So, not to be a Debbie Downer or anything but in these times of recessions and job losses are there really people spending $600+ on a "pet lounge" anymore? And I wonder what the markup is on these things ...

This product is designed and built by hand in North America. This is how much it costs to develop, produce and market such an item in north america. As a culture, we have become addicted to exploiting offshore labor, and have lost sight of the value of manufactured goods - and as a result we have decimated the homegrown craft economy. Fortunately, there is a growing segment of the population who values locally produced goods (witness the explosion of farmer's markets, craft fares, micro breweries, and a new appreciation of hand made objects, etc) While it's true that not many people are willing to spend so much on a dog bed, this money stays right here in our economy. There is a segment of the population who are willing to save up to purchase carefully selected objects, objects with a connection to a craftsperson, and won't end up in a land fill after lining some distant corporate pockets. A return to the hand made can save the planet.
