Interior Designers Recommend These Chic Dog Beds to Their Clients
They’re super practical, too.
Your pet wants you to read our newsletter. (Then give them a treat.)
A lumpy, worn-out dog bed doesn’t exactly scream “design goals” — no matter how much your pup loves it. Luckily, the internet runs amok with cute beds that will appeal to even the most decor-discerning of pet parents (and their comfort-obsessed companions). The following four even win the stamp of approval of interior designers and decorators.
While each one touts a slightly different style — from minimalist sleek to coastal grandma — they all have a few things in common: They come in colorways and patterns that could be mistaken for human furniture, feature simple builds that are comfy but not clunky, and stay oh-so-practical with machine washable covers and waterproof fabrics. It all adds up to a bed that you’ll want to rescue from that dark corner and put out on full display.
