It seems there are a plethora of cat/book/bookcase images online, but doggy reading buddies are frequently left out. Never fear, here are some bookcases made to please four-footed friends and their less furry family members. In honor of National Dog Day, let’s create a special space for books and dogs.
Let’s start off with this fun series of bookshelves designed by NEL, “a collective of designers who join forces to explore, through concept and form, the interaction in design between traditional materials and techniques, and new processes or unusual applications.”
The pieces are made out of different materials using a variety of techniques.
Japanese designer Sakura Adachi, created the Pet Cave bookcase to provide space for books, as well as a private nook for pets. It even comes with a comfy cushion!
Can’t leave Snoopy out of any doggy décor option. This custom bookcase by Feebi’s Woodworking was based on a drawing by an expectant mother who was doing the child’s room in a Snoopy theme. It mimics the famous Charles Shultz doghouse.
Several designers have incorporated dog crates into larger bookcases, which might be a great option for book collectors with big dogs.
If you decide to go with this option, remember to account for the growth of your puppy.
