A dog is a great friend, a bro that’s always there when you need him while a cat is a sneaky and cute little thing that knows you can’t resist its charm and doesn’t hesitate to enjoy the situation. They’re so different and yet they’re both so lovable that all you want to do is make them a part of the family. That means they get to have their own furniture, toys and accessories. Since cats tend to be more fussy and picky when it comes to that, we thought you might like some help so we made of selection of modern cat furniture that both you and your feline friends might enjoy and we also added a few stylish designs that dogs would find cool too.
Cats like to climb on things, to scratch stuff to sharpen their claws but also to chill out and to nap…a lot. This Trixie set offers a little bit of everything. It has a cozy little hammock which you can hang on a wall, a closed module with a small entrance perfect for playing hide and seek or napping and a scratching pole. You can get it from Amazon.
The Feline Cloud is a wall shelf designed specifically with cats in mind. It has two platforms with soft, magnetic pads on them and it’s made of powder-coated steel. The platforms looks a little bit like clouds, hence the name. They provide cats with a comfortable surface to sit on and they can be installed anywhere on a wall. Cats usually enjoy finding a high vantage point and observing everything that’s going on in the room from there.
Aren’t these shelves cute? We love the cat silhouettes. They come in sets of three and they give an idea of how a cat might enjoy sitting on them. You can install them above the living room sofa or around the TV, in areas where cats usually like to climb on furniture. Of course, you don’t have to be a cat owner to want these shelves in your home, although they wouldn’t make a lot of sense otherwise. Available on Amazon.
The list continues with Katris, a set of modular blocks which can be arranged and combined in lots of different ways and configurations to create all sorts of things like a bookshelf, a cat scratcher, a coffee table or a cat tree. It’s something that both you and your cat(s) can enjoy and share. After all, pets are part of the family. The set includes 5 modules which can be secured together with clips.
Although they like to sleep a lot, cats are also playful creatures who enjoy hide and seek games and like to explore new spaces, smell new things and sometimes even make new friends. That being said, we think this maze would definitely make them curious. It’s not just fun but also educational, teaching cats how to find their way in a maze.
Cats needs a surface which they can scratch…it’s in their nature to sharpen their claws and it’s your responsibility to let them do it. In other words, don’t blame your cat for ruining your sofa unless you can offer an alternative. The 4claws scratching post might just do the trick. It’s tall which makes it comfortable and it’s easy to install plus it’s 100% recyclable.
Cats are notorious for ignoring those beautiful playgrounds and cozy beds that we get them and for preferring the cardboard boxes that they come in. that makes it tricky to find furniture and toys that cats actually want to use. We think the Vesper set has a good chance of passing the test. It has a few elements that cats have proven to enjoy, like a tall scratching post, cubes to hide into, soft cushions to sleep on and a perch at the top from where the cat can keep an eye on everything.
Another thing that cats love to do is sit on the windowsill and look out. They seem to enjoy looking at the birds, the cars and the movement of the leaves on trees. It actually sounds like a very peaceful and relaxing activity and you can make it even more enjoyable by getting your cat one of these Kitty Cot hammocks that mount to the window with suction cups.
The beauty of modular designs is that they allow various different transformations to be made and a lot of space to be saved. When it comes to cats and their furniture and accessories, every idea is welcomed since there aren’t so many options anyway. The Lynks modules are pretty interesting in this sense. The coolest thing about them is that they have replaceable pads which means they’re very durable. In addition to that, the two elements can be arranged in lots of different configurations.
What makes a scratcher good? Well, a few things actually. First of all, the cat has to love it and it order for that to happen the scratcher needs to attract the cat in some way. Its size, shape or placement can influence that and it doesn’t hurt to use some catnip as well. Second of all, you have to like it too. Most scratchers don’t really look nice. In fact, they can be pretty unattractive and they don’t exactly fit in any home decor. In that sense, PetFusion is an exception. It looks good and it’s also lovable from a cat’s point of view.
Another thing that cats love is a cozy little hole to crawl and hide into. That’s why they love cardboard boxes so much but boxes are unaesthetic whereas products like the ComfyCat Cave are not. This cute cat cave is made of merino wool which makes it really soft and cozy as well as pretty flexible. It’s easy to clean and big enough for pretty much any cat. A nice detail is also the design and the beautiful choice of colors.
