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


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.

eBay watch: Dog parka with target - and all proceeds go to help homeless dogs


Thanks to Karen for sending in this mod-themed dog parka with target, for sale on eBay with all the profits going to a local RSPCA homeless dog shelter (Leicester).

It's sized as 12 inches long (other sizes are available), has a warm nylon shell lining, a fur hood lining (not real obviously) and a target design on the back.

The coat is being modelled by one of the residents of the dog home - and as such, one of the dogs likely to benefit from a purchase. It's on a Buy It Now for £15.99.

Raumhochrosen offers modernist houses for birds


Never mind some bread and nuts, if you really want to treat the birds in your garden, get them the ultimate in stylish living - scaled replicas of great architectural homes for birds.

That's what German design company Raumhochrosen is now offering. There's a range of homes available, most notably some modernist-styled housing from the 1960s like Gunter Wratzfeld's House Watzenegg in Dornbirn (1963) and Rudolf Wäger's Dice House in Götzis (1965), along with more contemporary (but equally cool) designs like the Futterhaus SU-SI (1998) and the Futterhaus Haus R. (1999).

All are wooden replicas to a 1:33 scale and all are for sale online, with prices starting at 149 Euros, plus an additional 49 Euros for the stand.

Retro caravan for your dog


Does your dog need luxury transport for its next holiday? The retro Nomad caravan could be for you.

Yes, that's right, a dog caravan - with wheels, a lockable door, interior carpeting and co-ordinating wallpaper. It's the work of Italian designer Marco Morosini, with just 10 available, each numbered and signed by the designer.

And if you want one for your pampered pooch, you'll have to pay $5,000 (£2,500) for the privilege.

Architectura - modernist house for your dog

Modernist_dog You might not be able to afford a modernist home, but you can afford to buy one for your dog with the Architectura.

And it's a pretty cool place for your four-legged friend to hang out. Inspired by the work of Frank Lloyd Wright, it has slatted walls on two sides for ventilation and room to relax both indoors and outdoors on the roof, both fitted with carpet. Alternatively, there's a larger version finished for the outdoors.

Available in a choice of natural and orange finishes, prices start at $349 (around £175). Oh yes - and cats can use it too.
