Gone to the Dogs.

As I mention, last week I was in the Hamptons perusing the antique and home shops with a client.  One afternoon we popped into this fabulous shop and I nearly keeled over when I saw this.  A linen upholstered, nail head trimmed dog bed! I was all “I need two IMMEDIATELY!” until I saw the price tag ($900….each). I need new nail head trimmed sofas for myself, so the doggies will have to wait (decades) for these…

The next day I was walking through the Hamptons Designer Showhouse and lo and behold, in one bedroom was an ottoman/ dog bed with nail head trim! GENIUS! A pair of these at the foot of a bed for pups to sleep in (although mine would still sleep in bed with me no doubt) would be adorable!

It got me thinking about designer dog beds- and not the creepy kind that look like upholstered headboards complete with duvet and pillows, but rather some that would look amazing in a home. Cue ! Who knew? Granted, they are all exorbitantly expensive, but I still think they are fabulously entertaining! Click the images for links and prepare for your jaw to hit the floor with the prices.

I am DYYYYYYIIING over this lucite and zebra one! The only place my pups lie on a dog bed is at the office and this would be amazing.

For the more country styled home, this iron frame is darling…and horrifically expensive. Do people really buy these?

This bold frame could be refitted with a cushion in no time…. I j’adore it!

I mean, really. Antique gilt wood frame? Circa 1870??? Baxter would feel home here. It’s regal enough for his diva attitude (we’ve likened him to Naomi Campbell and Oliver to Matthew McConaughey in Dazed and Confused).
