Stylish pet essentials for a design-savvy household

Howly dog bed

If you believe that design is for everyone, number of legs aside, then this is the kind of piece you’ll want to have in your home. Innovatively and imaginatively designed, this ‘DIY’ bed features a removable steel frame that gives this pet bed it’s safe and secure structure but can be taken out to render it flat for easy storage. We absolutely love the design of this piece. As the company’s website says, they ‘believe in companion animals’ design rights.’ Howly Dog Bed, HowlPot, $220.
