A WISH COME TRUE

My little Frenchie Oliver has always dreamt of having a little dog house, but living in a 500 square-foot NYC apartment hasn't giving me the chance to grant his wish. But, this adorable dog house set by Six Hands might just do the trick. The house/bed combo is made of Douglas Fir Plywood and a comfy Natural Cotton Canvas. Although both pieces can be bought separately, Oliver thinks they're the cutest when put together. Don't you agree?

WITH DOGS IN MIND

As a dog lover and owner of a French Bulldog, I'm always thrilled to discover great design solutions for my four-legged friend. I can't get over how cool and practical this doggie staircase looks in the newly renovated home in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The pet-sensitive staircase was especially designed by architecture studio 07Beach with narrower treads and shorter risers to make them more suitable for the owner's dogs. Not only is it a genius solution, but the stairs also look structurally stunning.  My Oliver would get a kick out of them, especially being a short-legged pooch.

MODERNIST PETS

Decorating around a litter box is not an easy task. But Seattle-based artist Crystal Gregory has come up with this beautiful collection of stylish cabinets to help cat lovers camouflage the unwelcome eyesore. Owner of two Canadian Hairless cats and two Italian Greyhounds, Crystal understood the need to take pet furniture to another level by creating Modernist Cat. The Collection is modeled with Mid-Century design principles—with utility and durability in mind. The cabinets can be arranged in different configurations to disguise unsightly litter pans, reduce litter tracking or be used as a place for your modern cat or dog to play, perch or sleep without compromising your home's fab style. I don't know what's cuter, her cool cabinets or her adorable pets.

GOOD DOGGIES

Don't you sometimes stumble upon certain things that just make you grin? Well, let me tell you how I couldn't stop giggling when I came across these hilarious lamps by English artist Whatshisname. They're absolutely hysterical. According to the artist, he created the Good Boy and Good Puppy lamps “as an item of everyday use that makes user uncomfortable with every use.” What's even funnier is that one actually has to step on the dog's fake business to turn them on and off. The lamps were designed to be part of an exhibition on London Underground stations, but sadly they were banned as they felt they were offensive. That's a shame. I guess they didn't have a sense of humor. Happy weekend!

FAB PADS FOR OUR PETS

It's not often that we come across furniture for our pets with such flair and beautiful details as this stunning collection by French company Bloom Room. Designed by Marc Ange, the Chimère line was just presented at Milan Design Week 2012 as part of exhibition Design France.Beyond comfort and functionality, each piece of furniture is a decorative element made with soft and sturdy materials combined with high quality manufacturing. The collection includes a dog niche, an aquarium, a rocking bird cage, a cat bed and a rodent cage. For sure, my Oliver would go mad for that cushy and über chic gray bed—plus it would look fabulous with our living room decor. Have a super duper weekend!!

A Sprouting Idea

It's been a while since I've featured goodies for our furry friends, so I thought this sleek nest for your pets will be a good reason to do so. Besides being a cozy niche for your dog or cat, the Kokon, by Creative Push, also doubles as a planter for your favorite perennials. Its contemporary design will blend in seamlessly with most decor, making a fabulous statement in any corner of your home or terrace. The Kokon also comes with a small plushy pillow so your precious little ones can curl up and enjoy a nice nap. By the way, it can also be used as a litter box by simply inserting a plastic tray through the back access door. If you don't own a pet but enjoy the company of tweety birds, they also have Zozio, a cool birdhouse with a planter on top. Double the fun!! Have a super duper weekend.
