Boldly Live As You've Never Lived Before

 

 

Scheme No.1

Brenda’s Pick

 

1、拍摄登月照片的哈苏相机

A lot of people say that the Hasselblad is the Rolls Royce of cameras and that maybe, but I like to believe it is the Mercedes of cameras. Basically because it’s so 1)robust1, it’s a reliable tool. We use the best 2)components, supplied to the tightest 3)specifications, hand 4)assembled by the most skillful 5)craftsmen4. And the process of making a Hasselblad camera is actually seven-weeks long processes. On every 6)NASA 7)mission since 1962, all the images Neil Armstrong landing on the moon, they were all shot on Hasselblad.

 

2、世界上最完好的漫画书

We (Metropolis Collectibles, N.Y.) are the largest 8)dealership5 of 9)vintage comic books in the world. We have an 10)inventory7 of over 100,000 pre-1975 comic books, anything from Batman #1 to Superman #1, Action Comics #1, first appearances of any characters, and 11)whereas most companies only have one or two of a comic book, if that many. The most expensive comic book we have here is an All Star Comics #3. It is in 12)pristine8, near 13)mint 9.4 condition, which is a scale of 1 to 10: 9.4 usually means a perfect copy, anything 14)beyond that is extra perfect. This is the highest grade known copy to exist in the world. This comic book is worth approximately 165,000 dollars.

 

3日不落庄园

Crofts New Hall is an amazing concept. The 15)inspiration behind the design was that it was a very, very 16)level site sitting in a tree surrounded area, very, very private. The design actually 17)blends with the ground, and it actually 18)extrudes itself out of the ground and 19)mingles with it. The house is being designed to 20)take full advantage of the passage of the sun during the day, so in the morning the sun rises in the east, it will shine into the bedroom 21)wings and 22)illuminate11 the day so you wake up feeling happy. And as it works through the day, it shines across the house and 23)ends up on the pool area in the dance floor, in the dining room in the evening for a perfect end to the day.

 

4、一支蒸蒸日上的英国球会

When I told my wife that I was going to buy the club, she went, “Oh, my God!” It was a 24)bankrupt club and we brought it for 75,000 pounds. To make the club what it is today, approximately 350,000 (pounds) in the new buildings and the new front and other areas that we have to do. In one direction, it was an expensive progress, but in another direction, the supporters this year were really fantastic. Hastings United is now an 25)asset rather than a 26)liability, and I think it’s worth a lot more than when we bought it.

 

5、一双红色鳄皮靴

I used French 27)tanned crocodile. And measure their feet, I take eight to ten 28)measurements off of each foot from which I make a custom made pair of 29)lasts. And the last is the shoe 30)mould that I will actually mould and stretch the leather over once the shoe is made. From that point, there are actually 372 steps to the assembly process before the boot is actually finished. And then the client comes back in, which is about a year and a half later because of my 31)backlog12, and we try them on. Most of the time they put them on and dance away out of the shop.

 

6、主题派对

At London Launch what we do it put people in direct contact with the very best companies in the event industry so you got 32)venues, you’ve got 33)catering14, you’ve got 34)themeing, you’ve got 35)choreography, 36)lighting15, 37)staging, a huge amount goes into it. In terms of the most spectacular party you could ever imagine, there are endless possibilities. Really there are no limits, but you have to know what’s out there, what’s available to you.

 

Scheme No.2

Alice's Wonderland

 

1、游艇新贵波斯88

The Persian 88 is equipped with two 38)diesel16 engine MTU, 16 39)cylinders for 2000 horsepower each, that push the boat at a top speed of 44 40)knots. That’s right, 2000 horsepower creating 44 knots or 51 miles per hour of top-end speed. The kind of person that would buy Persian 88 of course is somebody who wants to 41)show off...

 

2、渔人岛阳光别墅

Fisher Island near Miami is home to the most expensive real estate in America. There is two things that really make Fisher Island so attractive to the international buyer. One is safety and the other is security and privacy. People don’t lock their homes up here on Fisher Island, they leave their cars unlocked. It’s a different way of life and you really feel as though you are in a 42)Caribbean island all to itself. It’s a resort setting. You have 17 tennis courts, you have a nine hole championship golf course. We have six restaurants, we have dozens of swimming pools on the island, we have miles of sandy white beach.

