Most cat enthusiasts would agree that our feline friends deserve the best of the best. Thanks to several designers over the last few years, house-proud cat owners no longer have to settle for ugly cat furniture. The latest design to catch our eye is the minimalist NEKO cat tree, designed by Yoh Komiyama for Japanese manufacturer Rinn.

Made from wood sourced from the Hida region of Japan, the main cylindrical structure is composed of natural wooden slates, that allow playful patterns of light to flow through the gaps, as well as the option for cat owners to see and play with their pet. The multi-story cat tree also features an elegant marble base, providing a place for the cat to stay cool, and a hemp cord-covered central pillar for a scratching post.

According to Rinn, this mixture of marble and natural wood expresses a “cultural fusion between the wooden materials of the East, and the stone materials of the West.” Inside, the wooden structure houses three levels, upholstered in super-soft Kvadrat fabric. This gives playful kitties room to climb and explore, while providing older cats a place to snooze.
