Pet furnishings go upscale


< Previous Page


The salute to home decor does not come cheap, which may be the one sticking point for companies. But owners are accustomed to paying dearly for almost anything for their pets. Those who market the pedigree products point out that, yes, the items are costly, but they likely will last much longer than the more cheaply made versions.

Cost wasn’t an issue for Lenzo, who benefits from the strength of the Australian dollar over the American. Ostrofsky’s prices were reasonable to her, she says, and the quality made them well worth it.

It’s the style that gets customers through the door, Ostrofsky says, but if it doesn’t function properly, they won’t be back. There’s also another factor that influences shopping for high-end pet furniture. How does the pet like it?

Lenzo says she is proud to have Bella’s cat furnishings in plain view, and she gets lots of compliments from friends and family.

"But most importantly," she says, "Bella loves them."
