It’s no secret that we love IKEA. Going shopping at the furniture megastore is an experience in and of itself. The best trips to IKEA are the ones where you set aside the whole day to go shopping. You get to see kitchens, beds, and closets that you wish you had and imagine the dream home you’d build with all of their furniture. Then, when you get hungry, you can stop by the cafeteria for some of their famous swedish meatballs, then get right back to shopping. Sounds like a great day to us. But IKEA just got a whole lot better.
IKEA’s newest line of furniture is called LURVIG, and it’s made specifically for your four-legged friends. That’s right! Pet furniture is finally here! IKEA designers worked hard with veterinarians to create practical and aesthetically pleasing pieces specifically for your pet. Our pets need a lot of love, and the pieces are meant to make your pets feel comfy and loved without sacrificing beauty. A lot of their designs are meant to work in conjunction with some of their most popular pieces of furniture, like pet beds that stack neatly into IKEA shelves. The furniture includes cozy places for dogs and cats to curl up, pet couches, and little nooks that you can easily add to your home.
They have two kinds of different pet “beds”, one which looks like a modern couch… but it’s sized for pets! And if you’ve got a big pet family, the cushion can be pulled out to double the size of the pet bed. The bed gets bonus points because the cover can be easily removed and is machine-washable! Talk about easy! The other follows the classic IKEA aesthetic and is a rectangular bed that can be fitted with a cozy cushion so your pup can sleep in style. The structure can be flipped upside down to give an elevated bed for your pup to perch on! Plus, the simple design makes it a pet bed with limitless DIY decorating opportunities (we can already see the Pinterest posts)!
They also have a sliding-door cabinet that’s been outfitted with hooks so you can have easy access to leashes when you’re about to head out the door to walk your pooch.
Although we’re dog lovers here, the collection also provides furniture for cats too! One of the items in the collection is a scratch mat that has straps to easily attach to a table leg, keeping those paws off of other furniture, like that nice upholstery on your couch. Although the mat is made for cats, it can easily be used to protect table legs if you have a dog that likes to chew on furniture.
Along with pawsome furniture, IKEA’s new line also includes things that you need for your pet, like bowls, leashes, and blankets for your car. Prices for these items and the furniture fall between $0.79 for a bowl to $54.98 for a cat house that’s in it’s own table. Excuse us while we make our next trip to IKEA!
