Concierge Up, in contrast, will “execute any funded wish, across all industries, globally.” Founded by Walter O’Brien (CEO of Scorpion Computer Services and also creator and inspiration behind CBS’s popular drama Scorpion), Concierge Up provides “big picture” assistance for anything from installing a shark tank in your office to advising you on selecting winning race horses based on DNA and IQ. Concierge Up has the manpower, and the brain power, to see it through.

Florence Desk by Montanari Group
Minimalism can still be luxurious. The Florence Desk is a case in point. Hand-crafted from dyed oak and walnut, Montanari Group has fashioned pure elegance and streamlined it for efficiency. The drawn metal base with an antique chrome finish represents artisan craftsmanship with a modern sensibility. The practical elements of the desk – four drawers, three trays, two top flaps and a hidden compartment – offer plenty of storage space for gizmos and gadgets. Sure, Da Vinci and Churchill liked to work while standing, but they didn’t have the Florence in their office.
