Dog beds have always grossed me out. The way they pill over and get all matted down? I mean, I get that they are hard to keep prestine but they just always look so spectacularly nasty. Also, why do they have to be so poorly designed to begin with? On top of being a shapeless mess, they are the worst colors — some shade of navy, maroon, or forest green that would never match any home decor unless you lived in a horror-movie cabin.
Since even my pet-owning friends with the most discerning tastes would just have one of these slobber sacks lying around the house, I assumed that there wasn't really an option. That this was the only way it could be because these nasty beds were somehow the only things that made dogs happy. That if there were better designed dog beds, my friends would surely own them. But it turns out that wasn't the case at all! There are plenty of swanky dog beds out there. They just didn't want to do the digging!
I don't know if you've seen the most current styles, but there is literally a dog bed to match every and any home aesthetic. Is your house mid-century modern? Not a problem! Do you live more like a Real Housewife? There are options for you too. The possibilities are endless!
Here are the luxury dog beds that really just blew me away.
