About this project
Hello Kickstarter fans!! Thanks for taking the time to stop by to check out our project! I'd like to introduce myself, my name is Corey Drew and I’m the lead designer and founder of Pet Lounge Studios. My team and I thought what a better way to launch and gauge the demand for our Bambu Hammock then creating a Kickstarter Project and offering much more than a product, but by telling the story behind the Hammock and sharing the entire manufacturing process with you!!
Our Design Philosophy:
Approach every product as a Furniture Design
PET LOUNGE STUDIOS is an eco-friendly manufacturer of Modern Luxury Pet Furniture & Accessories. Our goal is to design unique products specifically for the Humanization of pets within our families. Our Signature Bambú Collection embraces the meaning of Humanization in its entirety. Each product is designed and crafted paying close attention to every last detail. The Collection is a seamless blend of form and function, neither sacrificing one for the other.
Use Sustainable, Earth Friendly Raw Materials For Manufacturing
This signed limited edition Bambu Pet Hammock is made with exotic strand bamboo material, which has the tendency to look like a cross between teak and rich mahogany. The cushion is stretched out on all four corners and secured with stainless steel anchors and carabineers creating a sling type sleeping surface. This will also help relieve many of the pressure points often associated with arthritis in pets. The cushion is washable, reversible and made with upholstery grade ultra-suede. The supporting canvas has minimal stretch and is designed for pets under 25lbs.
Modern Luxury Furniture:
Sleek, Modern, Scandinavian Inspired Furniture Design
The Bambu Pet Hammock and the Bambu Pet Diner are actual pieces of furniture. Their combination of sharp lines, sleek design and rich eco-friendly materials have made it my most popular design yet. It is a seamless blend of form and function creating both comfort and style. Dogs and cats love the Hammock because its sleeping surface responds to their body weight making it much more supportive and comfortable than an overstuffed cushion. It will also complement the best of interiors and you won’t feel the need to hide it when friends or family pay a visit. It is a piece of furniture, designed and built to last for years.
To complement the Hammock I’ve also designed the elevated Bambu Pet Diner in the exotic bamboo strand material. This diner includes (2) of 1 quart high-grade stainless steel bowls and a water resistant finish. Both of these products are developed and ready to go into full production with your support!
