NEKO: A See-Through Modern Cat Tree by RINN

Let’s face it, pets aren’t just pets. They’re a part of the family and because of that, they deserve all the comforts we do. You may have noticed that more and more designers are cleverly finding ways to incorporate furniture for our furry friends – the kind we’re not embarrassed to live with as soon as guests enter the front door. Cat furniture especially has been on the rise and the latest comes from RINN, the same Japanese brand that brought us their minimalist, automatic cat feeder, Petly. This time, they’re launching NEKO, a modern cat tree that gives your feline several spots to nap and a pillar to scratch.

The mostly wooden (from forests in the Hida region of Japan) cat tree features a marble base that holds a hemp cord covered pillar with three elevated levels for rest and relaxation. Each level is partially covered in Kvadrat fabric for additional kitty coziness.

Who would have thought that something so elegant would be designed for a cat? Gone are the days of those carpet-covered monstrosities, which can now be replaced with the wood and marble NEKO that will have your guests inquiring immediately.
