Great news for Scandi lovers with pets; IKEA has finally come out with a pet range! This is something I have been waiting for so long, so I am quite thrilled about it. Especially now after getting a puppy and seeing how difficult it can be to get hold of minimal and affordable items that will fit with my Scandinavian style home.
With their new pet collection Lurvig, pet loving designers with support from trained veterinarians has designed items that will cater to cats & dogs needs and behavior. The range covers all the bases of our shared life with pets indoors and out, making it easier for us to enjoy our home together with our pets. Some of the items utilize existing IKEA products to transform them into pet-friendly pieces, others are stand-alone new products for our four-legged family members. Who wouldn’t want a cat bed that fits perfectly into a classic Kallax shelving unit or a pet-sized version of a sofa bed that matches your human sized ones?
One of the biggest issues I had when getting my puppy was finding a nice dog bed, searching high and low for the perfect look. I am especially pleased with their new bedframes and pillows, and can’t wait to get my hands on one when the collection comes in store. You can use the frame in two different ways; as a cozy nook with medium-high walls or put it upside down to give your pet a clear view in all directions.
Leashes and collars are provided with reflex, so the dog will show in traffic also when it’s dark. The elasticity of the extendable leash reduces the strain on both the dog’s back and yours.
The slow feed dog bowl stays in place since it has an anti-slip material on the underside, and the elevated part in the middle of the bowl ensures that your dog takes smaller bites reducing the risk of stomach pain.
You can place the cat house on legs, hang it on the wall or slide the house into a KALLAX shelving unit. It can also be used as a practical bedside table where the cat can crawl in so you are always close to your furry friend at night. On the front side there’s a scratching wall where your cat can sharpen their claws.
With this cat scratching mat, you quick and easily transform an ordinary table leg into a scratching tree, where your cat can both sharpen their claws and stretch.
With the cat house you can create a cozy, safe and comfortable sleeping space by putting it either on the floor or slide it into a KALLAX shelving unit.
With the klippan pet bed you can create an even larger sleeping space by folding out the seat cushion. The cover is easy to keep clean since it’s removable and can be machine washed.
“Have you ever felt like your cat or dog wasn’t just a pet, but a member of the family? It’s exactly that focus that led IKEA to make the comprehensive LURVIG pet product range.” – IKEA
