50PM Which is interesting and not just a little ironic considering the Trumpster himself does not touch alcohol. His brother died of alcoholism and he steers completely clear of it.
Well, I guess he probably doesn't wear the creations of the Trump haberdashery either. Those are sold at Macy's. His suits are likely custom.
Apr 10th 2006 7:40PM He has always been such a sensible consumer.
Didn't he owe Harry Winston for some ridiculously expensive watch at some point? Like upwards of $500,000?
Feb 27th 2006 5:26PM Yes, I saw this in Town & Country Travel. It looks divine. Apparently the owners are very into the whole "experience" aspect and tailor it to the clients. One of the resorts (not sure if it was Fushi or Gili) was closed for some time after the tsunami, but it has reopened.
Really magical-looking place!
Feb 18th 2006 8:10PM Very sweet looking with a little spice.
