Your furniture is a big part of your life, but then your pets are too. So, instead of spending hours and hours trying to stop the dog from taking up the whole sofa, or having to change furniture covers regularly after the cat has used the armchair as a scratch post, why not fill your home with furniture that has your pet in mind and solve the problem? Here are ten examples of truly pet friendly furniture to inspire you and keep your pet in your good books.
1. Dog House Sofa
This sofa is designed and made by Korean studio min n mun. The attached side table doubles as a bed for your pet, and we all know how dogs and cats love a cubby-hole to get cosy in.
2. Cat Hammock Coffee Table
Modern living can prove problematic when it comes to keeping your pets happy while still having enough practical space for you and your family to live in. This coffee table from E&Y with a hammock shelf for your cat to lounge in is perfect, and will, hopefully, keep the cat off the table and out of mischief.
3. Multi-Purpose Cat Shelves
If your feline friend prefers a higher spot to watch the world from, shelves are a good way to keep them entertained. These shelves from Hey! Cheese provide the perfect playground for cats, but also have enough surface area for your books and CDs.
4. Folding Hide-Away Pet Bed
Although this design is limited and might not be to everyone’s tastes, the idea from Midnight Pass is a great one – a hideaway pet bed that can blend in with the rest of your furniture when you need it to.
5. Pet Feeding Hutch
Bailey Fine Pet Furniture have come up with this ingenious design that holds all of your doggy accessories and hides them away. There’s even a drawer that hides away your dog’s feeding bowls when they aren’t being used.
6. Aquarium Sink
If furry friends aren’t your cup of tea and you’re looking for an inventive way to incorporate your goldfish into your furniture, this stunning sink could be the way to go. To top it off, it’s built with the health and well-being of your fish in mind.
7. Cat Tunnel Sofa
This sofa from Seungji Mun was designed with playful cats in mind. The tubes and hiding places make it a perfect piece of furniture for cat lovers’ living rooms, and of course for the kitties themselves.
8. Green Roof Bird House
Unfortunately, we don’t all have the time or the space that pets require, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look after other animals. This plant pot will look great on a windowsill, and provides a nice resting spot for feathered friends too.
9. End Table With Dog Bed
The cats have their hammock coffee table, so it’s only fair that dogs get somewhere similar to snuggle under – although anything bigger than a Jack Russell is going to struggle to get into this little nook.
10. Kitty Washroom
One of the main problems with cats is where to put their litter tray. This kitty washroom cabinet from Solutions hides away the litter but makes it easy for your cat to use, and for you to clean.
