They’ve Won Our Hearts, And Their Own Sofa!
August is National Dog Month, and we are looking at one of the most popular pet-lifestyle trends…pet sofas. Yes, you heard it. After years of sitting with us on the couch, and for some of us, snuggling in bed watching tv, many are now upgrading their living spaces to include a special couch just for their pooch(es)!
So what is a pet sofa, and how does it differ from a traditional pet bed? The primary difference is that pet sofas are elevated off the ground and mimic the design and feel of normal furniture we would include in our living areas.
This trend is growing because, as we become more design conscious with our living spaces, pet beds are losing their appeal. Instead, having a miniature piece of furniture that fits in with your decor is just the thing to keep the visual harmony in your living area. Pet sofas also make a statement. They indicate how much you care for their comfort and overall lifestyle experience. They have also become somewhat of a status symbol, largely because they come in all shapes, sizes, finishes, and they are generally quite costly.
Perhaps one of the most unique pet sofas on the market is from LordLou.com, a European pet furniture company that specializes in luxury pet beds and sofas. It’s called the Massimo, and its clean design helps it fit into a variety of decor styles. Made entirely from genuine Italian cognac leather its low profile provides a safe and comfortable resting experience for your pet. The list price of this luxury pet sofa is upwards of €995, which is the equivalent to around $1,200. Of course, there are many more options available that are less expensive, but if you are looking to make a statement, the more lavish and unique the pet sofa, the better.
