Americans are spending more money on their pets than ever before, and that money’s not just going to fancy cat food and doggie daycare. It’s also going to intricate pet furniture designed by some of the world’s top architects. “In much the same way that, certainly for the last 200 to 300 years, just about every eminent building designer—from Robert Adam in the 18th century, to Le Corbusier in the 20th, to Zaha Hadid in the 21st—has at least at one point in his or her career turned their attention to designing a chair, so award-winning architects of the here-and-now are increasingly keen to include pet-tecture in their portfolio,” Tom Wainwright writes in the introduction to Pet-tecture, a new book from Phaidon that gathers some of the coolest pet-centric concepts the design world has to offer.
Check a few of the ideas out below. Whether you’re a design fanatic or just a devoted pet parent, these furniture concepts will have you and your furry friend swooning. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that these pieces will look quite so beautiful once they’re covered in fur.
