Bed
Vintage pieces don't have to be the reserve of those of us with two legs. Furry friends of the retro persuasion will no doubt love napping stylishly on one of these Upcycled Vintage Suitcase Pet Beds from Atomic Attic.

Modernist-style FishCondo fish tank

FishCondo

While you may not be able to afford a modernist apartment for yourself, this FishCondo is surely the next best thing: a Le Corbusier style development for your fish. 

A world away from the faux bridges and treasure chests usually associated with fish tanks, this design is all gleaming white and straight lines. What's more, the Condos are stackable so you can buy a few and build your own fishy development, worthy of a Ville Contemporaine. 

Each FishCondo costs £40.

Bosa Travel Doghouse - shaped like a vintage suitcase

Doghouse

Remember the retro Pet Caravan? Well, the same designer is back with more doggy design - the Bosa Travel Doghouse.

That designer is Marco Morosini and the new design is based on a vintage suitcase, the idea being that you can carry the 'house' around with you. Although I suspect a ceramic suitcase with platinum detailing holding a small dog would take some carrying.

Indeed, this is only suitable for a small dog, being sized at 54 x 40 x 28cm. And for seriously loaded small dog owners, with a price tag of 670 Euros.

BiOrb Life space age aquarium

Biorb

A very new design with a distinctly late 60s look - the BiOrb Life aquarium.

Yes, if they kept fish in Space 1999, it would have been in something like this, with a coloured acrylic finish and clear front, along with a circular port at the top that offers access to the actual fish and water. Clever stuff too - an easy-to-change filter system makes fish keeping a doddle, while an LED lighting system changes to create sunrise, sunlight, sunset and moonlight.

Three sizes available (30, 45 and 60 litre), with prices starting at around £190 when it launches in the next few weeks.

Eddie's Room - Merrow Associates-style house for your dog

Eddiesmain

Regular readers will know of our love for all things Merrow Associates, the high-end British design company of the late 60s/early 70s. It might be long gone, but there's plenty of furniture out there in the Merrow style - including Eddie's Room.

Eddie's Room is an indoor dog house, a really stylish mix of walnut and chrome, with a hole for your furry friend to get in and out, as well as a grey mattress to keep him or her warm.

Dog houses don't get much more stylish - although it will cost you $599 (around £300) for some canine cool.
