Fluffy Fuchsia Carpet (also available in black)
I recently became obsessed with Purrfidious Etsy shop, thanks to its chic array of accessories and decor with the modern cat lover in mind.
Purrfidious is the brain child of Marta, a feline fancier from Poland who was inspired by her love of all things cat to create a line of goods that won't just sit on your shelf and gather dust. She uses various materials to create her designs, which include clocks and coasters, stylish jewelry, mugs, rugs, and more.

I asked Marta to tell me a little more about her two feline muses, Ozzy and Iggy, and here's what she had to say:
I always wanted to have a cat. When I was a child, I saw a Sheba ad in a magazine that we got from friends from Western Germany. We still had communism in Poland at that time, and everything that came from the Western world seemed to be so colorful and perfect, including the blue British Shorthair cat from the ad.
When I grew up and moved into my own house with my boyfriend, my dream came true when we got our first cat, a chocolate colored British Shorthair named Ozzy. After a few months, we brought him a blue-eyed friend named Iggy. Iggy loves the camera, and that's why he attends all photo shoots, and I call him my marketing manager. He seriously could sell anything!
My cats are big and totally round - round head, round ears, round eyes. That's why most of my designs are following this shape. Even my mugs look heavy ;)
What I want to offer to my customers is simple, nice design, so different from all that you can buy for cat lovers. Unfortunately my mother-in-law-to-be is still giving me gifts that I'm running away from: for instance tinsel cats made of glass and other dust catchers... She seems not to get my idea of gifts for a cat person. She couldn't be my marketing manager, but I already have Iggy to do that ;)
