Great interior design isn't just for humans anymore - we all love our pets so why not make their sleeping and living space just as beautiful as ours!
Here is some of our favorite pet furniture that will not only serve the purpose of spoiling your favorite companion, but also add to the design of your home.

This contemporary pet house for cats and small dogs is constructed from furniture-grade walnut and offers an "urban chic" look. A cozy retreat for your furry friend (Eddie's Room).

This sculptural Cat Cocoon from One Form Design is the perfect hide-out for kitties. The construction is layered corrugated cardboard held together with non-toxic glue for safe scratching.

A beautiful chandelier can be a statement piece, enhancing and brightening a room as well as adding glitter and personality to your decor.
These days chandeliers are not restricted to just dining rooms - when hung in kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms or even closets they can dramatically transform a space. You can make a dramatic statement by hanging them in unexpected places or in multiples.
A stunning light fixture will beautify a room - like jewelry for your home a chandelier will add sparkle and personality to any room. A well-known quote in the world of design is: "if a room is like an outfit, then lighting is the jewelry".
A light fixture can be the 'tour de force' of a room: we chose a striking chandelier for added light and drama for this playful living room. MM Design Associates.
A large crystal chandelier in a bathroom is a highly unexpected element that is sure to surprise.

The large crystal light fixture suspended over the bathtub in Kanye West's bathroom gives the space a very glamorous feel.
A glass bubble chandelier is a playful feature over a bath tub.

With a dramatic fixture the decor of the room can be left neutral, as seen in this dining room.

Moura Starr's Hell Bob chandelier is composed of sparkling spheres of crystals freely suspended from the ceiling.

The crystal light fixture above Kanye West's dining area adds a feminine touch  to an otherwise contemporary masculine space.

Swarovski's Light Socks are comprised of mesh bags filled with swarovski crystals and a single halogen bulb. Fabulous when hung at different heights, these fixtures are truly sculptural, an artistic alternative to a conventional chandelier.
