We’d venture to say that there are many out there who would make a similar claim, but you would be hard-pressed to find people who love their pets more than we do. Just as much family members as they are best friends and companions, there’s not a whole lot that we wouldn’t do for our furry friends. All of that said, we certainly feel your pain if your desire to dote upon your pet is in direct conflict with your desire to have an attractive home. Because, in all honesty—a plastic litter box can really bring down a great interior design scheme.
However, just as there is good and bad furniture for human beings, there is good and bad furniture for animals. While the aisles of the big-box pet supply chain might be brimming with all manner of undesirable, grotesquely-colored accessories, a bit of sleuthing can lead you to some truly beautiful pet furnishings that will complement and even heighten your home’s décor. From midcentury-style dog beds to trendy cardboard cat teepees, these are ten designs that will make both you and your pet happy.
