In a meticulously appointed apartment, pets pose a daunting design problem: How to distract attention away from plastic cat-litter boxes, wire cages, and tattered dog beds. Chimère, a French company specializing in contemporary pet furniture, takes an altogether different approach, with a collection of high-end, superbly crafted pieces that will make your Design Within Reach sofa look like a thrift-store buy.
Launched last month, the five-piece series, designed by Bloom Room, includes a litter box; a rocking birdcage; a hutch for hamsters, rabbits, and mice; a “sofa” for dogs and cats; and a fish bowl--all crafted from solid oak and finished with rich details such as upholstery and ceramic pulls. Because why shouldn’t Fido and Fluffy enjoy the luxuries their parents didn’t have?
