Neroko is a Finnish design studio that was born out of “a great love for dogs and a passion for sustainable Finnish design”, which is to say that Neroko and Dog Milk are two peas in a pod. Their modern pet line includes solid birch beds and “habitats”, stackable ceramic bowls and birch food containers, and even natural jute dog toys! (And how cute is that little dog sculpture?)
One of the biggest challenges I face as a dog owner, besides vet bills (ouch) and ticks (grosssss), is finding cool modern dog beds and accessories that fit with my home’s decor. I don’t do ruffles, and I don’t do cutesy. I want fresh, clean, and sophisticated. I get really excited when I see options like the Chimère line by French design company Bloom Room that debuted recently at Milan Design Week 2012. Why can’t all dog stuff be this cool?
I’ve been SO excited over the past week or so to stash away all those horrible, bulky sweaters and long sleeves and pull out all my warm-weather clothes. Just in time for spring, Molly Mutt has updated their collection with four fantastic new doggie duvet designs. Following in the tradition of naming their patterns after songs, the new kids on the block are Bleecker Street, Nightswimming, Wild Horses, and Secret Meeting.
Sure, we all love the relaxing feeling of floating in a pool, the sun beating down on you while you dip your hands in the cold water at your side, softly swaying in the breeze. What makes you think your dog wouldn’t love it, too?
Binq Design’s pet products are minimalist yet a pleasure to look at… from their end table dog bed called Bloq to their collars and leashes, each piece looks to be thoughtfully designed and carefully crafted.
I spotted this Wagwear Tee Pee Hound Lounge (aka dog tent) over at Hair of the Dog. If you’re an outdoorsy kinda person or if you enjoy camping, then I think this might be a great solution for your camping companion.
Oh how I wish this doggie sleeping bag was still in stock at Dogs Department – I bet Beans would just love this since he’s an under-the-covers kinda guy.
