What’s selling at the pet store? At California’s Muttropolis Boutique, puppy chic rules.
When interior designer Georgia Goldberg couldn’t find pet products stylish enough to blend in with her home decor, she took matters into her own hands—and those of her husband, Steve, a restaurateur and nightclub owner. In 2002 the duo opened Muttropolis, an emporium of elevated dog and cat essentials, in Solana Beach, California. Today, with a second location in La Jolla and an e-commerce site, Muttropolis is a go-to for high-end supplies, from gear made by local artisans to natural treats from a neighborhood baker. Georgia gave us a look at the shop’s most popular pet goodies.
