Style conscious pet parents are always on the look out for new ways hide the dog bed or at least turn them into functional furniture pieces. The latest new design trend in pet beds is all about rethinking and reworking furniture that we use every day to create sleeping and den spaces for dogs and cats.
Sauder Home Furniture has taken the concept to mass market selling entryway dog beds equipped with leash hooks and coffee tables with hidden beds.
Why not give your fur baby and yourself a lasting holiday goodie? A stylish dog/cat bed is an investment in your dogs comfort and happiness as well as your viewing pleasure.

So what to do with that old wine barrel you picked up at a flea market years ago and it’s been collecting dust in the basement? Keep using it as an end table or flower pot? Nah, Rock Creek Furniture Company at Etsy.com came up with a really smart DIY idea that you can try yourself or buy from them.
Beautifully , aged reclaimed wine barrels are turned into stylish dog beds and feeders that you can’t find at a mass retailer. This Colorado based company uses barrels from reclaimed American or French oak which are carefully reinforced, sanded and and sprayed with a high-quality clear finish for a lasting product.
You can change the feeling of the bed easily by experimenting with different fabrics for the cushion. Plaids will give this a classic country look while bold modern prints make it edgy and cool.
A reversible cushion with fleece on one side is a great way to add warmth for winter.
This can be yours for the same price as a case of vintage vino-$250 plus shipping.
It’s that time of year again when pet industry players from around the world gather at the annual Global Pet Expo in Orlando Florida from March 4-6, 2015 to scope out the latest and greatest products in the pet industry.

That’s one hour and fifteen minutes of full-on Kathy! Go girl!
Last year, Kathy launched her own pet product line with a huge emphasis on style and design.
Her beautiful patterns are modern yet also timeless at the same time. I especially love her Chevron print bed and pink floral reversible travel mat.
We are excited to find out what Kathy thinks about being part of the amazing pet world as she embarks on year two of her product launch.
If you are a design junkie like myself, you know that chevon prints are everywhere right now. The high quality dog bed brand, Jax & Bones is spot on with their trendy orange Chevron printed dog bed.
I like to think of dog beds in the same light as throw pillows to re-fresh your space. They are a beautiful home fashion accessory that can accent the color to your home decor.
Dara’s Pet Home Styling Tip: Match the colors of your dog bed to your sofa throw pillows, a bed spread, rug, throw blanket on your couch or even lamps. Just tie in the color or prints…even mix with metallics!
