Lady Gaga’s Golden Wheelchair
Lady Gaga, who’s recovering from hip surgery, has herself a brand new 24 karat gold wheelchair.
According to the Daily Beast, the chair was commissioned by Gaga’s stylist to jewelry designer Ken Borochov. Borochov, of the label Mordekai, completed the throne with only a week’s notice and worked with manufacturers across the country on each costly component.
It was a huge undertaking. It was made all over the United States. My assistant had to run around everywhere.
The chair is plated with 1.5 ounces of gold, worth about $2,600 with a tufted leather seat that was inspired by leather jackets. On Lady Gaga’s facebook page, it looks like she has nicknamed the chair, “Emma.”
