Sofa + Dog House = Dog House Sofa from “m.pup”

As a dog owner, I have a dilemma. I can let the dogs on the sofa, or I can ban them to a dog bed on the floor. I like having my canine companions next to me on the couch. Their presence next to me is relaxing, and comforting. The dilemma is this, I like the dogs on the couch, but I don’t like the hair and dirt they leave behind. My solution so far has been to cover the couch with a sheet to protect it, and take the sheet off when guests come over.

So, what happens when you combine a sofa and a dog house? You get the Dog House Sofa by Korean designer Seungji Mun. This wooden and upholstered sofa features a small cubby to the side with a padded dog bed under the arm. The cubby is large enough for two small dogs or maybe one medium sized dog. Simple modern design with natural materials combine with a modern aesthetic to create something new and fun. OK, I’d still have to cover this with a sheet for obvious reasons, but I love the idea, and I’d love to replace the sofa in the TV room with one.

The Dog House Sofa is a brand-new product in the 1st collection of the emotional pet furniture brand ”m.pup.”

“As numbers of nuclear families are increasing, pets coexisting with people are establishing themselves as companions of people. Currently in South Korea, people are raising over ten million pets.

This sofa is composed of the solid wood(ash wood) and a fabric. And combining the sofa and dog house deliver the new space of communication between human and pet.”