 

3、一辆劳斯莱斯银刺

Rolls Royce is certainly the best car in the world. The Rolls Royce Silver Spur is a 300 brake horsepower rocket with a top speed of 160 43)MPH and the Phantom18 II is an 8-litre 6-cylinder17 head 44)turner with the engine a 45)Silver Lady, that’s no mean 46)feat19.

 

4、一枚法拉利钻石吊坠

One such piece is Leo’s famous Ferrari 47)medallion. It’s a diamond 48)encrusted 49)jaw20 dropper, guaranteed to effortlessly weaken knees 50)at will. A symbol of the Ferrari, it’s that exact horse. All princess cut diamonds invisibly set which is diamond next to diamond -- through the body through the leg it’s also white diamonds. In the 51)hoofs it’s black diamonds and in all the hair, the tail it’s all yellow diamonds.

 

5、娱乐先锋:索尼手提平面电视

Imagine a portable flat screen 52)telly that gives you Internet access, DVD playback, digital photography and of course you can even watch 53)Neighbors on it. What’s more it can be used anywhere in the house and you can even take it into the shower. Sound like a dream come true -- Well you’re right ‘cause it’s the home entertainment. It’s the Sony Airboard, the perfect reason for a cozy22 night in with the girlfriends.

 

6、一劳永逸的住宅自动化

Home automation can be as simple as an automatic lighting control system that realizes when someone’s home and gives you a pathway of light from your garage door all the way to your master bedroom. We now offer industrial products like 54)retina scanning devices, iris23 scanning devices, finger printing analysis, and all the way up to something that they call face recognition. These devices that were primarily used in the past for very high security areas now can be used for the residential24 client as well as commercial applications.

 

7、世界上最昂贵的洗手间

We use 382 gram of 24-55)carrot gold and 6,200 precious 56)gemstones like pearl, 57)ruby25 and 58)sapphire26 to build up this gold washroom. Built in 2001 this 59)world wecord wreaking27 WC was originally valued at 38 million HKD, however as the price of gold fluctuates it’s value changes and today it worth a staggering 50.3 million HKD. That’s approximately 4 million 2 hundred and 5 thousand 4 hundred and 55 pounds.

 

Scheme No.3

Paul's Fashion World

 

1、纽约Black Book杂志(一年)

New York's Black Book magazine, the definitive28 guide to the painfully hip6. The magazine was established in 1995, as a very much progressive fashion pop culture magazine, consisting of arts, music, fashions all that in our society. The magazine comes out five times a year. Every issue has a little black book which is an underground Zaget. We have people in all the different markets that we cover, out there investigating what is the hottest new hotels and restaurants and bars. I think that we are definitely one of the most 60)cutting-edge fashion publications, which enables us to take the kind of risks that we do take.

 

2、天下无敌的Ecosse跑车

The Ascari's Ecosse is a 5-litre V8 400 brake horsepower poser’s powerhouse. This British beauty will 61)propel you from 0-60 in 4.1 seconds and will hurl30 you down the motorway31 at just under 200 miles an hour. And the best thing about the Ecosse is that it’s almost as unique as your stunning32 good looks. There were native 30 produced, and, because of that, it’s obviously 62)exclusive and it’s also very much a luxury car. And it costs? The cost is 80,000 pounds to drive, and it’s worth every penny of it.

 

3、闹鬼城堡

Chillingham castle in Northumberland is 1000 years old. The initial foundations of the castle started about 1000 years ago. My father bought the castle back into the family in about 1980 and since then over the last 20 years it’s slowly being restored. The great hall is a fantastic room with 63)tapestries at one end and elephant armor on the wall and swords and armor and candles. As well as it being a working castle, it’s very much a 64)haunted castle. And in fact it’s meant to be the most haunted castle in England. We’ve had a number of sightings of ghosts, in fact so much so that you would have to pay attention to them and accept that there are ghosts, and if that’s what you are looking for then you would certainly find them here.

 

4、双管猎枪一支 + 配件

Purdey's been purveyors of guns to our Germanic 65)overlords ever since 1840. And they know exactly what goes into making a gun fit for a king. First stage in building a gun is making the barrels. Then goes to the stocker who does the woodwork. Now this piece of wood probably started life about three to four hundred years ago as a walnut33 tree in Turkey. We offer the option of having special engraving34. Finished this built gun, above all it has to reach the customer, looking absolutely perfect in every way, one which is capable of working reliably and, I’m not 66)exaggerating, for the next hundred years.

