For those among us who are sad that France's Ancien Régime is nothing more than a sumptuous memory, the lifestyle and furnishings of the Bourbon monarchy live on in a series of desktop computers made by George Chirita. These all-in-one PCs echo the eras of Louis XIV, Louis XV and the First Empire with designs that are pure indulgence.
There's gold leaf around the display, plus brass, bronze, alabaster, malachite or lapis lazuli accents. Each system is handmade and comes with a matching keyboard and mouse, providing a touch of elegance to any chateau. These imperial systems start at $22,000, and Chirita has matching USB memory sticks for $1,200 each.
