Vivre doesn't kid around when it comes to living the beautiful life. The luxury catalog and e-commerce retailer sells very high-end gifts for men, women, and children, as well as for the home. Its catalog, distributed biannually, features more than 150 brands as well as interviews with designers, such as Michael Kors and Vera Wang. It boasts a distribution of about 1.5 million. The average customer transaction is approximately $525. The company opened its first Escape by Vivre shop on Paradise Island in the Bahamas in early 2007. (Other resort destinations may be next.) CEO Eva Jeanbart-Lorenzotti (who, along with her husband and two children, appears in company catalogs from time to time) founded Vivre in 1996.
