The crate is a common sight in a pet owner’s home, but that doesn’t mean it’s a pretty one. With its cage-like metallic structure, the crate sticks out, and not in a good way.

For the design-conscious, there’s the pEi Pod, a bed that provides a dog or cat with a sense of security while adding an element of cute to the room its in.

The pod and a coordinating pillow come in candy colors like pink, mint green and sunny yellow. The “rounded design mimics cavelike sanctuaries that animals gravitate instinctively toward for protection and relaxation,” and the pod’s smooth egg shape looks sweet instead of menacing.

There are the pEi Doggy and pEi Kitty, which come in small and medium sizes, and the pEi Petite for the smallest of furbabies. At $129, they aren’t going to be cheaper than your average crate, but you definitely get what you pay for in aesthetic appeal.
