Most Expensive Doors In The World
Gioconda Shine Door
The Gioconda Shine Door comes from Bucharest, Romania’s “Pinum Doors & Windows” showroom. This massively studded door is part of Matilde Durante’s Diamonds Line, which contains ten different styles of luxury doors that may be customized with valuable stones.
This door not only comes with 31,707 Swarovski crystals, but it also comes with a hefty price tag of $34,900. The door, constructed of ecological leather, is one of the most costly in the world, and it is likely to be the most expensive in Romania.
Ueno Toshogu Shrine
Since 1651, the Karamon (or Chinese-style gate) of the Ueno Toshogu Shrine in Tokyo, Japan, has protected the Shinto-style destination. It’s gold-plated, which makes the carvings (which include birds and flowers) glisten. Legend has it that when it becomes dark, the two dragons on either side of the Shinobazu-no-ike Pond descend to drink.
The bronze peacock doors have graced the historic Palmer House in Chicago since it reopened in 1873 after being forced to close in the aftermath of the Great Chicago Fire in 1871. Louis Comfort Tiffany of Tiffany & Co. created these distinctive embellishments for the C.D. Peacock store, which was previously housed on the hotel’s first floor.

The bronze and iron panels that originally adorned Selfridge’s elevators have been transported to the People’s City collection at the Museum of London. These sliding doors, which were installed in 1928, are an example of the Art Deco style, with silhouetted images representing the 12 zodiac signs.
