An enigma of modern design, this basin-less sink in the Kardashian household boasts a sloped countertop with a slit for a drain. Kim said it was conjured up by her ex-husband, Kanye West, with help from their interior designer Axel Vervoordt and architect Claudio Silvestrin, according to People.

#2 Shaquille O’Neal

What would you do if you had a net worth of $500 Million? If you were Shaquille O’Neal, who has a net worth of the same amount, you would choose to invest some of that money into an extravagant tree house that is more expensive than some people’s actual homes.

The sports star appeared on Animal Planet’s “Treehouse Masters” in 2020 and revealed he had always wanted a tree house. The result was a massive tree house complete with a poker table, a full-service bar, and even an oil painting of Shaq. The exact price of the unconventional treehouse was not revealed, but estimates say that it was around $400,000, according to Nicki Swift.

Dubbed the Monster Plush Chair, the item was designed by KAWS and the Campana Brothers and is tagged at nearly $300,000 on one website.
