5 Seriously Stylish Dog Houses to Pamper Your Puppers

Gone are the days of thinking of our pets as “just pets.” Our beloved furbabies are now dining on raw food diets, wearing the latest fashion, and enjoying worldwide Insta fame with their own social media accounts. So it’s fitting that we ensure our dogs get the most stylish shelters to relax in while they enjoy their lives of luxury. 

From a zen retreat to a minimalist mansion, your pup is as swaggerific as you are, so doesn’t he deserve his own stylish bachelor pad? Check out the best dog houses to gift to your good boy this winter.

The Minimalist Mansion

We love minimalism. Simple, light-filled spaces that let us relax and connect with nature. Your pup deserves those same relaxing vibes and that’s just what the Deauville House delivers. Featuring an asymmetrical angular roof with a skylight that allows for light and ventilation, the Deauville House is finished in a stylish combo of powder-coated steel and raw wood. This house is sturdy enough to be used outside and small enough to fit inside (without throwing off the minimalist look you worked so hard to put together).

The Rooftop Garden

There’s nothing better than unwinding with a drink and soaking up the sun on a rooftop garden. With its green roof and motion activated drinking fountain, Doggy Dreamhouse lets Fido indulge in said luxuries. Along with being loads of fun, Doggy Dreamhouse is also sustainable. The green roof has its own irrigation and drainage system and inside there is a solar-powered fan ensuring the space stays cool and comfortable even on the hottest days.

The Bow-Wow Bauhaus

High-end design is for the dogs… literally. No more boring square box with a simple roof for our pets. They desire houses as stylish as our own, and MDK9 Dog Haus is just that: an uber stylish shelter for all the good boys (and girls). With materials like Brazilian teak wood, powder-coated steel, concrete, a visually stunning sloped roofline, and a space filled with natural light, this could be the description of a contemporary home for humans. But it’s not. It’s a dog house. Taken to a whole new level.

The Lifeguard Shack

Is there anywhere in the world dogs love more than the beach? Water to swim in, seagulls to chase, frisbees to catch, and warm sand to roll all around in. It’s heaven. You can keep those happy beach vibes going with the Dog Tower 9. Inspired by the South Beach lifeguard towers, Dog Tower 9 is part dog house, part side table, and all style. The cool retro vibe of the tower is enhanced by the hairpin legs and exotic wood veneer. This indoor dog shelter doubles as a side table with space for humans to place a lamp, a few books, or a drink.

The Zen Retreat

Sculptural like origami, yet with a contemporary twist, Oshu House is a shining example of the rising popularity of modern Japanese architecture. The white powder-coated steel structure’s unique shape is punctured by triangular holes, allowing light to slowly filter through in the morning with the rising of the sun, and slowly dim the interior at night. It’s a zen-ful retreat, perfect for the centered dog looking to balance his chi.

Sobro is the Multi-Functional Coffee Table Your Home is Missing
sobro coffee table

Everyone loves a good coffee table. Not only does it serve as a place to prop your feet, throw down your mail and magazines, and, you know, rest your coffee, it also offers a window into the owner's style and aesthetics. A marble-topped table with thin gold legs indicates its owner is more of a minimalist who fancies high-end finishes; a battered wooden table upcycled from vintage barn siding points to an owner that values environmentalism and heritage (and probably enjoys the idea of farming); and then there's the Sobro, a shining, futuristic, and sleek table that serves as a sound system, refrigerator, party hub, storage space, coffee table that wouldn't be amiss in a movie about a tech-loving man living it up in the 22nd century.

And that's because Sobro, the design outfit that created the namesake table, wants you to know that it's on its way to becoming the future of furniture — and the Sobro coffee table is just a taste of that. And what a delicious taste it is.

The world of prefab homes is exploding in recent years, so it's hard to find anything innovative in the field.

That alone is enough to make us want one!

All of the standard prefab amenities are available in their modulOne. It is ready-built, transportable, sustainable, and outfitted with heat, ventilation, air-conditioning, water, and sewage. PassivDom finishes the interior and exterior of each building and their standard model also comes with furniture, appliances, and kitchen utensils. Several buildings can be combined together to create one large home - again, standard in the prefab world. Where PassicDom really shines though, is in the extras.
