I know before you all say ‘but you don’t have a dog’ there is logic behind my madness. I know it is true I don’t own a dog but I do know many friends that do and I am exceedingly passionate about good design. That’s were Kind for Dogs comes in, this new Finnish Lifestyle Brand offer the best of both worlds, whether your family has a dog or not. The simple Nordic style is prevalent in their designs all in a muted colour palette of linens, leather and ceramics not a naff gawdy dog print in sight.
Maarit the founder of Kind describes the ethos and values behind this very unique lifestyle brand perfectly below;
“Any dog lover will know that dogs are an important part of the family. However, we’ve noticed that when it comes to interior décor, man’s best friend is often forgotten. This thinking gave birth to an idea of new Finnish lifestyle brand for dog owners and dogs.
Today at Kind, we aim to bring sustainable Nordic style to your home, always with your pet’s comfort in mind. Our collection consists of functional yet stylish dog accessories and home decor. Our product design is clean and Nordic, so that any style-conscious dog owner can enjoy it.
From the start, it was important that Kind’s products should stand the test of time, and not become scruffy in use. This principle still guides every decision in the design process. Our collection combines the needs of your dog with clean Nordic design. Our harmonious colour palette is inspired by nature, making our dog beds so beautiful that they will fit right in with your interior décor. No more hiding your dog’s things in the laundry room.
At Kind, we aim to make products that are functional and simplistically beautiful. Dogs remind us of how important it is to stay in touch with nature, so we use many high-quality natural materials, like linen, cotton, and vegetable tanned leather.
This high quality design lead store is a joy, set out in clear categories , At Home, Going Out and For the Owner. Each one with specific items for that exact purpose. Practical dog beds that blend seamlessly into your interior and the most beautiful ceramic dog bowls that if you weren’t using for your dog’s meals wouldn’t look out of place on your own table. Handmade leather dog collars and leads that age beautifully with time and wear. Then finally there is their home wares category, yes you can use the linen waffle towels for cleaning your dog after long walk but they work equally well as useful towels in your home. Also minimalist linen pillow covers bringing the whole clean lined Nordic style together, creating a stylish interior for your home whether you own a dog or not.
Kind for dogs generously sent me some of their linen products to try in my own home and they work very well indeed, of course how could I not like linen waffle towels and linen pillow covers. They are an essential part of my home interiors and work seamlessly with my decor.
So I urge you to go and take a look, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed, I was thinking maybe a Christmas gift for the dog lover in your family, if you make a purchase you can receive a 10% discount with your order using the code KIND16.
