Total Ellipse of the Heart. This trendy trundle is comprised of bent plywood covered with your choice of veneer (shown in Jatoba – discontinued due to unsustainability). This is a welcome addition to any home furnishing line up with the wide variety of veneers – aluminum, bamboo, cherry, wenge & maple (see below for examples ). The curved “arms” of the ellipse bed look like a bent skateboard deck (which would be a hot decorating choice BTW – slap a coupla Supreme & ZooYork stickers on it and your little shredder is ready to grind!). The creamy middle is filled with a machine-washable microfiber cushion. To positively pimp your pooch’s perch – go the extra yard and pick up one of those sheep skin covered cushions. While it’s label-mate the Wowo Dog Pod has been grabbing all of the headlines – we really think the Ellipse Dog Bed is the more stylish and useful of the two. The Ellipse bed is available for $799(CAD) directly from the designer at their Vurv – Wowo site.
You can finally rid yourself of those unsightly stainless steel dog bowls that you hide when guests visit your pad. Otis and Claude have designed these pupstylilsh, utilitarian works of art disguised as pet feeders to spark “Ooo’s” and “Ahhhh’s” from all your snobby designista friends. The sturdy base is constructed of Italian teak veneered over plywood and the bowls are sculpted modern ceramic forms. They even offer additional ceramic bowls sold separately so you can have a spare on hand if one breaks. Available at DesignPublic and priced extremely right at $58 a pop!
A bed worthy of a God! If there were ever a design god in the dog furniture world, Jon Wesley Rahman, founder of Holden Designs, Inc. would be that deity. An architect and furniture designer by trade, he feels the same way we do about designing dog products that are pleasing for both pooch’s and people’s perspectives. This slice of tastiness is a work of art disguised as a dog bed. Made from bent plywood with a Walnut veneer it is ideal for small to medium size dogs. The only down side is that it does not come with a cushion. Their web site states that they offer a Cornflower Blue cushion, but we can’t seem to find it. Don’t sweat it, because it works oh so well with an IKEA sheep skin happy pad (not included but available at IKEA stores for around $20). Thanks to Holden Designs, we can all finally burn our dingy old dog beds and blankets and renew our dog’s sleeping quarters! The bed measures 27.25″ x 22″ W x 11″ H. Available from designpublic.com for $250
