If you're not familiar, Inspirato is a club that combines two things previously thought incompatible: the sharing economy and luxury housing. Basically, folks with vacation homes in places like Maui, Tuscany, or Vail can lease their properties to Inspirato.
Club members pay about $1,000 per night to stay in these beautiful luxury abodes, along with a one-time initiation fee. Inspirato also provides other amenities like daily house cleaning, access to professional chefs, and other exclusive concierge services.
Through the new partnership, LG plans to outfit 22 select properties with some of its best high-end gear. The most expensive accoutrements will be OLED televisions—you know, like the best TV we've ever tested. That means when you're done having fun in the sun, you can relax and look at another stunning view from the comfort of the couch.
But here's the kicker: LG is also deploying the Styler, one of our favorite devices at CES 2015. To put it simply, the Styler is a dress clothes rejuvenation chamber. You put wrinkled, travel-worn clothes in, and fresh-feeling (and smelling) clothes come out.
The free-standing closet uses a built-in heat pump—a device that removes moisture but recycles warm air. LG claims that the technology prevents clothes from shrinking while they're being treated. The entire process uses steam, and LG posits that it can remove up to 92% of perchloroethylene—a residual chemical left behind during dry cleaning.
Best of all, it doesn't matter what you put in there. The Styler can handle just about anything: dresses, shirts, even irregularly shaped items like stuffed animals. For pants that lose their creases on long journeys, the door even includes an Easy Crease Care feature.
If Inspirato's services are out of your league (they're certainly out of mine), LG will be making the Styler available to the public later this year. It still won't be cheap, but at least you'll get to keep it when the vacation's over.
