Sometimes, a cat bed is more than just a cat bed, and this is absolutely the case for the Googie Bed. While this beautifully handcrafted piece of cat furniture most definitely makes an excellent bed and scratcher, as Allegra and Ruby will show you below, it’s also a piece of art.
I don’t know about you, but my house is pretty much Allegra and Ruby’s house – I’m lucky I get to live here. We’re getting close to the point where cat furniture outnumbers my furniture, and I’m good with that. But, given the proliferation of cat pieces in my home, and given that I do like surround myself with beautiful things, it really makes me happy when a piece of cat furniture is also appealing to my sense of aesthetics.
The Googie Bed is beautiful and then some! Inspired by the Googie style of architecture (think 1950s coffee shops with their curvy signs and boomerang patterns on the countertops), this cat bed will make you smile every time you look at it. And in addition to being gorgeous, it’s also extremely well crafted.
The carpeting it’s wrapped in is made from 100% post consumer recycled bottles, and Allegra gives the carpet four paws up: it’s the first thing she tested as soon as the bed came out of the box. The top of the bed and the shelf are padded.
The girls have different ways of enjoying the Googie Bed: Allegra loves to use it as scratcher and as a perch. Ruby likes to use it to try to stalk Allegra from the lower shelf. She hasn’t quite figured out that just because she’s sort of inside the bed, it doesn’t quite make her invisible.
This super fancy bed is one of the most stylish pieces we have in our home, and even though our home decor is not modern, it fits in beautifully.
