Pet products aren’t limited to the mass produced stuff you can find at the nearest big box store, which tends to be shapeless and beige. You can apply the same standards of aesthetics to pet products as you can to your furniture and other items in your home, if you know where to look (and you’ve got some cash.) Here are 11 cat towers, dog beds and more with style to spare.
Nendo Geometric Dog Bed
Nendo’s adorable geometric pet bed is made from artificial leather, and it can either be a domed hut that offers shelter, or a cushion when they lay on top.
Cardboard Cat Cabin
Cats love cardboard boxes, but why not give them one that does a little more? The Cat Cabin is made of corrugated cardboard and is sold flat, but assembles into a cute little house with dangling toys.
Modern Pet Furniture Collection by MPup

Architecture for Dogs: 13 Designs
Renowned architects and designers were invited to design structures for man’s best friend, resulting in 13 wildly different architecture typologies with each designed for a different breed of dog. Some are built so smaller dogs can see their owners eye-to-eye, while others mimic dogs physically, like a pouffy white cushion for a Bichon Frise.
Midcentury Modern Furniture for Cats
If you’re into midcentury modern, this might be the cat furniture for you. The series from Modernist Cat includes three cabinets that can be stacked, set side by side or used alone. They can hide litter boxes or beds, or just be a fun place to play.