 

 

Scheme No.4

Zihuan: A Typical Way of Life

 

1、镜子屋里就我最美

Why not 67)jet over to life at sea in the 68)Bahamas and buy yourself the ultimate model’s mirrored mansion35?

Audrey Ross (estate agent): The property has four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. It covers, actually, more than 10,000 square feet, and it sits on more than an 69)acre in property. 

And best of all, this house has lots and lots of mirrors to satisfy even the 70)vainest of billionaire models. And what’s more, you won’t be troubled by those annoying 71)snappers. 

 

2、我有防弹车,我怕谁!

Straight to Stuttgart in Germany, where Mercedes make the ultimate 72)armoured motor. 

Josef Schumacher (Mercedes manufacturer): One of the most important differences between the basic car and the armoured car is the thickness of the glass. You can see how thick we have to build the armoured glass to be able to protect against military 73)rifles and hardcore weapons. The roof of this car is made of steel because this roof has to be 74)resistant36 against attacks with hand 75)grenades. 

 

3、总统套房,高级享受

Welcome to the Peninsula Hotel. It’s the jewel of Asia and lovingly known as the “Grand Old Lady of Hong Kong.”

Rainy Chan (hotel manager): Peninsula Suite37 offers 76)butler service -- 4 hours available. The suite, itself, is beautifully decorated. There’s a beautiful reception area as you enter the suite. In the living room, gold, hand-painted 77)prime ceiling. And also the only suite in the hotel that offers a beautiful 78)balcony. There’s a dining area, a kitchen, and also a private living room that offers privacy away from the guests. The bedroom, beautifully decorated, with hand-painted panels, that’s made by silk. And the bathroom offers the most beautiful marble. And it’s one of the very few places where you can sit in the hot tub, look out your window and you see a beautiful sight of Hong Kong, that no one else will be able to see. 

 

 4、大饱口福吃鲍鱼

If you want a meal fit for a king, well, you’ve got to go for the most expensive dish in the world: 79)Abalone.

Chef: Abalone, actually, is a very expensive sea food. They’re very delicious. The texture38 of a good abalone is sticky. Abalone is regarded as a status symbol, a symbol of wealth. Wealthy people always eat abalone to represent their high social status. 

 

5、一往无前飞翔板

Buy 80)Hover39 Board, the only means of transport for a high-earning super-hero.

Robert Dimmick (manufacturer): The Hover Board is a personal, single rider hovercraft that transports a standing40 rider on a cushion of air. It’s extremely safe, in reality, because, unlike riding a 81)skateboard, for example, where balance is critical, the hovercraft is extremely stable. It’s about five and a half feet in diameter, so it cannot fall. And you basically stand on the middle of it, and, unless you wish to fly off the top of the edge of a mountaintop or something, it’s extremely safe and anyone can learn to ride it. It has a speed of approximately thirteen, fourteen miles an hour. You do not have to have balance, so you really learn to ride the hovercraft in just a few minutes. It’s really quite a bit of fun.

 

Scheme No.5

Pinkle's Favorite

 

1、香港山顶大宅

This good and free appointed house is on the peak, is on the market for five million pounds. It’s Hong Kong’s best location. Fully29 82)marbled the floor, and you’ve got ceiling-to-floor windows; you’ve got 83)stainless41 steel 84)banisters, wooden-trimmed banister rails. We go into the kitchen: fully fitted stainless steel sink, Siemens fittings, wine cooler. Upstairs we have the bedrooms.

This is the master’s bedroom suite, as you can see, amazing views over the harbor-- on a clear day you can see right into China. And if you got to check this out, this bathroom is amazing. You’ve got 85)Jacuzzi bath, you’ve got a steam 86)injection, you’ve got double sink, covered in marble. What more could you want?

 

2、法拉利 360 蒙特拿跑车

Well, the car’s a 87)Ferrari 360 Modena, costs around about 100,000 pounds. Naught42 to 60 in about four and a half seconds and it feels it. And it’s a very, very good-handling car, just-it handles likes a go-cart. It’s excellent, absolutely excellent. Well, the car can do somewhere north of 180. It doesn’t really feel an awful lot quicker than, let’s say, 100 miles an hour. You are aware that you are traveling quite quickly.

