We dare say there are many who would make a similar claim, but you would have a hard time finding people who love their pets more than we do. As many family members as best friends and companions, there isn’t much we wouldn’t do for our furry friends. Even so, we certainly feel your pain when your desire to get involved with your pet is in direct conflict with your desire to have an attractive home. Because, honestly, a plastic litter box can really bring down a great interior design.
Just as there is good and bad furniture for people, there is good and bad furniture for animals. While the aisles of the big box pet supply chain are full of unwanted, grotesquely colored accessories, a bit of sleep can result in some really nice pet furniture that will complement and even enhance the decor of your home. From mid-century dog beds to trendy cardboard cat teepees, these ten designs will keep you and your pet happy.
