Prestige Houses is a Toulouse-based company that makes historic reproduction dog (and cat) beds based on designs from the over-the-top days when Marie-Antoinette and Louis XVI were running Versailles...
Prestige director Pierre Zordan uses specially trained upholsterers, wood-carvers and decorative painters to build these crazy testaments to French royal decadence, from canopy beds in the à la Polonaise style that Marie-Antoinette favored to a slightly more restrained Roman-columned cat box with Marie-Antoinette coat-of-arms carved roses.
