As someone who has proudly self-identified as a crazy cat lady for most of her life, I’m delighted to inform you that the cat lady aesthetic is officially en vogue. Literally. Vogue magazine recently published an essay on how the once dorky associations that come with loving felines have been replaced by much cooler, and dare we say chicer, vibes. Indeed, nowadays there are a plethora of cat-friendly and cat-themed home decor items that are ripe for replacing your matted old cat tower or plastic litter box. So, whether you count yourself among the cat lady crew or you’re looking to pick up a gift for your kitty obsessed friend, here are 15 supremely chic pieces we recommend.
