Modern, Eco-Friendly Pet Beds for Fall/Winter 2011
Bumper Beds by West Paw Design are the eco-chic donut beds that dogs and cats love as much as their style-conscious companions. West Paw Design has added the modern Links and Cobblestone patterns and a solid Slate color to its Bumper Bed collection which now includes 77 different mix and match options. With interchangeable inner pillows and outer bolsters, pet lovers can choose matching pieces or they can mix it up with unique colors and pattern combinations.
The cotton beds are handcrafted in the USA and meet a high standard of durability and comfort giving dogs and cats an ultra cozy place to rest night after night. Pets can stretch out in pure comfort across the bed’s center pillow and curl up against the round bolster which also serves as a supportive headrest.
Bumper Beds are filled with recycled IntelliLoft® — a material created from reclaimed plastic soda bottles that have been turned into a soft and durable fill. Each Bumper Bed uses up to 108 plastic bottles, and to date West Paw Design has helped to divert more than 5.4 million bottles from landfills by using IntelliLoft in its pet beds and plush dog toys.
The entire Bumper Bed is machine washable and features removable zip covers on the pillow and the bolster for easy maintenance.
The new Links, Cobblestone and Slate beds are available in five sizes ranging from XS to XL at pet speciality stores across North America and online at WestPawDesign.com. MSRP $69.00 - $169.00. Handcrafted in the USA.
