Creative Ideas for Interior Living with Your Dog

Screen Shot 2016-06-01 at 10.16.20 AM
UK company Terry's Fabrics has come up with a very creative, unique infographic that features doggie beds, sofas, feeding stations and more that look great, fit into your home, and still make your dog feel comfortable.

According to Terry's Fabrics, "many dog beds and baskets are boring and won't fit with your super-stylish homes. As animal lovers and fans of creative interior design we thought we'd give you some great examples of the more creative ways people have incorporated their dog's furniture into their home."
