If you find that the tired old dog bed doesn’t exactly fit in with your super-sleek minimalist interiors, then IKEA’s new Lurvig collection, designed for your pooch or feline friend, is for you.

Pet owners with a penchant for design will appreciate IKEA’s Lurvig range, which is a mixture of standalone pieces and products that can be incorporated into existing IKEA furniture, to help you save on space. In addition, many items from the collection are collapsible, or can be folded and hidden away when not in use.

Working along side vets, design studio Inma Bermudéz came up with solutions for IKEA that would suit the animals’ needs but also be aesthetically pleasing, as the design studio felt their was a gap in the market for affordable and good-looking pet products.

The 62-piece collection includes mini versions of some of IKEA’s iconic products, including the Klippan sofa for dogs. Plus there are spaces for cats to retreat to, such as a cute tree-house-style hideaways, and clever inserts for existing Kallax shelving units that act as shelters.

Other clever designs include a cat scratch mat that can be rolled up around a table leg to transform it into a scratching tree, a shallow bowl that encourages dogs to eat their food slowly (they’re known for guzzling their food too quickly) and reflective walking gear for walkies during the winter months when it’s darker for longer.

While the range has only just launched in the US, Canada, France and Japan this year, it is also due to be available in the UK in spring 2018.
