Furniture meets cat lovers for modern designs that help you perfect your work-pet balance: Part 3


Do you have any cats? Well, I have two and honestly tending to them can sometimes be a task by itself. Sometimes I do wonder, are they my pets or am I theirs? I spend most of my time running around and catering to their catty needs, but besides their nitty picky attitude, I do love them to death. If you love your cats as much as I love mine, I’m sure you’d like to add a few tidbits in your home that they could play with, rest on or simply have a gala time with. So, we’ve curated a bunch of cat-friendly furniture that your cats and you will love!


In all the desk designs I’ve seen over the years, this is a first for me! It’s called ‘Ascend’ and it’s been created by Dan Devine for all the cat ladies and fellas out there. Like any cat person will tell you, the moment you give attention to anything but your furry friend, they’ll find a way to lounge on your keyboard or knock over your utensils until it’s back on them! Designed with this in mind, the wood desk has been crafted with multiple ramps and landings for cats to perch up and play. If you can’t fight ’em, invite ’em!

The Cat Flat has been carefully designed based on the advice of Sweden’s first cat psychologist, Susanne Hellman Holmström, who brought to light the 10 necessities apart from basic essentials that cats need for the best emotional and physical health. The needs range from scratching, cleaning fur, playing, discovering, being social, etc. and Cat Flat takes care of them all keeping in mind they spend most of their time indoors. Think of it as a hybrid of a home and a jungle gym for your cat.

The Circle Zero from PLUTO is a smart litter box that takes care of your cat’s business. Designed to be fully automated, fully enclosed, and exceptionally silent, the litter box comes with a completely enclosed design to provide a private experience. Sensors on the box detect the presence of the cat and wait for a full 7 minutes after they’re done to automatically (and silently) scoop the waste from the litter and store it separately while completely containing and eliminating any odor too. Once the waste compartment is full, you can use any bag or liner to collect it and throw it away.

The Gatrimonial bed frame, made by a company called CatLife, made this dream a reality. They make furniture that doubles as an adventurous cat’s dream. At first glance, the bed frame looks like a hollow base with circular entrances in each corner. It has plenty of space for your cat to stretch its limbs underneath your bed. When you lift the mattress, it reveals an elaborate maze to keep your feline entertained. The frame also has two sections with a splattering of tiny paw-sized holes that could either be peep-holes, or a little trap for unsuspecting paw swipes. Your ankles will not appreciate it, but your cat will love the hunt.

The designers with Build Tiny recently built and completed a tiny house called Cyril House, which was warmly named after the (human) client’s grandfather who loved tiny houses. The tiny house has all the perks we’ve come to expect and enjoy inside the walls of tiny homes, but Cyril House was also built for cats. You’ll find plenty of floor space for your cat’s litterbox as the designers at Build Tiny designed the bathroom to optimize its overall space so that homeowners can enjoy spacious showers and plenty of room for hygienic routines.

The Kikko Table by Renata Wites and Ada Brożyna for Labbvenn serves as a side table you could place in your living room or bedroom, as well as a cozy spot for your cat to chill in! The lower section of the tables comprises a hammock-like seating section, wherein your kitty can comfortably lounge about. The design effortlessly merges into your home space, while also serving as a pet-friendly piece of furniture.

This Cat Wheel by HolinDesign is an indoor exercise apparatus for your cat! Featuring a structure that resembles the wheel of a bicycle, your cat can run on the 47.2-inch wooden wheel, ensuring he gets his daily dose of exercise…which cats never do. Although I do believe, they would instead prefer to simply lounge about and take a nap on the wheel!

The CATSSUP Luxury Cat Furniture System is like an indoor playground for your furry friend! Usually, bulky cat trees tend to take up a lot of space in our homes, however, this furniture system doesn’t require any floor space, and can be easily installed within your home. The adjustable C-clamp ensures you can fit it onto any surface, including tables and shelves. It’s like a miniature amusement park for your cats!

The ViviPet Wood Cat Dining Table is a wooden feeding station fitted with two beautiful ceramic bowls, functioning as a personal dining table for your cat. One side of the station features a little tray, wherein you can grow cat grass, or you can also use it to store toys, food, or water. Your pet can now dine in style!

This spaceship-inspired cat bed by CATSA looks super cute and unique! The CATSA Lander Mark1 showcases a precision-milled composite aluminum shell and a plush foam bed. It honestly looks really cool to me, and I wouldnt mind adding this to my home space for my furry friend!

This Macrame Cat Hammock by Maka Art Crafts is exquisitely crafted! Handmade from eco-friendly natural oak and cotton rope, the design is safe, comfortable, and meets your cat’s resting needs. Not to mention the aesthetically pleasing hammock wouldn’t look too bad in your living space.
