We've found that when kids enter the picture, the family pet often benefits from having their own hideaway or refuge. Well, here's a 2-in-1 that wowed us; a pet alcove that's also a planter? That's another space saving way to keep plants off the floor -- and it's frankly way more attractive than the typical dog or cat bed we've seen. It could make a rather sweet smelling litter box too, with the right choice of plants.

It may be rather dear at € 250 but if nothing else it's pretty to look at. We always appreciate when designers think outside the cat box. To see more pictures click here. While you're at it, check out the outdoor birdhouse planter here.
