Our pets may be our pride and joy, but their bowls, beds and balls are far from easy on the eye, let alone the nose.
Splashing over £4,000 on a huge beech dog chair with a pure down cushion might be a step too far (see Howe’s extravagant offering below), but there are smaller, more affordable ways to give your pet paraphernalia a makeover.
You have to look at this stuff every day, so treat your pet’s accessories as an extension of your own style with this rainbow-splattered bowl by Brooklyn-founded, LA-made homewares brand, btw Ceramics. Grab one our side of the pond through Aurora Pets, for £37.
A bottle of Aesop hand wash is a sure signifier of style, so why not extend the luxury to your pets? Pick up a bottle of Animal skin and fur wash, £29, with its fresh notes of lemon, tea tree and spearmint.
Why leave your pet’s treats in their ugly packaging when Jonathan Adler has a circus-striped container for the job? The Vice Woof canister, £130, comes in orange and white or black and white.
Indie brand Kalinko specialises in rattan accessories handmade in Burma. Your pet deserves nothing less than artisanal homeware, so elevate their sleeping arrangements with this cosy bed, £320.
Now every member of the family can enjoy Henry Holland’s brilliant marbled ceramics. The furry ones can feast from a personalised pet bowl, for £85. Unpersonalised options cost £65, with smaller bowls costing £35.
Visit Anya Hindmarch’s Pimlico “village” to pick up this stylish — and oh so practical — dog poo bag charm, £125, and grab a doggie snack from her latest pop-up, Anya Houndmarch.
You still carry your dog’s tennis balls in your hand or — shudder — a bag? What you need is a ball keeper in chic Italian leather. Such as this one, £85 from Fantastical Creatures Club.
For the dog who has everything, blow the budget on a beautifully made dog bed from Howe. Costing £4,244 excluding the fabric, this is the crème de la crème of homeware for pets.
