Couture House of the Designer Dog Bed Duvet

Lilo and Lou began when interior designer Stephanie Veltri and her husband came home to find that their Pug Frank (nicknamed Lou) had destroyed the beloved dog bed of their Brussels Griffon Taz (nicknamed Lilo) There was dog bed stuffing all over the office! Stephanie felt bad getting rid of Lilo's favorite dog bed. She realized then how many dog beds must go into landfills instead of being recycled. Stephanie decided to keep the damaged dog bed but had a difficult time finding a dog bed cover for it that she liked. The dog bed covers and pet beds available on the market did not match the decor of her home. She then sat down at her drafting table and designed a cover for "Lilo's" old dog bed. The designer dog bed duvet was fabricated immediately and adored by both Lilo and Lou!

Stephanie realized that having a stylish, custom-looking dog duvet could really add to the home! The dog bed was no longer an unattractive item that took up space, but it became a stylish piece of furniture for her posh pets. Even better-she was able to save the old dog bed at the same time! Stephanie decided to make her designs come to life so others could share in her haute hound couture designer dog bed duvet designs!

While brainstorming packaging ideas for her designer dog bed duvets, Stephanie decided to give her line something extra special! "Lilo" and "Lou" had a small pillow they love to share on one of their dog beds. She thought it would be fabulous to design a pillow sham for the pampered pooch. "We have pillows, so why shouldn't our dogs! They are definitely treated as equals in our household." The design was finalized and that with every designer dog bed duvet purchased it would be tucked inside a matching dog pillow sham.

About the Designer

Stephanie Veltri holds a BA in Fine Arts with an emphasis on drawing and sculpture and a BFA in Interior Design. She has worked for one of the most prestigious high end residential design firms in San Diego, California where she received her professional training. She is active in the design community and is a member of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Veltri is an allied member of A.S.I.D.
Veltri’s canine companions are Taz a Brussels Griffon “Lilo” and Frank a Pug “Lou.” They enjoy singing their own version of opera at home with her. “It makes us smile, and the dogs like to be involved,” she says. When we go back to California the boys love to play at dog beach on Coronado Island. Lou loves to run right into the crashing waves while Lilo would much rather find someone on the beach with a picnic basket. The boys have their own car seats and a stroller!” Veltri exclaims. The interior designer currently resides in Alexandria, Virginia with her husband, and Lilo and Lou. “The dogs are excited about the seasons changing and running through the leaves. They are enjoying chasing each other in circles in the yard. However, their favorite thing to do is lounge on their designer dog bed duvets & dog pillow shams. We used to have to put the dog beds upstairs when company came over. Now they make fabulous conversation pieces!”
Stephanie Veltri is a supporter of animal rights. She has been deeply motivated by animal rights activist and celebrity Doris Day who has founded DDAF. Ms. Day’s lovely hotel in Carmel called the Cypress Inn is not only tastefully designed, but dogs are welcome there. “I think all hotels should be like this! After all, our dogs deserve the very best,” Stephanie says. Designer Nancy Corzine having two Yorkshire Terriers has inspired Stephanie in including your pets in your home design. “Be inspired,” Nancy told her once. Stephanie took that advice and thought, “That is exactly what I will do.” Thus, the Designer Dog Duvet came to be.
