This post is pawwered by P.L.A.Y., who want to tell dog parents that you can get total comfort, great design and style all in one beautiful, well-made dog bed.

If you’re a dog parent, you know what it’s like trying to make your home look amazing while having to deal with the many accessories that come with having a dog. Between toys, leashes, and dog beds, it’s definitely not easy! For most things, a basket can hide away clutter whenever a guest drops by, but dog beds are harder to conceal.

Thankfully, dog beds are increasingly becoming easier to incorporate into your home’s decor while giving your dog the gift of total comfort.

P.L.A.Y. beds are designed with the new generation of style-savvy dog parent in mind. Their beds are made with eco-friendly PlanetFill® high-loft stuffing made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, and carefully selected fabrics sewn with excellent craftsmanship to ensure durability. To show you how versatile these beds can be, we found two dog parents with distinctive style and added P.L.A.Y. to their decor.

Stacie Grissom
Home Decor Style: Boho-chic

As Editor-in-Chief of BarkPost, Stacie is a free spirit with a penchant for patterns and a love for furniture she’s reclaimed from the streets of New York.

Her home is the epitome of shabby-chic meets old-timey beauty, while still remaining functional. She styled her dog Pimm’s P.L.A.Y bed with the intention to let Pimm be where she really wants to be: smack dab in the middle of all the action.


“My dog Pimm is a feisty one and loves bouncing around the house. Since she gets bored easily, I like to switch around where I place her bed in the living room. This way she gets to lounge in different spaces while I’m working on my DIY projects.”


“P.L.A.Y. offers couch pillows that match the dog’s bed and I used the pillows as an accent to tie in the dog bed with the rest of the living room. Pimm has two favorite spots in the house: on the chest by the windows because she loves basking in the sun, and right by my feet so she can be as close to me as possible while still enjoying her own space.”

Tasmai Uppin
Home Decor Style: Industrial-chic

Tasmai is the Life & Pinterest editor at BarkPost. She spends most of her free time scouting rustic pieces that are both functional and adhere to her industrial, functional sense of style. Her home blends Ikea-esque items with custom-made pieces.

benji and tazz love

“Benji is a homebody through and through. He loves consistency and enjoys a good routine. In my small apartment he has beds in three different places, and they are never moved from their spots. One in the kitchen, one right by the couch and one right by my bed.”


“He loves his P.L.A.Y. beds. Ever since I got them he doesn’t try to get up on the couch or my bed which is awesome because now the furniture stays relatively fur-free. He doesn’t really smell too bad because I’m always wiping him down with doggie wipes (and he’s even got his own doggie cologne!), but it’s nice to know that his bed covers and inserts are completely machine washable and dryable, so I don’t have to worry about having stinky dog beds in the house. I got the Kalahari Giraffe/Brown print pillows to match his bed, and they really help pull the room together.”


“Aesthetics are extremely important to me and the one thing I dislike is having to sacrifice style for functionality. A person’s personality is reflected in their style and P.L.A.Y. beds nail that concept perfectly! They’ve got patterns, designs, and pieces to capture the imagination of every kind of dog parent.”

P.L.A.Y.’s dog bed styles range from traditional Moroccan-style prints to quirky mustache prints. You can purchase their beautiful covers separately, so you can change your dog’s bed to match your home as it evolves. They even carry matching pillows so you AND your pup can relax in style!

In addition to making products that make your pup feel good, P.L.A.Y.’s committed to sharing the ruv with shelter animals who don’t have a comfy place to lay their heads. They’ve been partnered with the Petfinder Foundation since 2012 for their Warm Bellies Initiative, through which one shelter mat is donated to a pup in need for every P.L.A.Y. dog bed sold online! Since the inception of the program, P.L.A.Y. customers have helped donate over 1,300 Chill Pads and lent a paw to over 100 shelters across the USA.