 

3、迈阿密随身保镖

We provide a broad range of services starting from 88)investigative services to event security, security consultant43 and, our 89)mainstay, which is executive protection of VIPs, and wealthy royalty44.

Well, for a four-year term in office costing a total of 1,112,000 90)quid.

 

4懒仔舒适懒椅

Run around 1,100 pounds in black leather, body can rise with a sort of attachment47 that are available, it could take it fourteen, fifteen hundred pounds.

 

5、切尔西健身俱乐部

The Chelsea Club in West London is one of the most exclusive and expensive gymnasiums in the country, posting a 40,000 square foot training area and the UK’s only outdoor running track. It’s the private haunt of some of Chelsea Football Club’s highest paid stars. If you really want to get fit, sometimes just got to pop up for the best. If we keep this up for a year, we will be to 11,160 pounds.

大胆生活的五个方案

 

一、完美世界的演绎

1、拍摄登月照片的哈苏相机

很多人说,哈苏是相机中的劳斯莱斯,这或许有道理;可我喜欢当它是相机中的奔驰。因为从本质上说,它既坚固耐用又性能可靠。我们按最严格的要求选用最佳配件,请技术最娴熟的技师手工安装。要装配好一架哈苏相机,需要不多不少七个星期的时间。自1962年起,美国国家航空宇航局的每一次太空计划,以及尼尔·阿姆斯特朗登月拍摄的所有照片,使用的都是哈苏相机。

2、世界上最完好的漫画书

我们(纽约都市收藏)是全世界最大的经典古董漫画书经销商。1975年以前的漫画书,我们存有十万余册,包括《蝙蝠侠》首版、《超人》首版和《动作漫画》首版等等所有角色的首次亮相,与此相反,很多其他漫画商每版能有一两本已算不错。我们手头上最昂贵的漫画书,是《全明星漫画》第三集。这本书是完美的首版,按照110的等级排列,它属于9.4级:9.4一般来说已是完美漫画书籍的标准,超过这个标准就是超完美。这是全世界现存的最高等级的漫画书,价值约16.5万美元。

3日不落庄园

克萝芙新庄园是个了不起的概念。设计灵感选址在丛林环绕的平坦地带,有高度隐私的空间。建筑随着地势起落,既作水平延伸,也与地形天然交融在一起。设计充分地善用了日照光线:早晨太阳在东方升起,阳光洒进卧室中,照亮这一日,让你醒来即有欢畅的心情。白天太阳在不同的时间照射到不同的房间,黄昏则斜照着泳池、舞厅和餐室,一天就这么完美地结束。

4、一支蒸蒸日上的英国球会

我把买球会的打算告诉老婆听时,她惊呼:噢,上帝啊! 当初我们买下这个破产的球会花了7.5万英镑。前后共开销了35万英镑,盖新楼、修前院还有其它地方,才有它今天这样的面貌。从一方面说,这种进步是昂贵的;可从另一方面来看,我们今年多了很多拥众。现在,黑斯廷斯联合球会是资产不是负债,它的价值远远超过我们当年购买的价格。

5、一双红色鳄皮靴

我使用的是法国棕褐色鳄鱼皮。测脚的时候,我每只脚都要量810个尺寸,好做一对鞋楦。最后做鞋模,等鞋做好后用来定型和伸展皮革。其实靴子在完全做好以前,要经过372道工序。然后过上大约一年半时间,客户再过来取定制的鞋和试穿。他们常常穿上鞋子跳着舞离开鞋店。

6、主题派对

我们伦敦发射站做的是帮助人们直接联系英国最好的公司,全方位打点好场地、食物、主题、编舞、灯光、舞台等等一切因素。派对能搞得多好,要看你的想象力有多丰富,创意无止境嘛。真的,没有任何条件限制,但对于要做成什么样和手头有什么可用资源,你一定要心中有数,明明白白。

 

二、浪漫贵族

1、游艇新贵波斯88

波斯88装备有两台MTU柴油引擎和16个汽缸,每个汽缸都有2000马力,可以让游艇的最高速度达到44节。没错,2000马力意味着最高速度为44节,也就是时速51英里。购买波斯88的人是那些喜欢炫耀的家伙……

 

