d*s reader augusta was kind enough to give d*s a little heads up on the kattbank- a design that literally made me grab ac and say, “look! look! we need this!”. kattbank is a new furniture piece designed especially for cat owners and the pets they love. this chic, modern bench was created by the portland-based design firm compressed pattern. in a nutshell, kattbank is a sleek modern bench that conceals your cats litterbox under a stylish, yet functional, facade. if you have a cat, you know how tough it can be to hide the litterbox, but make sure the cats still have access to it- the clever thing about the kattbank is that it has a little cut out for cats to walk in, do their business, and walk out. changing is a breeze and the bench even comes in a number of colors and finishes to match your modern decor.
compressed pattern is also raising awareness of modern design solutions for living with cats through a juried design invitational in partnership with the design within reach portland studio and the oregon humane society. the exhibit, cat revolution, will be on display from june 21-22 at dwr to benefit the ohs. kattbank comes in 14 different lacquer finishes and four different wood veneer options for prices ranging from $1750 to $2200. click here for more info [thanks, augusta!]
