WOWBOW’s ‘Mija’ (Mee-Haa) line of unique pet furniture arrived through a familiar scenario; where upon its creator searched high and low for a particular product, only to be disappointed time and time again. UK pet stores seemed overwhelmed with soft and squidgy bed products, covered in tartans and paw prints. High-end Knightsbridge department stores do a wonderful selection of exquisite pet products, undeniably beautiful and if that is indeed your taste and your budget, you’re set! As for Kim and Richard Bull, both trained designers, they were looking for something that was not only functional but would be an aesthetic asset to their home.
To this end a bed was eventually sourced and shipped from NYC via California, however, it lacked structure and was soon looking less than timeless. So Kim was determined to design a bed herself and in February of this year began researching the foundations for what would become the ‘Mija’ range and, in turn, set the mould for the matching ‘Dining Table’. Originally the plan was to design and commission just the one bed for the one dog, but as time went by the picture widened and the kernel for a brand emerged.
Several months and an equal number of prototypes later, the ‘Mija’ bed is in production, handmade in the UK, from 10mm thick Perspex™, with faux suede cushions and a wealth of innovations which will make living with the beds a joyful experience for both dog and home owner.
