They’ve already splashed out a staggering £487,000 on four gold-plated toilets for their sprawling Bel Air mansion.
But it would appear Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s penchant for all things glitz and glam has been taken to a whole new level, with the Lord and Lady of the Manor now reportedly shelling out an incredible £750,000 on six special-edition luxury beds.
Proving they will settle for nothing but the very best as they renovate their $11million home following the arrival of their newborn daughter North ‘Nori’ West, the couple have enlisted the services of the company that supplies beds for London’s exclusive Savoy Hotel.
Costing a whopping £125,000 each, the limited-edition Savoir Royal State Bed takes hundreds of hours to create from a unique combination of cashmere, carded Virgin lamb’s wool and Mongolian horse hair laid over hand tied, star-lashed springs.
Only 60 of the luxury items were ever created in honour of Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee, meaning Kimye are among a very exclusive group.
The bed, the headboard and the canopy are all covered in the same decadent gold silk used to create iconic Hermes ties, equating to some 1,600 miles of thread in total.
With the design based on models used by monarchs of the 17th and 18th century, a unique coat of arms created for the king and queen of the showbiz world by the Royal School of Needlework will be included in the £125,000 a-piece price tag.
Alistair Hughes, managing director of Savoir Beds, told MailOnline: ‘As a rule we never discuss clients’ particular orders. Suffice to say, with a bed like this Kim and Kayne will have little excuse to leave their bedroom.’
In splashing out on the lavish beds, the pair will join the likes of Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Elton John and Oprah Winfrey, who are all proud owners of the luxury items. Earlier this week, it was revealed that the couple had splashed out a whopping $750,000 on four gold-plated toilets for their sprawling abode.
Kimye have now joined the likes of other famous celebrities and members of royalty who also have gold plated plumbing featured their homes.
However, the couple cannot quite compete with the world’s most expensive gold toilet, the $5 million Hang Fung Gold Toilet.
The 24k gold bowl is a feature of Hang Fung jeweler’s solid gold bathroom in Hong Kong. The couple are also said to be blinging out their kitchen with a Swarovski-encrusted fridge freezer and almost $1 million worth of Electrolux appliances(see picture below)
A source told The Sun: ‘They expect the interior to cost twice as much as the property. They’re spending more than a million on a security system alone.’
And according to TMZ, the couple’s luxury home is also said to include a hair and makeup salon, bowling alley, indoor and outdoor pool, basketball court, movie theatre and custom gym.
‘It’s so exciting for them,’ a source told People magazine. ‘The house is gorgeous. And they really wanted and needed the privacy.’
Kim and Kanye are currently renting a property near the home of Kim’s mother, Kris Jenner, while they wait for the finishing touches to be completed on the Bel Air mansion.
A source told Radar Online several weeks ago: ‘Kim and Kanye have finally settled on a temporary mansion for their family to move into. It should be ready for them to move in the next two weeks.
‘It’s over 8,000 square feet and offers complete privacy, which was a big concern of Kanye’s. The security system is being upgraded and Nori’s nursery is being outfitted with surveillance cameras.’
And North’s safety was apparently the utmost concern for Watch The Throne rapper Kanye.
The insider added: ‘When it comes to Nori’s safety, Kanye isn’t taking any chances. Kim has had stalkers in the past, so nothing is being left to chance.
‘Of course, Kim wants everything to be perfect immediately for their temporary residence, even though it’s a rental. Family pictures are being hung on the walls in the house, and Kim is talking about painting Nori’s room.’
