Because an ordinary cat or dog bed just won’t do.
IKEA has been a go-to for humans on the hunt for affordable and functional furniture and accessories, from sofas and beds to organization systems and kitchen essentials. Now, the Swedish retailer has something just for animals—the LURVIG pet product collection.
The line was designed, with input from veterinarian Dr. Barbara Schäfer, to make sure that the products were functional and safe for cats and dogs. “It’s really important to use an animal’s natural needs and behaviors (like how they sleep, eat, or play) as a starting point,” IKEA designer Inma Bermudéz said in a press release. “Then we can design a product that fits in with our human needs, such as style and form.”
This cat house is versatile—you can put it on legs, hang on a wall, or place inside a KALLAX shelf unit. The front has a scratching wall for your cat’s amusement.
