CREATING AN 'EXTRA' PET-FRIENDLY HOME
Fur on the couch. Stains on the rug. Scratches everywhere. If this sounds like your place, either you throw some wild parties, or — more likely — you’re a pet owner.
A lot of folks with pets think they can’t have nice furniture, fearing their prized possessions will get ruined. We’re here to tell you that’s just not the case — if you shop smart. Having a furry friend for a roommate doesn’t mean turning your apartment into a zoo. Taking practicality into account, Whom will guide you to our most functional AND stylish pieces so both you and Fluffy can have your cake and eat it, too.
Go sturdy. When it comes to playtime with ole Rascal, we know things can get rowdy. That’s why you want solid furniture that can withstand a few kicks, jumps and bumps during rough-housing. Whom to the rescue. Not only is our custom furniture solidly crafted and wobble-free, it’s non-toxic and clear of hazardous chemicals which can irritate your pet’s sensitive nose. We also recommend minimizing the risk of injury by foregoing glass furniture in favor of wood or metal, and swapping items with sharp corners for rounded shapes. Whom’s oval-shaped Specialist Coffee Table is just one great pet-friendly example. Worried about scratches? Be sure to trim your little critter's nails on the regular.
Go long-term. While certain issues can only be curbed with behavior training (ahem, “soggy” sneakers, anyone?), Whom is here to help with the rest. In addition to making sturdy furniture, we also carry extreme performance fabrics — Classic Linen Weave, Structured Velvet and Velvet Knit. They all come in a variety of colors to accommodate pets and their humans in style. We can’t stop Fuzzy from sleeping on the sofa, but we can offer stain resistance and commercial-grade durability. Pro tip: Invest in a lint roller or high-quality vacuum. (And if worse comes to worst, there is always reupholstering.)
Go extra. Forget the couch — who says pets can’t have a little luxury all their own? Pet bowls and pet beds don’t have to be unsightly. With Whom’s pet line, your little Stinky might just have the swankiest furniture in the house.
In handsome wood and metal frames with luxurious, pillowy cushions, our pet beds are just that bit of “extra” you’ve been looking for. Think of the possibilities: the photos, the snuggliness, the incredible amount of CUTE. We also offer a variety of pet bowls on raised wood and metal platforms that are as practical as they are beautiful. They reduce strain on your pet’s neck while eating or drinking (great for older or sick animals), and are additionally designed to resist tipping over if your pet is accident prone. No more kibble scattered across the floor.
Do it all sustainably. If you’re an animal lover, chances are you care about the planet, too, and buying organic kibble isn’t the only way to help. How many couches wind up in landfills because of pet-related damage? Buying a Whom sofa that’s going to last, and which can be easily cleaned, despite wear and tear from pets, means fewer couches in landfills, which means less stress on resources to replace those couches, which means more clean air for Fido to run and play. Supporting an earth-conscious future comes full-circle.
