Word of the Day - Opulent


Opulent -- Characterized by rich abundance; luxuriant

Use opulent in a sentence:

These were all the trappings of luxury--the Baccarat chandelier, the original Rothko hanging over the Italian leather sofa, the state-of-the-art Sub-Zero refrigerator, the Royal Copenhagen dishware, flatware from Christofle, the rare orchid in the Steuben crystal vase, the silver mint julep cup monogrammed with the single letter “J”--but with every gastric rumble and every inadvertent brush against the slime covered walls, he was reminded that despite the carefully constructed illusion of an opulent, civilized life he’d created for himself, he was, after all, just a hapless resident in the belly of a common sperm whale.
