Samsung surveyed 1500 dog owners and a quarter of them admitted they wanted their dog to have a treadmill and TV or tablet.  %64 of the survey felt their dog would benefit from  more technology. WOW!

It’s no surprise that Samsung is pushing full steam ahead expanding into he pet market. I love my Samsung Scout Pet Cam for spying on my dog from my smart phone. Keep up the good work Samsung!

International Vintage Fabrics Turned Into Dog Beds

PupStyle readers know a dog bed is meant to be a home furnishings accessory, not just a eye sore in the corner of a room.

Vintage White Elephant is a new New Jersey based business making one of a kind handcrafted dog beds out of mostly vintage fabrics found from from elegant and exotic locations from Paris to Nepal.

These are investment pieces meant to be an elegant conversation piece to accent your home interior.  Think about one design for your bedroom and another for your family and dining rooms.

The unique fringe used in these designs really caught my eye.  I also appreciate the shabby-chic meets international vibe.  The use of various prints and colors keeps the eye moving and the design interesting.

The bed covers have already been pre-washed so no worries about any shrinking next time you toss it in the wash and it also has a protective vinyl inside cover to protect the down or alternative insert from and liquid messes. sweet!

Given these are one-of-a-kind pieces, and each is made by hand (no factory line for these beauties) and the time it takes to select the fabrics, these are really special designed to be admired.  Great Job Vintage White Elephant! The “Cherry’s On Top” design above is $275. Not bad for so much TLC put into a dog bed.
