Abstract

Differences between 'old' and 'new' luxury:

-Handcrafted by an artisan versus well-designed and offering precision assembly.

-Precious natural materials (e.g., marble, gold or polished wood) versus high-tech and machine produced materials (e.g., polished concrete, stainless steel and high-grade laminex).

-Things that are timeless and reflect wealth/aristocratic values versus things that are modern, 'hip', not overtly ostentatious.
