If you have some cash laying around and you’re looking for something to buy, Luulu baby crib is something to ponder upon. The world’s most luxurious baby bed is launching in Dubai – clad in 24-karat gold plating, lined with Swarovski diamond-encrusted quilting and costing a cool $60,000.
The Luulu bed will be revealed at this month’s INDEX interior design exhibition in Dubai, the ultra-modern crib – manufactured by a team of yacht builders – has been designed to mimic the feel of being in the womb, while offering parents a chic, high-end piece of furniture to add to their home.
Billed as being the epitome of diaper-doting luxury, the gold Luulu – which takes 200,000 man hours to plate – is perhaps more suited to the highway than the bedroom, with its soft interior shell lined with the same leather as the seats of Maserati supercars.
However, partners Marta Buzalska and Dariusz Panczyk – who run Luulu from their home in Gdynia, Poland, where they produce three different cot-styles, the gold of which is the most prestigious – actually took inspiration from the cream of the high-seas in dreaming-up the concept for their slick sleep pods.
While the price- tag of the gold Luulu might put it beyond the reach of most people, the white and black beds – starting at $6,000 – are guaranteed to be prized investments. We can’t wait to see them up close at INDEX.”
INDEX gets underway on March 26, with the four-day festival of design promising a hugely diverse and creative catalogue of furniture, furnishing and décor suppliers, a conference schedule featuring the pinnacle of local and international design minds, and bespoke live demonstrations and experiences brought to Dubai exclusively for the show. The exhibition will once again run alongside WORKSPACE, the MENA region’s premium office fit- out event, and SURFACE Design Middle East, where the focus is design solutions for floors, walls and ceilings.