2、渔人岛阳光别墅

全美国最昂贵的房地产要数迈阿密附近的渔人岛。渔人岛靠两大特点吸引国际买家:一是安全,一是私密。渔人岛上的住户既不锁门,也不锁车。这是一种完全不一样的生活方式,你会觉得就像生活在加勒比海上的小岛一样。这里是休闲的胜地,有17个网球场,一个9洞锦标赛的高尔夫球场,有6家餐馆和几十处游泳池,更有绵延数英里的白色沙滩。

3、一辆劳斯莱斯银刺

劳斯莱斯无疑是世界上最好的车。劳斯莱斯银色马刺有300制动马力,最高时速为160英里,快似火箭。劳斯莱斯幻影二代则马力强劲,像头号体育选手,68升的汽缸,配备银色贵妇的引擎,再合适不过了。

4、一枚法拉利钻石吊坠

这件最让里奥得意的法拉利配饰,是一颗令人惊叹的钻石镶嵌的吊坠,保证毫不费力就能让追求者拜倒在你的石榴裙下。它的外形是一匹马--也就是作为法拉利标志的那匹马。所有的钻石为公主型切割,一颗挨着一颗地隐嵌在马身上,马腿上镶着白钻。马蹄上镶黑钻,鬃毛镶黄钻。

5、娱乐先锋:索尼手提平面电视

想象有这么一台手提纯平电视机,可以上网、可以播放DVD,还可以数码摄影,当然,也可以追电视剧。你可以在家里的各处使用它,甚至可以把它带进浴室用。这些听起来像美梦成真吧?没错,它就是最棒的家庭娱乐装置--索尼纯平电视机,拥有它,你就可以和女伴们一起过个舒舒服服的夜晚喽。

6、一劳永逸的住宅自动化

住宅自动化也可以简单得像自动照明控制系统一样,后者在主人回到家时,就会开启从车库门到卧室一路上的照灯。我们现在提供的工业产品还有:视网膜扫描装置、虹膜扫描装置、指纹分析设备,甚至还有容貌辨认系统。这些装置起先只在高度机密区域使用,现在住家和商务都开始派上用场。

7、世界上最昂贵的洗手间

我们用382克的24K纯金和6200颗珍贵的宝石,如珍珠、红宝石和蓝宝石铸就了这间盥洗室。这间惊世之作建于2001年,最初价值3800万港元,然而,随着金价的波动,它的价值也随之变化。现在,它的价值之高令人咋舌,为5030万港元,约4205455英镑。

 

三、新奇前卫新展现

1、纽约Black Book杂志(一年)

纽约的《黑书》杂志,绝对是潮流时尚的权威向导。杂志于1995年创办, 是十分前卫的时尚潮流杂志,内容包括艺术、音乐及社会上的一切流行事物。杂志全年五期。每期有地下潮流黑名册。我们杂志有人遍布各地,搜罗最热门的旅馆、酒店和酒吧。我认为我们绝对是最前卫的出版物之一,这让我们敢冒天下一切大险。

2、天下无敌的Ecosse跑车

Ascari 公司的 Ecosse 跑车5.0升,V8引擎,400 制动马力。这位英国丽人起跑速度4.1秒内即达60英里,而且能在公路上以时速200英里飞驰。Ecosse最大优点是美色超群,天下无双。英国本土只生产了30部,由于这个原因,Ecosse非常尊贵,同时也十分豪华。至于价钱? 8万英镑就可开走它,绝对物有所值。

3、闹鬼城堡

诺森伯兰郡的智宁翰城堡有一千年历史。城堡的底座一千年前就建造了。1980年家父购进城堡,此后20年慢慢进行装修。大厅很奇特,一边挂有一张挂毯,墙上有个大象盔甲,有长剑、盔甲和蜡烛。城堡能住人,但也闹鬼。事实上这是全英国闹鬼闹得最猛的城堡。我们见过好多次鬼,事实上看见得太多了,只好不得不留意它们并且接受闹鬼的事实。若你真的想见上一见,在这里定不负你望。

4、双管猎枪一支 + 配件

Purdey's 1840年起就一直是德国君主的猎枪供应商。他们十分清楚如何制作适合皇帝用的猎枪。第一步是制造枪管。然后交由枪托制造工雕装枪托。这块木约有三、四百年历史了,是土耳其胡桃木。我们提供特别雕刻。制成品交给客人时必须完美无瑕。猎枪要实用可靠,我不是夸张,100年后仍可以用。

 

四、生活新主张

1、镜子屋里就我最美

为何不先坐飞机到巴哈马群岛,给你自己买一模特儿最高境界的镜子屋?

