Pampered Pooches: Luxury Pet Products from Puppy de Paris

June 24, 2011 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Puppy de Paris, luxury pet goodsFrom opulent pet hotels to pet-dedicated airlines and pampering day spas, we often report on the trends in luxury pet travel. Folks sure love spoiling their four-legged friends! Now Luxury Insider has spilled the beans about a new luxury line for canines, and it's positively swanky. We're talking a doghouse inspired by the regal facades of the Place Vendome in Paris. Here's the skinny about the doghouse from Puppy de Paris:

Ex-fine jeweler Karin Fainas’ "Appartement de Place Vendome" features gilded doors crafted from a House founded in 1885, with an archive of fancy doorknobs and elaborate closures that stretch back to the epoch of Louis XIV. Other French artisans are in charge of the kennel’s plush upholstery, stretching and folding the canine couches' fabric coverings just so. Other offerings in the line include "Le Canape Place de la Madeleine," a velvet bed hand painted with scenes from Parisian bakeries and fitted with lion's paw feet in hand-cast silver, and a baroque doggy bowl in gold-dipped bronze. Such extravagances come with a hefty price tag: about US$14,000 for the dog bowl to about $21,000 for the Haussmannian master apartment house. Chew on that!
