So let me start by saying that this post is going to be about an upholstered wingback bed, but the story itself starts with my little dog, Maximuus, who thinks that his name indicates his size. His five pound frame is shown here in all of his delightful glory:
Yes, it is true, I am slightly obsessed with my little dog. I can’t help it. But because he is so little and I’m such a neurotic dog-mom, we are getting a new bed in our Master Suite. What do the two have to do with each other, you ask? Well maybe you didn’t actually ask but I’m going to tell you if you keep reading. Max sleeps on the bed with us at night and sometimes he gets restless (or has to go potty) and jumps down off of the bed in the middle of the night. Mind you, he is ONLY five pounds AND he just turned 10 years old this month, so his little joints and limbs should not be taking that type of abuse. You can imagine that I am 5 feet 5 inches tall and have to reach UP to get into our bed so this little dog has to LAUNCH himself off.
The solution? A lower bed. Enter my upholstered, wingback dream:
I found it on Joss & Main, which if you aren’t familiar with the site, is a great place for all things home and offers exclusive access to highly discounted items to it’s members. You should check it out.
Here are more details on my bed directly from the website:
Richly decadent, the Tufted Wingback Bed in Linen Chocolate promises the utmost in relaxation, rejuvenation and pure classic style. Wrapped in a wonderfully soft chocolate fabric, this eye-catching presentation of clean, timeless design features deep button tufting, plush foam padding and a gently curving wingback design, evoking the rich glamour of Hollywood Regency. Center your room and indulge yourself with this bed’s endlessly enduring appeal, and transform your bedroom into a truly fashionable retreat.
I’m SO excited! Not only is it gorgeous, but the mattress sits about 3 inches lower, and we will get some benches (or a long, single bench) to put at the foot of the bed. And since Max is still a pretty quick learner, I’m not worried that he won’t learn how to “step” off of the bed in a more dignified manner suited for a pooch his size.
What do you think? The new bed sure is much more fun that getting dog steps like these, don’t you think?
