USD$21.8 million could buy you a lot of things – a mansion, a luxury sportscar, a round-the-world trip, and even leave you with extra cash to burn. But in Tokyo, Japan, that sum can buy you one (yes, just one) luxury one-bedroom apartment.

Dubbed simply “The House”, the world’s most expensive one-bedroom apartment is fittingly located in the most expensive neighbourhood in Tokyo, the Minami-Azabu district.

One great thing about traveling can be discovering interior design items you haven’t seen before. Perhaps the hotel you stayed in on your last getaway had a cool lamp in the lobby that would suit your living room just perfectly. Or maybe you spotted an armchair that would be just right – but it won’t exactly be able to fit your suitcase or carry-on.

When honeymooning at the Greenwich in New York, Isabel Rutland loved their furniture and design so much that she wanted it for her own home in London. Like many of us, however, she didn’t know where to buy it. For two years she dedicated herself to researching the designer hotel market and was able to launch Discover&Deliver this March.

Discover&Deliver is a bit like a dream wonderland for those truly dedicated to interior design and special pieces that you don’t see everywhere. So if you went wild at the flea markets in a foreign city or country and forgot you weren’t home and could just put it in your car, relax. The sofa that you just had to have can be delivered by Discover&Deliver. Even better, they will take care of all local taxes and custom duties and you can get an instant online quote. So before you buy that sofa, you can quickly estimate exactly what it might cost in reality.

In the comfort of your own home their shop lets you look through an extensive collection of designer pillows, glass ware, or tables. Do you have a particular designer in mind? Have a look at their impressive list of designers and if you find something you like, you can instantly buy it from Discover&Deliver. For example, if you like designer Arne Jacobsen’s famous egg chair, you can choose if you want a swivel or auto return in leather or fabric. You get a selection of three different materials, and it will be delivered to you within 8-10 weeks. Click on “Places you will see this piece” and the places, along with images of the egg chair in that setting, will show, like “W London”. It is difficult to not get carried away and forget about time and reason.

If you see something you like in a hotel or restaurant, like Isabel did, you can contact them to have their interior designers search for it. All you need to do is send them a picture and they will source it for you or propose something of similar look and quality. Remember that desk in the hotel lobby from last year’s weekend getaway? It could be yours! DISCOVER&DELIVER
