Pet Palaces & Pampered Pooches

Published by Joanna Whitworth in beds, furniture, pets, sofa

Just like family and friends, our pets are a very important part of our lives.  We nurture them from babies into loving and loyal companions, so it’s no surprise that many of us wish to spoil our furry friends as much as we can.

Pampered or not, every pet needs a comfortable place to sit and sleep, and so the market for personalised and extravagant beds pet has grown.  Think diamanté, designer fabrics and out the box designs…

 

The bright fuchsia fabric gives this doggy day bed a fun and feminine feel.  The bolster cushions with contrast piping add a touch of sophistication and comfort.

 

Bold lime green and aubergine colours create a real statement with this four-poster cat bed.  This design can be recreated by simply turning an old side table upside down and adding a piece of upholstered foam to the centre.  Turning the draw upside down means you can store any toys out of view.

 

Grey velvet and chevron pattern gives this pet sofa a modern and luxurious look. This simple style and classic shape of this piece of furniture means it won’t stick out next to most suites.  By using scatter cushions on the sofa in a matching fabric, you can really co-ordinate the whole look.

 

This fuzzy ‘cat bun’ is great fun and any cat is sure to enjoy sleeping the hours away in this warm and cosy design.  Felines love to snuggle and burrow so the cocoon shape of this bed makes it also great for play.

  

This upcycling project is a great way of reusing old suitcases.  However, if your DIY skills aren’t great we’d suggest not stacking the beds on top of each other!

When we think about how much time we spend carefully choosing wallpapers, fabrics and furniture for our homes, it’s understandable that many people also want their pets’ furniture to match their individual tastes.  Your pet may not notice that the pink piping on its bed matches the scatter cushions on your sofa, but if it’s comfortable that’s all that matters.
