Alfie is the master at lounging on the sofa… Wet or dry the sofa gets it. This is why I try to have as many throws to hand to try and prevent any lasting damage. But finding good quality, stylish throws can be tricky. Thanks to The Lounging Hound these problems are a thing of the past.
I first discovered The Lounging Hound on Twitter, after spotting their gorgeous products on the weekly social networking hour #WoofWoofWednesday… For me it was love at first sight!
I fell in love with their luxurious Pure Merino Lambswool Throws in minutes, they have a whole range of colours you really are spoilt for choice. I chose the gorgeous Springtime, with it’s subtly verdant shades set against the cream, I just knew it would look perfect in our home. Adding a couple of throws about your home is a great idea, not only do they protect your sofas from mucky paw prints they add a bit of character and warmth to the room.
The Lounging Hound sources their wool from the Abraham Moon Mill in Yorkshire, one of the oldest and most traditional mills in the UK. The wool will keep you warm in the winter but doesn’t overheat you in the warmer months… They are also hypoallergenic and stain and odour resistant – Perfect for using with the pooches!
Do you know what’s better? They don’t just create gorgeous throws! They have a whole range of products to bring a bit of colour into your home. I wanted to give you a feel for the company, I asked owner Natalie a few questions:
What was the story behind “The Lounging Hound”?
“The Lounging Hound is a family business that was set up in order to provide practical products for dogs that also look lovely in your home.
We wanted to design a range of products that both dogs and their owners could love!”
Where do you get your inspiration for each product?
“My mother has two retired greyhounds called Kate and Swift who crave comfort and love lounging. Our Sofa Toppers were designed with them in mind as they are always on the sofas as soon as your back is turned. Greyhounds love to lie on their backs with their legs in the air and they were forever pushing the Throws from the sofa to the floor. Not anymore!”
Alfie just loves a snooze on the sofa, do you have your own Lounging Hound?
“Almost! We are due to get a Wheaten Terrier puppy called Stanley in 2 weeks time. So look out for some very cute Lounging Puppy Instagram posts!”
What is your favourite product?
“My favourite product has to be our Sofa Toppers. They just tick all the boxes – protective, stylish and comfortable. What more could you ask for!”
This year we met you at The Game Fair, where are you off to next?
“We have just finished our last Dog Show of the year – the Chiswick House Dog Show – which was fantastic and so many different types of dog! We will be at some Christmas Markets in November and December, so look out for details on our website coming soon.”
