The movement of the Humanization of Pets has gained a ton of attention in the last few years and we would like to think that our Bambu Pet Hammock is one of the very first pieces of pet furniture. Our designs are different from the majority of “pet furniture” that is presently available on the market. The majority of are pet size replications of human beds and sofas, or they are just the plain old cushion plopped on the floor adding no interior design value to the customer’s home. I am the designer and founder of Pet Lounge Studios and am a professional furniture designer with a degree from the Savannah College of Art & Design. With that said, I approach all of my designs from the perspective of a furniture designer first and foremost.
Our Kickstarter project is a way for us to create brand awareness and value on an international level. The goal of our project is to bring our products to life by interacting with our backers and inviting them to participate in the entire manufacturing process with regular updates and the creation of an exclusive manufacturing video documentary. This will start by bringing them deep into the bamboo forests of mainland China to harvest the raw bamboo for the production of their products! We will also explain the “green” aspect of bamboo and the story behind our brand. Our hope are that this will go viral on the internet and create the demand for our unique products.

Welcome to the PET LOUNGE STUDIOS Product Development Blog!

PET LOUNGE STUDIOS aim is to provide consumer products that stimulate the imagination and straddle the border between pets and humans. This distinction of what is for us and what is for our pets has been redefined, and may make you a little jealous. Pet Lounge Studios is a green, eco-friendly manufacturer of Modern Luxury Pet Furniture & Accessories.

The purpose behind the PET LOUNGE STUDIOS blog is to educate the consumer on the design and development processes involved in bringing our products to the market. We want to give our readers a chance to voice their thoughts and opinions while contributing to the unlimited possibilities of going green with pet furniture.

We will post images of conceptual sketches, prototypes, images and videos of our overseas factories, the manufacturing process starting with the harvesting of the raw bamboo from deep within the forests and all the way through to the packaging. I promise you, it will be a very exciting journey!

Manufacturing Process

In March 2008 we arranged a trip to the Bamboo capital of the World, China. We traveled out to the countryside with a former contact, and friend, I had met on one of my previous trips and began working on the manufacturing of the BAMBU COLLECTION. It was a very exciting and successful trip. Below is a slideshow which documents our trip and the production of our products. Hope you enjoy!
