Flower Drums Upcycle Into Stylish Cat Houses

The eco-friendly SimplyFido Trendy Cat House gives kitties a private and stylish snuggle spot.

Handcrafted in France out of a reclaimed flower drum, the SimplyFido Trendy Tub Cat House is kitty living at its finest — and greenest. Made with recycled materials, the tub provides for a conveniently lightweight but safely robust home for housecats looking for a little privacy with style.

The creativity factor on this Martin Sellier design is high with the drum being turned on its side and propped up with removable leg stands. The industrial tub even has a printed graphic design cover and, perhaps best of all, the doorway is in the shape of a cat’s sweet face. The result is a modern yet whimsical piece of furniture for felines that gives factory-made flower drums a new, beautiful purpose.

This chic house retails for $170 and comes with a soft cushion insert for kitties to cuddle up on. SimplyFido also offers more vertical simplex and duplex designs that can double as a table or stool. For pet owners who like to keep their cats close by and care about home décor aesthetics, the trendy tub is a great option that will having you smiling every time you see a tail or whiskered face sticking out of its perch.
