The MiaCara Covo Cat Bed is a bentwood round tunnel that tilts forward so that your cat can keep an eye on the back and forth while feeling protected from the sides of the tunnel. What makes the Covo even better is how great it is to be a piece of furniture so it is suitable for your living room or any other space.
Some cats like their beds as part of a multifunctional unit, like the MiaCara Vista climbing tower. This structure is a climbing facility, a scratching post and a raised, covered lamb’s wool hammock.
If your cat likes nothing more than curling up beside your desk, indulge her with her own MiaCara Anello Cat Basket of ash or walnut wood, which has been shaped into a tray for a streamlined minimalist look. The basket is held over stainless steel feet of your furniture.
If you prefer more geometric aesthetics, designer Ilshat Garipov has designed the sleek flexible, multi-sided icosaholic flatbed cat bed called Geobed.
Another geometrically designed cat bed is The Cube by Meyou Paris. The Cube is a powder-coated steel frame that holds a soft, woven cotton globe, like a hollowed out ball of wool, and we all know how much love cat’s yarn!
Meyou Paris also has a cat house that is more organic. Called the bed, it has a beech foot from the middle of the century and a tent cover made of 100% wool felt.
The ball of Meyou Paris has a base made of steel and beech wood, with the wood pushed over the steel-like leggings. The ball is similar to the one in The Cube, but is a bit more elongated.
Elevele Cat Baskets are cozy, handmade, felted cat baskets made from 100% merino wool, complete with carrying handles to carry your favorite cats from room to room. While these soft colors are gorgeous, they also come in 20 other colors if you prefer more of a punch.
Does your cat like nature? Then your cat will love the Leaf by Elevele. I can only see one of them under a large specimen plant that would be so much fun!
Sweet as it can be is the Houseleek by Elevele. With sedums all the trend in interior and exterior design, a Houseleek cat bed seems to be the perfect choice.
Vaiva Nat’s Felted Cat Cocoons have a more abstract aesthetic that still feels very organic. Handmade wet or needle punching techniques were used in cocoons made from merino wool in a smoke-free environment.
If I were a cat, I would be exactly where I want to be! source
Oversized knitting has been shown everywhere in home decor, so it’s obvious that it also shows up in the form of a cat bed. This Ohhio design is made with huge needles of 100% merino wool.
As I said, the needles are huge! source
The Kitty Kasa by Arni Says is a modular system of cat trunks, cat trees and lots of fun, but this adorable Kitty Kasa has a serious side to it. They were originally designed for the ARNI Foundation but do not kill a Florida shelter, and if one of those cubic sells, 100% of the profits support the shelter.
Lycs Architecture also makes a modular system for cats called CATable 2.0. While the 4 modules are for cats, they are also for people to store books, memorabilia, etc., or simply use the cubes as chairs or tables.
The original CATable is a desk that solves the problem that your cat wants to be near you while you work. With the CATable you can hang them in the organic cavities under the desk surface and leave all your papers and pens intact, of course they still have access to your work space via one of the gaps, so your papers may not be so secure. source
If your cat likes to hang out in the truest sense of the word, there’s the cozy and dumb wall-mounted Chill Cat Perch. Which cat would not want their own wall shelf and look at the world from a cozy, sweeping oasis, complete with a cat mattress.
If you have more than one cat, Catissa’s massive Cat Climbing Tower is the answer. It even has cantilevered steps that lead to climbing, hiding, sitting, playing and sleeping places, with removable sheepskin cushions are equipped.
Catframe is a single unit with catapults, cabins, cushions and caverns for your cat (s) and storage for people where cat toys or treats or any number of items can be hidden out of sight. While we love this wood plank look, it also comes in virtually every color of the rainbow.
The very chic Hepper Pod Cat bed is upholstered in herringbone fabric and the classic black and white pattern would look great in almost any interior design style, but what I really like about it is the fact that the top is removable and on hot summer days the Day is a must.
The Padpod Pet Bed by Bark & Miao commemorates his 60s with the Bubble Chair by Aarnio Eero.
The inside of the padpod has padded, colorful cushions in 100% lavender wool. source
The Petmonster by Subinay Malhotra has some high-tech features like a built-in motion sensor that can communicate with your smartphone.
If you’re one of those happy people who share their home with a cat and a dog, and these cozy and chic cat houses have inspired you, you’re probably going to be our pick of 20.
