The Real Deal New York

Luxe Life from the January/February 2015 issue of Luxury Listings NYC

Hang on

The foliage in the park may be  dormant — but if you had this playful, sculptural coat tree from Fritz Hansen, you’re guaranteed to have a colorful “bloom” in your life. Designed by Danish designer Sidse Werner, this highly functional object — consisting of eight bent steel tubes with rounded knobs — is made to hold the maximum amount of winter gear, without sacrificing a stitch of style.  $1,163;

Villa with a view

Does the whole family love to ski? Hope to get the old college crew together for a winter vacation? Check out the Teton View Villa at Spring Creek Ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyo., newly available to vacationers. Kick back in style après-ski in this super-modern home — no logs and horseshoes here — that’s been featured in Architectural Digest. The five-bedroom retreat — made of concrete, glass and wood — accommodates 10 guests. $6,000 per night (seven night minimum stay);

Sunshine daydream 

Need a healthy does of vitamin D right about now? Head down to the Caribbean and check into the stylish Gansevoort Playa Imbert, located on the Dominican Republic’s lush north coast. The just-opened resort boasts 48 suites — one- and two-bedroom lofts, three-bedroom apartments and four-bedroom penthouses. Amenities include “a dramatic, three-tiered cascading infinity pool,” a spa with a “Hammam-style” sauna and a crescent-shaped beach. From $595 per night;

Watch out

This limited-edition timepiece, with its insides exposed, more resembles a futuristic jet engine than a wristwatch. But it’s inspired by something far more delicate: Art Deco stained glass. Designed by luxury Swiss watchmaker Hublot,  the Classic Fusion Tourbillon Vitrail consists of 251 components — 19 of which are jewels — perfect for the engineer or the aesthete in your life. The black alligator strap is just gravy. Available at Hublot at 695 Madison Avenue. From $103,000;

Cuddle Buddy

Baby, it’s cold outside. Stay home and get cozy with Restoration Hardware’s super-soft 555-Gram Cashmere Throw. Available in 12 colors, it’s like your favorite
cashmere sweater but better: You don’t have to get dressed. $249;

Cozy kicks

Say it loud, say it proud. These cheeky “Yuppie” slippers from Stubbs and Wootton are comfy enough to wear around the house but are designed to be worn wherever your busy life takes you: “Day into evening, from jeans to dinner clothes,” according to the company’s web site. Handmade with velvet (with a grosgrain trim), these sophisticated yet cozy slippers are available for both women and men. From $450;

Home plate

You may not drive a Bentley — or maybe you do — but you can certainly dine on one. Victory, a tabletop collection from Bentley Home — which “is inspired by the renowned craftsmanship and exquisite materials that characterize the interiors of all Bentley models,”
according to the company — features bone china plates and cups emblazoned with the iconic Bentley logo in platinum. Available at Luxury Living at 153 Madison Avenue. Price upon request;

Tea time

There’s nothing like a cuppa to warm the body and soul. Inspired by the flat, oval shape of river rocks, this Pebble Tea Pot Set consists of a 34-ounce teapot (with a micromesh stainless steel infuser basket) and four tea cups. The texture of the stoneware set is reminiscent of river sand and silt, too — it’s like a mini-vacation in the palm of your hands. $59.95; 

One for the road

Lexus’ brand-new NX compact crossover is an ideal car for city slickers in search of the perfect combo of size and style. Featuring Lexus’ trademark sleek interior design and in-vehicle technology (including a new remote touchpad), “the NX was designed to complement daily life while also being capable of supporting an active lifestyle on the weekend,” according to chief engineer Takeaki Kato. From $34,480; 

Snake charmer

This chic, three-candle Cobra Candelabra from Georg Jensen provides a touch of warm elegance during the bleakest of winter nights. Designed by Constantin Wortmann, the candle holder’s dramatic shape resembles the twists of a sinuous snake (hence its name); the mirror-polished stainless steel just ups its brilliance. $200;
