The Best Pet-Friendly Furniture

When Shopping for Pet-Proof Furniture, Keep These Tips in Mind:   01 High-gloss finishes, powder-coated metals, and materials that wear well outside are also resistant to claw and teeth marks--and these days, well designed  can often toggle between indoors and out.

  06 Accidents happen, so do yourself a favor and be prepared. Instead of a dry-clean-only duvet, go for something that's machine washable, and keep plenty of interchangeable throws on hand.
