The recent record breaking lottery jackpot got us thinking what it would be like to feel blessed enough to sort shopping lists from high to low. With this dream scenario in mind, we reached out to the designers at Décor Aid to use their ultimate furniture wish-list for inspiration.
From a rare Persian rug with a dazzling seven-figure price tag to the kitchen of your dreams – here’s what our interior designers would be on the agenda if they had a lottery ticket in hand.
The ultimate Persian carpet
“While I would never drop $ 33 million on a Persian vase rug like a buyer did at auction in 2013, this Persian Kerman vase rug sounds like a bargain of $ 4 million! Plus, if it’s treated well, it never loses its value, especially if you cover it with it. ‘- Interior designer Lindsey T. from Décor Aid.
Armani Casa Bar
“I would take Armani Casa almost every day if I could, and I’ve always had my eye on one of their minimalist home bars with bold graphical interfaces that unfortunately cost around $ 20,000.” – Décor Aid interior designer Morgan G.
Holly Hunt sofa
“I fell in love with Holly Hunt’s round couches the first time I went to a client’s house, and have longed for an apartment big enough to house one with everything else I have ever since I’ve collected over the years. ” – Interior designer Hailey B. from Décor Aid.
“When I moved into my newly built NYC apartment, I ran out of the idea of having an oversized freestanding bathtub in my house, and that cute color is exactly what I need.” – Décor Aid interior designer Michael O.
“I’ve always loved the unique silhouettes and shapes of Smeg fridges, but haven’t yet placed any of these hand-painted, limited edition Dolce & Gabbana limited editions in a customer’s home – because they’re roughly 60,000! – Interior designer Julie C. from Décor Aid.
Pierre Cardin establishment
“Any piece of furniture or accessory from the 60s and 70s, Pierre Cardin, will always be at the top of my list thanks to its timeless, forever cool factor.” – Décor Aid project manager Ian J.
La Cornue kitchen
“With its great Gatsby feeling, I have always romanticized the beauty of a La Cornue kitchen because it is overwhelmingly glamorous – much more engaging than an elegant, ultra-minimal kitchen every day in my book.” – Interior designer Elle T. from Décor Aid.
Built in bar
“Sure, there are great bar cart options, but if I got a new place on a much bigger budget I would have a purpose-built large bar with a wine cellar that I could return to at the end of the day. – Décor Aid renovation expert Jon C.
‘Let Baccarat lead the way with innovative design with these ball-like chandeliers that will stay cool in any room forever. That is, if they didn’t sell at just under 100,000. ‘- Décor Aid interior designer Natalia P.
“As a beginning art major, I have been drawn to the fascinating simplicity of master sculptor Brancusi since college, and my appreciation, which has not let up. Plus, they would make a solid investment on my profits. ‘- Décor Aid interior designer Nina G.
Dieter Rams Stereo
“While they may not be the biggest ticket contemplated among my designer colleagues, electronics from Dieter Rams have long been on my wish-list for essential furniture, as there is nothing cooler than their minimal retro charm.” – Décor Aid interior designer Luke B.
Faig Ahmed wall hanging
“I have followed the career of artist Faig Ahmed since his first solo show and have always found his liquefied shots of heirloom Persian carpets fascinating and overly cool. He would definitely be my first and greatest boon as there is nothing quite like his pioneering work out there. ‘- Décor Aid interior designer Carlo M.
Gio Ponti seats
‘With over a hundred monumental buildings completed over the course of his career, Italian architect Gio Ponti was also a gifted industrial designer, furniture designer, artist, writer, and publisher that I had been obsessed with since my early days in design school. What I wouldn’t give to have an original! ‘- Interior designer Robert M.
