Fabulous Pet-Friendly Ottomans

In looking through the latest In the Company of Dogs catalog I came across two products that I had to share.  Often I hear from my design clients that they want a way to disguise their dog’s bed so that it isn’t so obvious when entering a room. They desire a way to “hide” the bed so that it blends in with the furnishings versus standing out as many dog beds are often made out of fabrics that don’t “blend” well with most home decor.

Well, low and behold, as I was recently flipping through the catalog’s pages I found two pieces of furniture that have a dog bed that’s integrated into the furniture: yes…the bed is housed inside the furniture.  The Decorator Ottoman Bed is the perfect solution for pet owners who want to marry form and function that’s pet-friendly.  Check them out below!
