Stylish pet beds that will look good in your New York City apartment

Tuft + Paw's cat furniture has a sleek, futuristic look.

While most New York City cats and dogs lack the indoor space of their suburban counterparts, our money says four-legged New Yorkers are probably some of the most spoiled in the country.

This extravagance, of course, includes, their beds (obviously used mostly in the daytime, because, well, spoiled pets sleep in the big bed). But as with everything that takes up space in tight New York City apartments, those pets beds have to look good. Brick Underground went on the hunt for stylish spots for Max and Bella to lounge, and found lots of options, from affordable to statement-making fabulous.

Here are our picks for design-forward pet beds.
