Luxury Portfolio International has released the latest issue of its signature publication, Luxury Portfolio magazine, a coffee-table-worthy tome. A playful and sophisticated space by Rayman Boozer of New York’s Apartment 48 Interior Design graces the cover – a stylish window into the magazine’s September 2023 theme of joie de vivre. “The French art of a spirited, almost purposeful, zest for life was the muse for the latest edition of Luxury Portfolio,” said Lisa Klein Powers, managing editor.
