a campaign revealing mini furniture for cats is unveiled in japan amid a new generation of craftsmen’s hopes to build upon a once-prosperous industry. the 60-second clip shows the feline friends-come-guinea pigs getting comfy on genuine furniture scaled down to their size.

the campaign, produced by okawa city, hopes to promote the area in fukuoka, a hub for professional craftsmen specialising in traditional crafts such as woodworking, hardware, glass and cutlery. the prefecture, which is is home to 150 furniture-manufacturing factories, once boasted a large industry for wedding furniture specifically made from kiri, a light but strong japanese wood used for chests and boxes.

under the banner ‘craftsman MADE’, a succeeding generation hope their feline friends will help to PR okawa furniture (and with a strong history of viral hits on the internet, it seem likely they’ll be successful). the furniture will be exhibited at the city’s tourism and interior information centre, okawa terrazza.

    Did the cats tell you that? How dare you assume their thoughts! #humanswanttoowneverything

  • Furniture for cats is a great idea (for people). The cats I know would much
    prefer to sit on furniture for people. Or on their people themselves.
