Although we usually focus on antiques and home decor for humans on this blog, today I’ve been looking at some amazing antique style pet furniture for your cats and dogs. As many of our customers and readers of this blog know, Greg and I have eight fuzzy children in the gallery and at home.
Our fuzzies aren’t too fussy – all our cats and dogs kick back and relax anywhere. Little Fozzy Talbot is even quite happy to make a bed out of his two buddies, Lenny & Squiggy, as you can see! But they’d probably also love some of the antique style pet furniture I found in my browse around the upscale pet furniture stores.
At a quick glance, you might think this Renaissance style sofa is big enough for a person. Then you see the pretty pooch and realize it’s pet furniture from The Posh Puppy Boutique for a puppy (or puss) with very discerning tastes! Our customers who buy Renaissance style furniture from us (on a human scale) will surely love this!
This rather grand Louis XVI style four-poster bed is for the pet who truly knows who is king around the house. The Precious Palace bed from Beyond the Crate comes in a choice of different fabrics, so you can match the colors and patterns of your home decor.
We too will start offering some Jonathan Charles pet beds this year. Jonathan Charles has only just started making this new product line, so they won’t be ready for shipping until the fall. But you can contact us now to place early orders and I’ll tell you all the options available.
For larger dogs, this Jonathan Charles dog bed is crafted in walnut in the form of an Irish oval peat bucket. It’s based on an original from 1760, with planked sides, a distressed finish, and patinated brass studded bands. The dog bed comes in three sizes – 25″, 32″, or 40″ in diameter. The largest size is $1495 at our discounted price, including free shipping. Dog not included! But isn’t he adorable? Many of our customers buy high-quality and beautifully crafted Jonathan Charles furniture from us – now they can treat man’s best friend too!
Then there’s the mahogany veneered Jonathan Charles four poster dog bed from the Buckingham collection for the very pampered pooch! This will be 28″ high and 22″ wide.
For fine dining, TeaCups Puppies and Boutique sells this charming raised pet feeder. The scrolled pattern and elegant legs create an old-fashioned look that will team nicely with the traditional or antique furniture in your home. I’m not sure we’d have enough space for all our darlings though, when it’s feeding time at the zoo!
Or, if you love classic Arts & Crafts style decor, perhaps your pet (or several pets) will be delighted to lap up their dinner and water at this fancy Arts and Crafts dining station crafted by the brilliantly named Bungalow Bob’s Pet Designs. He also has some nice Mission style pet furniture, for our customers who want to match their pet’s accessories to their own Mission style home decor.
Do you have a taste for Mid-Century Modern furniture? I reckon this cat tower from The Refined Feline would blend in beautifully with your interior design scheme. It turns a functional and fun piece of pet furniture into an attractive accent that will please the two-legged folk as much as the four-legged ones. It really is the cat’s meow!
I hope you’ve enjoyed looking at some of these antique style pet furniture photos as much as I did. But now I’ve written this post, I realize that I can’t possibly show it to Lenny, Squiggy, Ozzie, Jake, and all the rest of the EuroLux Antiques brood of pets or they’ll be hounding me to give them a home makeover.
