The US$1 million piano New York Serenade, by Steinway & Sons, looks as good as it sounds. The dazzling instrument is reminiscent of the golden jazz age, a statement piece that Jay Gatsby would no doubt acquire to decorate his extravagant mansion.

The masterpiece is adorned with 164,000 hand-set cubic zirconia stones, outlining New York's skyline and the city's landmarks - Central Park, Grand Central Station and the Brooklyn Bridge. The sound is also of superb quality. The piano's high-resolution player system allows you to play it from a wireless electronic device. There's nothing more soothing than playing sweet jazz late in the night, serenading the entire New York City in your flat.
