While I may not have the ear for playing instruments I most certainly have the appreciation required to enjoy the beautiful sounds of quality instruments and talented musicians. As an Interior Designer I love the beauty instruments can add to a space with their rich woods and metals with intricate details and timeless beauty. I recently stumbled upon the incredible French luxury piano manufacturer Gary Pons who’s pieces are worthy of any collector, pianist, rock band, concert hall or celebrity home.
These luxury pianos are all made by hand from the finest quality stings, felts, woods aluminum and Altuglass featuring curved, etched and sculpted designs original to each piece. These fine instruments are unequalled and cannot be compared to the Steinway, Schimmel and Pleyel pianos of the world. These are finely crafted works of art that make a dramatic statement to any interior and command attention. The SY185 grand piano shown can be yours for a heavy €35,900.
This world renowned piano manufacturer was privelaged in 2010 to be a part of Luxuria in Monaco, a gallery event that showcases the top luxury companies in the world. The show supports and promotes tailor made luxury, contemporary art and limited edition items for connoisseurs and collectors. All of the items are hand selected from discreet brands and seldom displayed ateliers for being renowned artists and cutting edge in their craft. The show represents the finest in Art & Design, Watchmaking, Jewelry, Haute Couture fashion, Leather goods, Automobiles & Motorcycles, Boats & Private Jets, health, Beauty and Fragrances, High Technology, Sports & Leisure and services. After all wikipedia even defines the word Luxuria as “the cardinal sin of extravagance”.
This year the Luxuria event – a quintessence of a world of privelages – will take place in the Grimaldi Forum July 07-08-09 2011
