Meredith Swinehart founder of Faunamade with two black cats


Faunamade is the work of Meredith Swinehart—longtime Remodelista editor, former retail homewares buyer, and sometime interior designer to friends. She's also an animal lover who, while living in Philadelphia a decade ago and actively searching for a dog to adopt, was followed home by a pregnant, homeless street cat looking for a place to stay. The cat did stay—and, after prompting countless fruitless searches for good-looking pet stuff, became the inspiration for Faunamade. 

We believe you and your pets should both love the things you buy, and we hope you agree!
