The Latest Style In Cat Beds: Repurposed Mid-Modern TV Sets

Like most people, you’ve probably found yourself spending a little more time at home this year. Maybe it’s given you time to catch up your your favorite shows or try out a few new ones, maybe it’s given you time to rearrange your TV room with a greater sense of feng shui, or maybe it’s prompted you to completely dismantle a console set and repurpose it as a home for your furry friend.

It’s that last category that we’ll be exploring here.

Cat owners are channeling a stylish new trend in pet comfort by transforming disused mid-century modern TV sets as cat beds, Crafty reports. These creations are cute, comfortable, and free of commercial interruption.

The Naturalist

A few plants really bring this design together with the botanically-themed paper glued to the back of the TV set. This may have been one of the more discrete models back in the 50s. Today, it’s a comfy cavern any cool cat can enjoy.

The Station Break

There’s no reason to think “there is nothing good on TV” when all you can see is a happy cat. For those who attempt this on their own, make sure you’ve removed all the dangerous electronic components and sharp glass, place a soft cushion at the bottom of the set and move it to a comfy corner of the room.

If you’ve done everything right, your cat will be moving in in no time!

The Rerun

This model can be shipped to your door and set up in seconds. Etsy seller QubiPetBeds has them for around $65. They are just as easily folded up into a cube as they are broken down and stored in a special tote bag. That’s right, you can bring this cat bed on the road with you!
