Golden throne.

Words by

If you’ve ever wanted to know what it’s like to do your business on a $100k Louis Vuitton toilet, this may just be your chance.

LA-based artist Illma Gore has spent three months crafting a literal golden throne out of old Louis Vuitton bags. The project used 24 bags equalling a worth of $15,000 USD, including a $3k suitcase.

Gore sourced Louis Vuitton pieces from designer resale site Tradesy and the toilet itself is currently on display at the Tradesy showroom in California.

The fully-functioning Loo-uis Vuitton has never been used and would be a perfect accompaniment to this $45k designer fridge.

If you’ve got a spare $100,000 USD lying around, you can check out the toilet here.
