The Modern Fold-Out Pet Bed By Murphy's Paw Design Is Perfect For Small Spaces (VIDEO)

If you feel the need to shove your dog's unsightly gear out of sight whenever you have company, this new invention is for you. The modern fold-out pet bed by Murphy's Paw Design is a stylish alternative to the lumpy designs found at Pet Smart.

Designed (sort of by accident) by April Clark and Ed Richardson of Clark | Richardson Architects for the annual charity event Barkitecture in Austin, TX, this bed is tucked into a sleek wall-hung console with a zen-like aesthetic. One large panel reveals a cushion big enough for a large dog or a gaggle of small ones while a smaller panel hides cubbies that are just the right size for your four-legged pal's toys and treats. When it's folded up, the unit resembles a slim entertainment unit that would blend into any stylish home.

Currently, the design is available in a dark stained mahogany or white painted wood. Head over to their website for more information and to learn how you can order one of your own.
