NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – It could be your chance to see how the stars live.

The Architectural Digest Home Design show lets you step inside the pages of a luxury home magazine for an up close look at the gorgeous goods.

“It’s 130,000 square feet of wow,” organizer Michael Rabatin told CBS 2’s Dave Carlin on Thursday.

Incredible luxury beckons at Pier 94, where visitors can dream about a life where money is no object. For $6,500 you can have an outdoor pizza oven, like the one owned by Jennifer Garner. It goes perfectly with the $14,000 Kalamazoo grill that Gwyneth Paltrow has in her backyard.

“We have the world’s only hybrid fire grills, so these are seriously powerful gas grills that can also cook with charcoal and wood,” explained Kalamazoo spokesman Russ Faulk.

The show also marks the New York City introduction of Fendi Casa, with couches in the $25,000 range.

“Fendi means luxury, we never compromise,” managing director Andrea Minnucci said.

Designers told CBS 2 that installing a high-end bathroom is a lot like owning a luxury car.

“You have a Mercedes in your garage for a reason. It is the same with the kitchen. In your bathroom you want something that will last with high quality and high style,” said Kiel Wuellner designer of Axor Fixtures.

Stanley Tucci’s home is adorned with pricey Axor fixtures, and filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola is bathing in style as well. His home features an upscale outdoor shower by Obo Rain.

“We wanted to have an outdoor experience that is as nice or nicer than anything you’d have indoors,” Obo Rain co-founder Jim Lobley explained.

Another highlight of the show, called dining by design lets viewers gobble up exhibits that shine like a 5-star restaurant.

Tickets to the 12th annual Architectural Digest Home Design Show cost $35.
