You don’t have to compromise your home’s looks for the comfort of your pets; these custom-built beds cover both concerns! When choosing a bunk for your dog or cat, take all your decor into consideration and choose an accessory that can be tailored to match your furnishings. We found a handful of creative and stylish pet beds that could complement an array of styles from mid-century modern to contemporary minimalism.
