When writing a post about a Multifunction and multi-user desk is shared by people and cats, I learned of a whole world of furniture designed for pets, some of which is a whole lot nicer than much of the stuff designed for humans.
One company doing beautiful stuff is Petsmood, which calls this “An armchair with headrest for a pet that enjoys family life as a real star.” And at 1500 Euros (US$ 2089) those dogs certainly are getting the star treatment.
It is all beautifully made from sustainably harvested woods, and designed by Marina Sciarrino, who…
graduated “cum laude” from the Facoltà d’Architettura dell’Università “Federico II”, she draws a path in constant connection between art, architecture and design. Very sensitive to the well-being and to the organization of the spaces, she puts her insight and her sensibility into a functional and essential design and she conceives the innovative furniture of Petsmood..
The Tavolato serves two functions, a lower level for the dogs and an upper level that could be used as a coffee table, it’s more than just an expensive cushion on a base, so I suppose at 1999 euros ( $US 2784) it is a multifunctional bargain.
