Our Story

Zarah with Catsby, 2021.

This project came about during the height of the coronavirus-related lockdowns, when I was spending an increasing amount of time at home. As I began paying more and more attention to how I could optimize my living space for both the human and feline residents in our apartment, I realized that the sort of cat furniture I wanted wasn’t out there. 

I wanted functional cat furnishings that were also beautiful, sculptural and could serve as decor. Minimal colors. Simple shapes. Tapping in to my in-house team of cat experts for professional advice and rigorous testing (credit my kids, Catsby and Feline Dion), I began putting together a small collection of cat furniture that would speak to other like-minded cat parents. Fast forward to 2021 and the inaugural range is an offering of design-centered pieces that unite form and function, aesthetic furniture that both you and your feline will love.

As we collectively start to prioritize slower, gentler ways of living, I hope that our creations will spark conversations, inspire a space you love and most importantly, promote happiness for you and your furrends.
