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.
Living the PupStylish life means that every aspect of your pets world has a style element incorporated. If you are an interior design junkie or just appreciate a tidy organized home, check out Harry Barker’s line of Sweet Grass dog toys, hemp toy storage bins, food bins and modern leash hooks.

It’s a breeze to keep your dog toys stylist too. One of my pet peeves are ugly dog toys laying around my house. If a toy is going to be out on the floor, I want it to be interesting or attractive for me to look at as well as fun and safe for my pet.
Harry Barker’s Sweet Grass bone toys are so pretty that you won’t mind seeing them all over the house $12.
Dog food bags are not only space hogs, but down right ugly if you don’t have storage to hid the. If you appreciate a softer, natural look as opposed to the usual metal storage cans, these are ideal for you. The canister is sturdy, recycled steel and the outside is covered in Sweet Grass.

Every dog truly deserves to be treated like royalty. A PupStylish dog starts with good grooming and high-quality grooming products make a HUGE difference.
I’ve tested out countless grooming products over the years and I can promise you, the quality of the ingredients makes a world of difference not only to your dogs appearance, but their health.
My new rescue Mr. Oliver, was saved from a puppy mill and suffers from itchy skin. I’ve tested out many different brands of grooming products on him and found Prince Lorenzo’s Royal Treatment line of shampoos and conditioners to be top-notch! Oliver’s coat is soft, shiny and I’ve noticed A LOT less scratching since I tested them out.
His products are made from %100 hand-picked organic ingredients which I love. They are also manufactured in a human cosmetics facility in Italy where zero harmful chemicals are used. YAY!!!!
What really grabbed my attention is that they are tearless. Like baby shampoos, you don’t have to freak out if you get shampoo in your dogs eyes, so go ahead and wash that kissable face!.
Not only are you giving your dog Royal Treatment (literally) but a portion of the net proceeds are donated to Animal Aid USA which offers FREE spay and neuter services to low income areas and saves an average of 150 dogs monthly. Their story will soon appear on the Meredith Vieria show.
The shampoos cost $29.95, conditioners $27.95 and instant bath spritzers for a quick coat shine and fresh smelling pooch are $24.95. Prince Lorenzo Borghese is offering PupStyle.com readers a special %30 discounton regularly priced shampoo, conditioner, and spritz using the discount at Royal Pet Club code PUPSTYLE from now until April 1, 2015.
