When it comes to useless luxury items, this has got to be up there with the best of them. Interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard has collaborated with French brand Christofle on a pair of regal headwear.
The two opulent Martyn Bullard Crowns are part of Christofle’s “Folies” collection, a series of rare pieces signed by internationally renowned designers which debuted at this year’s Maison et Objet.
