I generally find time to read two publications, Elle Decor and The Economist; I enjoy both for totally different reasons. In the December 13th issue of The Economist there is a special report on the luxury market....a topic that fascinates me. The definition of luxury is completely subjective and personal. Luxury purchases for some may be everyday items to others. In the global luxury market two thirds of the spending goes for luxury cars and luxury personal goods, ie, fashion, perfume and jewelry. Thank goodness furniture is part of the luxury market! It seems luxury items can be completely superfluous and yet there are items that can make one's life feel a little richer. Luxury items for me are items for my home; fashion, cars and travelling are not that important to me. With that said I owned a 1947 Cadillac two-door fastback that was very luxurious and a joy to drive. I have invested in nice furniture, original artwork and lighting that make coming home enjoyable. I have always extolled buying the best of anything that you can afford. I enjoy selling a better product; I get just as much joy selling a luxurious 2000.00 sofa as much as a luxurious 5000.00 one. Whatever your definition of luxury is here's hoping 2015 brings you lots of it!
