Elegance Champagne Classic Flute Set

Plastic party cups and mismatched novelty glasses have an undeniably nostalgic je ne sais quoi. That said, truly old-school (and well-heeled) hosts turn to Waterford, which has been producing drinkware for more than three centuries — and when an errant elbow sends a crystal flute or two crashing to the floor, they don't have to bat an eyelash. BUY IT: $175, waterford.com

Immense wealth means never having to suffer the plebeian indignity of chilly thighs in the garden.

Keith Body Sheet

Some would say it's practical to keep the fancy towels in the master bathroom and dry off on the patio with humbler stuff. We call that a failure of imagination. Break out the Missoni al fresco. BUY IT: $160, neimanmarcus.com

Oracle Touch Espresso Maker

You have to get up pret-ty early in the morning to spend windfall millions with gusto, which is where what Business Insider called "the Ferrari of home coffee makers" comes in.

According to the James Beard Foundation, you can make great truffled popcorn with butter, truffle oil, Parmesan, parsley, salt and sugar.

Riviera Collection Sheet Set

When Citizen Kane is over and the hour grows late, it's time to make like monarchs and guests at the world's finest hotels and curl up with Frette, whose luxury-bedding craftspeople have also outfitted the Vatican, St. Peter's Basilica and the Orient Express. As the experts know, the secret to truly decadent bedding isn't high thread count, but exceptionally high-quality cotton — and the sort of painstaking fabric-treatment processes one develops when queen and king sheet sets are actually destined for kings and queens.

Rolling Library Ladder Kit

A rolling ladder for the three-story mahogany-paneled library in one's new mansion is the sort of thing one has to commission on a case-by-case basis, of course.

BUY IT: $15,999 and up, integrityspas.com

Grandview Barrel Sauna

Private saunas are comparatively few and far between outside of Scandinavia, but doing all of one’s sweating in public is so inelegant. The Grandview Sauna comes standard with a heater from Harvia in Finland (and can be upgraded to a wood-burning stove with chimney) and is crafted from Nordic spruce and rustic or clear western red cedar, depending on the sort of aesthetic experience you’d like to pair with your pore-opening. BUY IT: $5,999, almostheaven.com

Brass & Glass Teardrop Chandelier

Chandelier selection is serious business, and it’s best to get one’s sea legs with simple pieces before moving to the multi-tiered, foot-of-the-grand-staircase stuff. This low-key fixture’s brass branches and hand-blown glass teardrops are just right for, say, hanging above a soaking tub, no? BUY IT: $3,900, horchow.com

Enchanted Forest Canopy Bed

Real talk: You can buy four-poster and canopy beds all over the place these days, and in and of themselves they are not especially exciting. This canopy bed — hand-forged in iron by American blacksmiths — is straight from the pages of a storybook, and most likely capable of taking flight from a bedroom window in the middle of the night. If this concerns you, you can request a chandelier. (We gave you fair warning that you’d be accumulating chandeliers.) BUY IT: $4,500 and up, stonecountyironworks.com

Third Rock Fire Pit Art

As Michael Caine notes (as Alfred) in The Dark Knight, "some men just want to watch the world burn."

Taliesin 3 Table Lamp
