I love Sou Fujimoto's little doggie abode, not to mention that boston terrier chilling inside.

I also fully approve of that chihuahua's little orange bubble.

Being an animal rescuer and having a variety of (small) dogs in varying numbers, I can tell you now, none of this stuff is going to work with the average active dog. Well, the fleece pillow, but that would be in shreds in a week. Get practical -- and washable! Geez.

I love all the photos, especially Sou Fujimoto's, and Torafu's hammock, but I agree that they are not practical for the dogs I know and love.

I just like the dual functionality of the wood bench / chair by Architect: Atelier Bow-Wow .

My dog loves cushy fluffy beds so he voted for Kazuyo Sejima. I like the Torafu hammock. I made my dog a PVC pipe hammock & sewed a heavy canvas Cover to match cushion on our outdoor swing. he loves it, but I will now builds a wood frame- more pleasing aesthetically. I don't think the t-shirt would be very supportive though since it sags & would keep stretching.

The dogs are so adorable and as much as I love all the ideas, I have to go with Kazuyo's in the first photo as it is something my dogs would love - very soft and comfy!

I can't vote on any of them. Don't like the choices. I do like a couple of the ones that groveraxle posted the planter and the outdoor one.

I've owned many dogs in my life and none of these seem particularly useful or dog friendly (the first picture seems the closest to something a dog would actually enjoy). My dogs would freak out if they were stuffed into the orange one and the white shelves hardly seem to be functioning as anything dog related. The bottom right corner doesn't look too comfy for either dogs or humans. Doggie design should be simple and functional. Can never go wrong with a fluffy round dog bed!

I voted Architect: Toyo Ito only because it is more basket like than the others.

Interesting choices! Now for the bonus here is my own pick - the adorable Canopy Dog Bed by La Lune Collection.

I find many of these items rather ridiculous and unpractical. Don't get me wrong I LOVE dogs:)
