If you'd like to send me photos to include in next week's "pets on furniture" post, please ensure your photos follow my basic rules: First, the pet must be on a piece of furniture. And said piece of furniture must be clearly visible in the photo, so it takes center stage rather than your pet. Think of it more of a photo of a great piece of furniture that you want to show off...and your pet happens to be sitting on it. And second, if the photo is too dark or unfocused then it may not make the cut. Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and PLEASE don't send closeups of your pet! Thanks!

here are two shots of my silver tabby linus. i inherited the mid century teak chairs from my grandmother (who was ahead of her time) and they were made in italy. one shot is the chair on the original striped fabric, the cat wore through the fabric so I reupholstered it chartreuse knoll fabric.

I'm sending you two pics of my girls' room with a nice dresser with our cat Boo in it. Boo is a true survivor: He always manages to find somewhere to sleep even though my youngest girl keeps tracking him down and waking him up. His sense of creativity in finding new beds is amazing. Today, he pretended to be a toy cat in their playroom. Didn't really work.
Run away! Run away! Dream of a way to get away. It's Monday and you're chained to your work desk. Take a little time to fantasise about Hotel Fasano Punta del Este in Uruguay. A breathtaking setting for a stylish complex designed by Isay Weinfeld. Whether leaning on the sill of the indoor pool or watching the sun go down with cocktails on the deck I'm sure you can escape through your computer screen for just a little while. No one will notice. I promise.
