Grand feline designs

Welcome to the world of “petchitecture", a growing interior design trend dedicated to creating beautiful, practical living spaces for our feline friends.

Whether it's a minimalist climbing wall or a Scandinavian-style playhouse, design studios are considering the needs of four-legged residents, creating accessories and furniture for the discerning feline. Even architects are getting in on the action, building special features into builds to cater for the cats of the family. Here are a few of our favourites.

This piece echoes a mid-century Scandi sideboard but is in fact, a playhouse for cats. Definitely beats those grotty carpet-covered monstrosities!

These chic cat pillars clip onto existing bookcases or shelving so you don’t have to commit to actually nailing something into the wall. Perfect for rentals or to change up a space.

Cats were definitely on the forefront when this house in Japan was designed, complete with their very own climbing wall.

No need to stash this away when you have friends over! It may look like a sculpture but is in fact, a sleekly designed cat playground called the Neko cat tree.

Away with clunky and hello to contemporary with Dote's modern wall climbers for the discerning feline.
