Choupette models the Swing hammock bed by LucyBalu

A cat bed launched in collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld's pet features in today's Dezeen Weekly newsletter

The latest edition of our Dezeen Weekly newsletter features a cat bed launched in collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld's pet.

Readers are amused by a collaboration between animal furniture brand LucyBalu and late fashion designer Lagerfeld's cat Choupette.

Choupette, who is rumoured to be heir to some of Lagerfeld's huge fortune, endorsed the hammock-style cat bed called Swing when it was delivered to her via her agent.

After receiving the bed as a gift it quickly became Choupette's favourite place to sleep and the idea of a collaboration between her and LucyBalu was born.
