We are architects by trade, dog lovers by passion. Originally, we designed this pet bed for the Austin Barkitecture event in 2012. The design came from our own needs, we live in a small central urban home and have a large dog (Leo is our loyal friend, Luna his buddy passed away). We were constantly negotiating space in the house with him - we wanted him to have a comfy large bed that he needed but we also needed to be able to put it away when we had friends or company visiting. This design solved the problem and its design adds warmth to our home.
