New York interior designer Betsy Boggs, who's been gussying up human digs for years, is now doing the same for canines. Inspired by Precious, her papillon-King Charles spaniel mix rescued from a road accident in South Carolina, Boggs began Precious Palaces dog beds with the ornate Marie Antoinette model—fit, of course, for a queen. Since then she's come up with an S&M studded faux-leather ottoman, for little toughies like her Luvy, and a Louis XVI canopy fourposter, purchased by the Princess of Dubai for her Pekingese. Among other favorites: the Chinoiserie-style Precious Pagoda ($3,500). 212-980-3677.
