What if you found a treasure that you looked at -- even touched --and it drew you into one of those moments when life is a little more intense, when you stop and look at the world a little differently and realize that you've found a piece of earthly perfection.

This is the the idea behind sumptuary.com -- elegance entwined with opulence, art inseparable from its setting. Whether a painting as the focal point for a living space, a robe as wearable art, or jewelry as most personal adornment, each piece complements the person for whom it was created or chosen.

You are invited to explore the galleries of sumptuary.com, filled with works described as "a sumptuous delight" (The New York Times) and "exquisite" (The Toronto Eye) -- and inspiration for your dream.