奥德丽·罗斯(房产商): 这座屋子有四个睡房和四个半洗手间。它坐落在一英亩的土地上,房子面积达一万多平方英尺。

这座房子最奇妙的地方是它里面有很多很多镜子,即使是最臭美的巨富模特儿也会心满意足的,而且,你不用再怕那些讨人嫌的狗仔队。

2、我有防弹车,我怕谁!

直奔德国斯图加特,在那里,梅塞德斯制造出最了不起的防弹车。

约瑟夫·舒马赫(梅塞德斯制造商):普通车与防弹车之间最大的区别之一就是玻璃的厚度。你看,防弹玻璃的这种厚度足以抵御军用步枪和重型武器,车顶的材料是钢板,可以抵挡手榴弹的攻击。

3、总统套房,高级享受

欢迎你到半岛酒店。这家酒店是亚洲的一颗明珠,被亲切的称为尊贵的香港贵妇。

雷妮·郑(酒店经理):半岛套房为你提供二十四小时的管家服务。套房本身装饰得很漂亮,一进门就会看见一个精致的会客厅。起居室的天花板是一流的手绘制作,金碧辉煌。同时,全酒店只有这个套房配有这个别致的露台。这里有餐室、厨房,除此之外,还有一个让你不受客人干扰的私人起居室。睡房以手绘的壁板装饰,是用真丝做的,美观大气。洗手间里有最豪华的大理石,在这里,你躺在浴缸里,可以欣赏窗外香港的美丽景色,而这些都是独一无二的。

4、大饱口福吃鲍鱼

想吃一顿皇家饭?那你得尝尝这世界上最昂贵的一道菜:鲍鱼。

厨师:鲍鱼实属天价海鲜,但却美味无穷。好鲍鱼的口感是有弹性的。鲍鱼被视为身份和财富的象征,有钱人总是以吃鲍鱼来显示自己的社会地位。

5、一往无前飞翔板

买一块飞翔板,这可是收入不菲的超级英雄拥有的唯一交通工具。

罗伯特·迪米克(制造商):飞翔板只能由一人使用,它是一个让人站在气垫上穿梭的气垫交通工具。与保持平衡是关键因素的滑板不一样,飞翔板很安全,很平稳。它直径是五英尺半,因此人不容易摔倒。除非你想从山涯跳下来,不然你站在它的中间将会非常安全,每个人都能学会。飞翔板的速度是每小时十三、四英里,你不用学怎么样平衡,几分钟内你就能学会使用它。它真的是乐趣无穷。

 

五、悠闲空间的缔造

1、香港山顶大宅

这所漂亮的待购房子位于山顶,市值500万英镑,处于香港最好的地段。全大理石地板,落地玻璃窗,不锈钢楼梯栏,木扶手。到厨房看看:设备齐全,有不锈钢洗碗盆、西门子的设备、冷酒器。楼上是睡房。

这是主人房,你可以看到海港美丽的景色--天晴的日子你甚至可以看到中国大陆。你一定要看看,这浴室太不可思议了。有一个极可意浴盆,一个蒸汽花洒喷头,有两个洗手盆,全都铺上了大理石。难道这还不够吗?

2、法拉利 360 蒙特拿跑车

法拉利汽车公司的Ferrari 360 Modena跑车约需10万英镑。4.5秒便可以由零加速到60英里,而且十分好操纵,就像驾驶小型赛车。这车棒极了,实在棒极了。噢,这车时速大约可达180英里,但感觉不到比时速100英里快多少。你会看到,车真是开得太快了。

3、迈阿密随身保镖

我们提供很广泛的服务:有调查服务、事务保安和保安顾问,而我们的主要工作是为重要人物和富有的王室成员执行贴身保护。精英组会事先计划好对重要人物的每一步保护行动,作到真正的贴身保护。所以每个地点都会在我们的预先计划之中,不会出现突变。如果在办公室雇上一组保镖,为期四年的话,总共要用111.2万英镑。

4懒仔舒适懒椅

懒仔是世上最好卖的躺椅,真的!为什么?因为它舒服无比。极度的放松是六点按摩系统,能让你轻松坐在上面驱除压力,尽情享受。这款黑皮椅叫价约1100镑,可升降并椅背配有附加装置的椅型价钱则要高达14001500镑。

5、切尔西健身俱乐部
