Poppy and Rufus

Poppy and Rufus for luxury dog products.  Dog beds, dog walking bags, dog storage, dog travel accessories, welly bag, travel bowl and lots more.

The online shop was founded by ourselves, Sue and Louise, and inspired by our dogs, Poppy the Cocker Spaniel and Rufus the Jack Russell cross.

The brand came to life when we found ourselves frustrated by the offerings of the UK pet market. Keen to produce a practical dog bed in colours and designs we’d be proud to show off in our homes, we set to work on a range of essential products for dog owners, offering function with style and mirroring the concept of well known designers who had transformed everyday household products into something special.

Poppy and Rufus takes inspiration from Scandanavian chic and timeless designs. Deliberately neutral, our signature style is carried across the entire range to match beautifully. All  items are washable, wipeable, cosy, comfy and portable!

We are proud to be a British company, using traditional British craftsmen and materials, sourcing everything from the UK.

The Face Behind The Business

Sue and Louise

We have been friends since university and share a mutual love of gorgeous colour combinations, creative designs, inspirational interiors and what’s new in the shops.

In 2011 we both took ownership of our beloved pups, Poppy and Rufus.  Sue began wondering why it was so hard to find a proper, functional dog bed that wasn’t dull or kitsch.  Sue shared this with Louise and they began producing the exact dog beds that they were looking for.  Practical, lovely colours to match their homes. Functional and gorgeous.

The key was to find the exact colour palettes and fabric designs that would give the right look and feel.  This look could then carry across everything we made – beds, storage boxes, bowls.  We loved the idea of a matching range and the only way to achieve this was to create our very own fabric designs.

I hope you love what we have created as much as we do.
