Glasscape by Aruliden

With Glasscape, New York product design consultancy Aruliden transforms the traditional fishbowl into an attractive abode for piscine pets. This handsome hand-blown glass piece features a mountain-like form that provides a unique focal point. For those who are more inclined to grow a capsule garden than live the life aquatic, the bowl also serves as an equally alluring vessel for a terrarium.

Pousse Creative's Pet Houses

Designers Sebastian Haquet and Thomas Lanthier have a decidedly modern take on shelters for pets. Their Lille-based company, Pousse Creative, was founded in 2010 with a chicken run designed for suburban environments and quickly grew to encompass a complete line of modern dwellings for rabbits, cats, dogs, and birds. These modern, eco-friendly abodes are weatherproof and rugged enough for outdoors, but stylish enough for your living room. Plus they do double duty in providing a cozy napping spot that's a very short jaunt for your furry friend to nibble on some herbs. What better way is there to merge nature, animals, and functionality into our urban lifestyles?

Pup Tent!

Last year, the AIA Small Project Award went to what is most likely the smallest house ever to win the award: the Pup Tent by the New York-based firm Slade Architecture. Made from a single four-by-eight foot sheet of water-jet cut plywood, the conical 'pup tent' is, according to Hayes Slade, "a modern, indoor dog lounge." As for its origin, Slade explains: "This piece was an exploration in materials designed and fabricated for the Design Trust for Public Spaces Annual Auction. The auction project requirement was to create a 'nest'—something that could support residence for a creature and would fit in a taxi." Here's a closer look at the coolest dog bed we've seen in a while.
