Testing Crypton Dog Bed

May 17th, 2013 7:03 am

Crypton fabric is arguably the most durable commercial-grade fabric on the market. Other antibacterial/antimicrobial, soil-resistant technologies have been introduced, but Crypton was the first, and is the most recognized in the interior design industry. It was only a matter of time, that the company would introduce a home line, and specifically a Crypton pet bed collection.

As an interior desinger, I specify Crypton upholstery all the time. Best for heavy-usage and healthcare applications, Crypton fabrics offer permanent stain, moisture, mildew, bacteria and odor-resistance. Same attributes are key in heavy-usage residential applications, especially around pets.

 

INTRODUCING VIKTOR’S NEW CRYPTON PET BED

 

Viktor is 14 months old. He is done growing now (I sure hope so), but in the last year, heĀ  went through 5 beds due to size change but also his heavy chewing, pulling, wrestling behavior. When I realized Crypton has a pet bed collection, I was sold. Having specified this fabric on commercial jobs, I have complete faith in its long-lasting nature.

SIZE & MAINTENANCE

Viktor is a big boy. He is an 80 pound Weimaraner, who is used sleeping in a bolster beds as opposed to a flat pillow with no edges. Because the bolster bed fully unzips, both the cushion and the bolster cover can be washed. Between its cute pattern and color, and the easy maintenance, I selected the Dogland Oval Bolster Bed in Olive.

The large bed measures 33″ wide by 44″ long by 12″ high. I mean it’s a LARGE bed. You better have room for it!

THE LOOK AND FEEL

This is one of the new offerings from Crypton’s William Wegman Collection. I like it. What’s there not to like. The fabric feels silky to the touch, but yet offers outstanding durability. The contrasting puping of brown against the olive green overall pattern makes it look handsome, and trendy. The pattern is not something that’s woven on the surface that Viktor could pull or scratch on. It’s an integral part of the entire fabric, which is nice.

COMFORT

The bed is VERY cushy. Every other bed we bought for Viktor had a flimsy insert that flattened out after a month of use. I don’t think we have to worry about this with the Dogland Dog Bed.

TESTING…

On the first try, Viktor looks content. Wouldn’t you agree. Almost as if he was saying: yes, this will do, Aga. That’s our prince, Viktor!

Since Viktor uses and abuses his beds pretty intensely, I look forward to seeing how the Dogland Oval Bolster bed holds up in the coming weeks. I intent to write a 1-month-in-use blog post to give you an idea of how it really performed.

Until then.
