Top 100 Luxury Trends of 2014

From Poolside Champagne Bars to Glamorously Bejeweled Editorials

— January 11, 2015 — Luxury
Looking at the luxury trends of 2014, it is clear that the 1% are travelling in style. Affluent consumers are enjoying the very best of high-end goods when it comes to travel, homes, transportation and fashion.

This year saw an influx of luxurious travel options, such as luxe airline accommodations, luxury driverless sedans and comfortable luxury airline services. The vessels themselves were fancier then ever, including opulent party yachts, $100 million private jets and even lightweight designer bikes.

Architecture became lavish in location, like panoramic NYC apartments, submerged luxury homes and magical levitating beach houses. Expensive furniture focused more on design than function, as evidenced by carved lava couches, extravagant pet furniture and structural granite storage.

Looking beyond the luxury trends of 2014 to next year's big ideas, Trend Hunter's 2015 trend report contains comprehensive research.