Cat caves or pods are pretty cool because cats usually love to sleep in them and also because there are a lot of different designs and styles to choose from which means you can pick one that matches your home decor. If you’re looking for something simple and chic, check out the one we found on Amazon. It’s actually nice not just for cats but for small dogs too.
It looks like a regular end table/ nightstand but as soon as you fold down the front panel a cozy little cat bed appears. Inside there are two storage baskets made of fabric and on each side there’s a sisal scratch pad. Isn’t this a nice blend of looks and functionality both for a cat and its owner? Available on Amazon.
This Pawhut is really cute and looks like a tiny little cat’s house. its design is sleek and modern and also pretty versatile. You could use this as an end table but also a nightstand without worrying it wouldn’t look good in the room. So there you have it, an actual piece of furniture just for your cat with a design that you can be proud of. This is actually one of our favorite cat furniture pieces ever.
This is a satellite cat tree that looks like a little tower on three legs. It has two cozy nooks which means two cats could take a nap in there at the same time, each in its hut. On the back side of the tower there’s a scratching surface. The interior and the exterior are covered in micro-plush fabric which makes this tower super cozy. Available on Amazon.
How chic and fancy will you sound when you say you bought your cat an infinity bed? We’re talking about the lavish but simple Penn Plax CatWalk bed, a stylish piece of furniture designed for cats. It has a traditional design which features four tapered legs attached to a circular bed that has a very soft and comfy cushion secured with velcro strips.
This seems like a nice activity center for kittens. The scratching pad is fun to climb on and there are actually three cool napping spots. One is inside the bottom module, another just above it and the third one is on top. Adults cats might find this piece a bit small and uncomfortable. Available on Amazon.
Enough with the cats for now. Sure, they’re fluffy and cute but dogs are just as charming in their own way. Some pet furniture pieces are in fact suitable for both cats and dogs, like the BowHaus side table. There’s plenty of space inside for a small to medium-sized dog and a cat would surely have no complaints in this sector. There’s also a sliding door which you can close if needed and perforations which let the air in.
A similar product is the ZenHaus end table which is made of fiberglass with a shaterproof glass top and which has a contemporary design and an oval shape. The swing door is removable. You can find this in several different colors. It’s suitable for pets under 25 kg (55 pounds) which means most dogs would fit inside and cats would have no problem sharing it.
Looking for something a bit more classy? How about the TownHaus? This elegant end table is made of wood with mahogany stain and doubles as a cozy sleeping nook for your dog (or cat). The design is simple and elegant and the molding is a nice touch. The door is removable. This can either be a snug bed for your pet or an elegant cover for the litter box.
This is the Lotus Cat Stand, a sleek activity center for cats which fits nice in a corner. It’s an elegant version of a cat tree with a rather refined and sleek design. It can potentially be used by up to five cats. There’s a single sleeping nook at the bottom and a single scratching board which could spark some conflicts but can also encourage cats to share.
Encourage your cat or cats to exercise more and to have fun while doing it. You can get nice results with one of these wall-mounted activity cat trees that let cats climb, scratch and observe their surroundings. They also have little hammocks to relax in. You can find out a bit more about this cool system on Amazon. It looks like a really fun and playful system and it takes up zero space on the floor which makes it practical for small homes.
Indoor cats come with a litter box and that can be problematic. No matter how you put it, a litter box is not aesthetically-pleasing. That’s why we look for ways to conceal them. One of the options is this elegant piece that we found on Amazon. It has two sliding doors, small tapered legs and a circular opening on the side. You can put the litter box inside and the cat can get in and out as desired.
If this looks like a miniature sofa that’s because it is. It’s a sofa bed for indoor pets (like cats and dogs). Its design is modern and elegant, featuring a solid wood frame, stainless steel legs and velvet upholstery. The cover is waterproof and washable. You can find more similar products in the Beagle collection by TOV Furniture. You could put this piece in the living room, on the hallway or even in your bedroom so your pet can sleep in the same room with you but on its own bed.
