Helping you DESIGN the Life of Your Dreams DeAnnaRadaj...Helping You Design the Life of Your Dreams From the Outside In
In this continuing series of articles from the High Point Spring Market, we now look at what the Market had to offer for our pets...yes, furniture for the furry, 4-legged family members! While there wasn't as much available in product (or for cats, mainly dog focused) as I thought there would be, what was shown was excellent & high-quality.
One of the most popular furniture offerings was beds for dogs. A variety of shapes, styles, colors & sizes were shown-wrought iron canopy beds to simple cushions with removable covers fit all price points. A new vendor on the scene is SmucciToo!. This is a family owned business that has created a line of beds that "combine the beauty of custom fabrics, unique design elements & artistically painted surfaces." From the patriotic 4th of July Fireworks bed to the biker-inspired bed, there is a style for every breed & every owner!
With a patent-pending track on the edge of the bed, the custom designed sides can be inserted to suit your (or your pet's!) mood or decor. Each bed has 2 design options-there are different designs on each side of the "sides" that is inserted into the track. A custom design can also be submitted so that the bed coordinates with your home's decor. Then, a customed duvet is made to cover the cushion (or choose from available stocked offerings). You can also purchase a variety of covers to coordinate with the holidays and seasons.

Next up is another new vendor, PP LePoop Designs. This is a wonderful offering that allows you to customize a chair (or cushion or print) with YOUR pet's picture (this is for the cat, bird or other pet owner/lover). Using a high resolution digital picture of your pet, the image is transferred to leather & then upholstered on to a chair or cushion. Chairs are seasoned, kiln-dried hardwood, with a variety of wood colors & textures available.
These chairs are a great accent piece for any room, & serve as a wonderful conversation starter-one which ALL pet lovers will be able to appreciate.
Both of these companies are Made in America, you can order directly on-line & offer a unique way for you to show off your pet!
