IKEA have launched a new range of furniture designed specifically for our pets, and we absolutely love it!

The range includes a bowl designed to encourage dogs to eat slower, and a cat hideaway resembling a treehouse. As well as your standard pet products, the Lurvig collection will also have scaled-down versions of iconic IKEA furniture such as the Kipplan sofa.

The new range of furniture has been carefully thought out, designer Inma Bermudéz felt there was a gap in the market for fashionable yet affordable pet products.

Inma worked with Barbara Schäfer, a vet, to ensure that different pet behaviours and habits were taken into consideration with designing and producing the furniture.

Bermudéz’s collection, which has 62 pieces, covers the essentials of walk, travel, play, eat and sleep.

For dinner time, is a bowl that’s shallow and designed to encourage dogs to eat slower – we all know how greedy they can be!

Speaking about her designs she said “Cats are generally good at regulating how much food they eat, however a number of dog breeds still retain the desire to overeat.”

She went on to explain “That’s how the slow feed bowl became part of the Lurvig range. By using a design that breaks up a bowl’s internal surface area, it prevents the dog from being able to inhale their food in one or two gulps.”

For sleeping, a “friendly-smelling cushion” has been introduced. It’s made to be filled with the owners old clothes or blankets to give your pets comforting, familiar smells while they snooze!
