When people hear the words dog bed in a sentence, their first instinct is to picture some plush bed (in)conveniently placed on the floor of their home. But lately, designers such as Architecture for Dogs and Yark have struck an innovative, yet cohesive, balance between the animal and interior design worlds. These designers have truly taken the time to craft pieces of decor that not only blend into your furniture style, but also make a statement in the most direct way: we love our dogs,cats and birds, and most importantly, we are CHIC. Here is a roundup of some of my favorite pieces thus far! They are all innovative and can amplify the ambiance in any setting. These pieces aren't just for the animals, they are for the adoring owner's eyes as well!
