Caracus 16-Light Chandelier from Jonathan Adler By Bridget Williams, President, Sophisticated Living Media An unglazed Peace Hand executed in white porcelain that sits atop a square Lucite base served as my gateway into the wonderful world of Jonathan Adler, and I have since become enamored with everything in his collection, which sports a definite 1970s vibe. Partially through the process of renovating a nearly 150-year-old house, it's been fun injecting an eclectic mix into the historic framework. I am absolutely pining over this generously proportioned chandelier that would be an ideal companion for the tall ceilings in my kitchen. It's priced at $2,250 (jonathanadler.com). Dolce & Gabbana Embellished Crown Tiara By Claire Williams, Editorial Assistant, Sophisticated Living Louisville & Lexington Everything about Dolce & Gabbana is perfection. Even if I am in my pajamas watching Netflix, I could put on this tiara and instantly imagine myself as one of the glamorous models in their ads. Price upon request (dolcegabbana.com). e True 48 By Carrie Edelstein, Editor-In-Chief, Sophisticated Living St. Louis I cook a minimum of five nights a week, pack lunches and serve breakfast seven days a week. My average grocery shop yields anywhere from 30-50 pieces of produce alone for my family of five. To say I need more space is an understatement! e True 48 is True's brand new side-by-side refrigerator that has more than 29.4 cubic feet of space. And with little hands that constantly are opening the doors and staring at what's inside our refrigerator, the 120-degree stay-open feature might just put this baby on the kids' wish list! e price tag: $17,000. Anyone wishing to fulfill my kitchen fantasy should contact AUTCO Home, autcohome.com. Art Escape By Jeff Cohen, Editor-In-Chief, Sophisticated Living Indianapolis My wife and I are crazy about art and Italy, not to mention cooking, wine, great conversation and the Tuscan countryside. So when I first read about Art Escape Italy, and its extremely reasonable all-inclusive pricing, I knew an art-filled vacation would make the perfect dream gift for our upcoming thirteenth wedding anniversary. e brainchild of three friends from three continents and three decades, Art Escape Italy was conceived after an intensive course at e Florence Academy of Art in 2015. With a strong emphasis on high quality art instruction and a focus on the figurative and portrait painting, Art Escape Italy delivers a serene Tuscan vacation experience. Everything for a seven or 12-night course, apart from your plane ticket, is included in the price. In addition to expert art instruction in painting workshops, trips include excursions to Florence and nearby destinations, an exclusive winery tour, a cooking class and ample free time, making the trip ideal for painters of all level and their non- painting travel partners. Prices begin at €1680 per person for a private single room and €1260 per person for a twin share for a seven-night trip with five days of art instruction (artescapeitaly.com). Coravin Model Two Elite Wine System By Matthew Millett, Editor-In-Chief, Sophisticated Living Cincinnati As I'm starting to build my wine collection, I find it is going to be an absolute necessity to have a Coravin Model Two Elite Wine System (in red). Now I can sample a sip or glass to ensure my prized bottles are at their peak age before pulling the cork completely. Also available in gold and silver, the pouring system retails for $349.95 (coravin.com). sl Caracus 16-Light Chandelier from Jonathan Adler Coravin Model Two Elite Wine System Dolce & Gabbana Embellished Crown Tiara slmag.net 53
