Introducing the Eco-chic Bambu Lounger from Pet Lounge Studios

Mon, Feb 2, 2009

Beds & Loungers, Green Design

I would like to introduce a relatively new company, Pet Lounge Studios, manufacturer of eco-friendly modern luxury pet furniture and accessories. I’m very impressed with their true commitment to reducing the company’s impact on the environment. All of their products are handmade using solid bamboo, the fastest growing plant known to man and one of the strongest building materials. You can read all about the eco-materials used in their products here.

One of Pet Lounge Studio’s new products is their Bambu Lounger. Solid bamboo makes the frame extremely sturdy but also lightweight. The simple but elegant form has a unique mattress support system, reminiscent of Scandinavian furniture. A cushion made from the highest quality memory foam helps to relieve pressure points, which can be a huge benefit for older or arthritic cats. The microsuede cushion cover is made with no harmful solvents in the dying process and has a water-resistant inner lining to keep the foam from becoming soiled.

Here’s something I absolutely love: they have a product development blog where you can read all about the development process behind their products and watch a slide show of a recent trip to China (the bamboo capital of the world) where the owners of Pet Lounge Studios personally inspected the materials and manufacturing process to make sure it met their quality and eco-friendly standards. Here are a few of my favorite pix from the slide show.

    Where were you all my life?!?! This is a wonderful site!!! I love that lounger. Sadly, my kitty likes to sleep on plastic and plastic only.

    I like this idea. I am always looking for something different & eco frndly…but what I DONT LIKE about it is that it is made in another country. How eco frndly is that when it’s transported so far. If Bambo grows so fast why can’t we farm it & make it here. I would pay a little more money if it was 100% usa made.

    Does it come in people sizes? LOVE IT.

    Thank you all for your comments! I have had the same request many times to design the Lounger in people sizes. We have many more designs that we will be launching in the near future that are not on our website so please sign up for our newsletter to stay informed.

    PRC, the land of tainted cat food. Remember? But these beds are beautiful! and yes, people size would be good, too, for me AND my cats.

    This would be great for my senior cat as he has trouble getting up on the bed even with the stairs we installed for him. Love the bed not the price. Don’t any American companies make things for pets within reason? Thats a weeks pay.

    I could just see al livingroom with people and cat beds in it made of this! Would be really nice. Four kitty beds and a couch and loveseat!
    Very eco-friendly.

    We would just like to address “Stumbling Over Chaos’s” comment regarding IKEA. Our Lounger is made using solid bamboo and not pine. Pine is not an eco-friendly material and costs a fraction of what Bamboo costs. Secondly, we use a shredded orthopedic memory foam mattress and not a thin layer of Dacron which is a very inexpensive material that provides NO orthopedic support. Our mattress also use the highest grade ultra suede cover, which is removable. Also, our cushions will last much longer than IKEA’S. Our products are unique and not designed to mimic human furniture like the IKEA bed that you are referring too. The Bambu Lounger makes a statement and becomes a conversational piece, as well as adding to the decor of our customers homes.

    I think it’s an awesome design and would love to have one! My crew would be fighting out who got to sleep on it first.

    In response to the comment on “land of the tainted cat food” there are many wonderful people in China who are shamed by such horrible things – and many times they are also affected by the end results of shabby products.

    It would be great to be able to buy American made products – but it’s very hard to compete with the other countries.

    I absolutely do not see the comparrison between this beautiful piece of craftsmanship and the Ikea item. I love, love, love this lounger and would purchase one immediately if finances permitted. My Magnolia would love to spend her days reclining on one of these.

  16. 16

    What a great sleek concept. I love the idea of the memory foam cushion. Great eco-conscious and attractive design.

  17. 17

    That is classy!

    Im so glad you are having this as the giveaway! I havent stopped thinking about it since you posted it, my cats and I would LOVE this so much! They need a great bed and this is a great bed for them. I had an idea too, if they make them a little taller and stackable.. for mutli cat owners, how great would that be.. Kitty Bunk beds!

    I LOVE this!!! My cat Patches is always sleeping on my bed but sometimes she goes on my mom’s bed and my mom doesn’t like that very much but how perfect would it be to have her own stylish comfy bed!!!

  20. 20

    the memory foam would definite attract my cat and he’d likely actually sleep on it whereas right now, he prefers his beds that are high up as opposed to the ones we put on the floor. it’d be cute to have this little bed next to the two big dogs’ big beds on the floor – the three of them could sleep together if we had one of these :)

  21. 21

    That’s a pretty classy bed – eco-friendly makes it even better.

    This is great! Do they make these in people sizes too? lol My two older kitties (14 and 16 yrs old) would love it! It would really help with sore backs and hips!

  23. 23

    This may be the best give away yet!

  24. 24

    This looks awesome!!! I can see my cat being all majestic with it situated on my giant desk surface, regally glancing out the window ;)

  25. 25

    So sleek! I love it.

  26. 26

    We’d love to have one… Our cat furniture is getting PURRty shabby and it’s about time we had something new! Thanks for the giveaway!

    OK I can see a cat fight in my house they would all try to get on it at the same time!

    I love the simplicity and idea behind this product


  1. [...] Hmm – is it just my imagination, or does this IKEA hack of turning a doll bed into a cat bed (about $30) result in something very similar to this $300 pet lounger? [...]
