The cat bed that everybody wants

This Adventure Cat Tent by Tinker Trading as sold out quickly in some colors and understandably. It is very cute, practical and it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg like some design cat beds you see around.

It is lifted from the floor making it easier to vacuum and it can be transformed in a hammock. The fabric cover can be put in the washing machine.

If you make some cat beds, check +deco previous post here.

DIY cat bed

This post is dedicated to my friend Suz and to all those cat lovers out there. It gives a few ideas for cat beds that you can easily and cheaply make by yourself. My favourite is the Mac bed! What is yours?
You can learn how to make the suitcase bed on Fancy Seeing You Here, the wooden geometric dog or cat house on HomeMade Modern and the cardboard house on Haute Nature. If you can’t be bothered to make it, you can purchase a cat hammock at Cat Crib

No dog, no life!

Do you love your dog? Do you think it deserves the best in life? This is the post for you, I’m going to give you some ideas, you’d better start saving though.
The kennel above, that inspired the title for this post, is one of the designs from  Architecture for Dogs. It is signed by the Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto and was inspired by his Boston Terrier; this elegant 0.8 mt cube structure is made of small panels of hinoki (which is a Japanese cypress) and some thick transparent acrylic boards that act as shelves.  The hollow central part hosts the beloved dog. Genius!
Even better is the Be With Me Sofa (below) by Min n mun, made of ash wood and upholstered with fabric.  It gives you the chance to slob on the sofa, stroking your dog snuggled in its own kennel. As you can read on the designer’s website it’s “a tool to communicate and share feeling between human and pet“.

Otherwise, if you like classical but stylish pieces of furniture, you can opt for the mpup kennel (below) also by Min n mun.

This one is undoubtedly much cooler but you could maybe knock one up yourself by building  your dog’s cushion 7 pieces of wood!
