Monday's pets on furniture

"I send a photo of my sister's dog called Rufus, she will be looking forward to seeing your blog."
- Susanna (from Spain)

"I'm a graphic designer and illustrator from Switzerland. Here you can see my ridiculous attempt to protect my sofa from two fighting kittens. The sofa lost and had to go. But there's so much more important things I can use my money for, like cat food, the vet and cat food! And they can always rest on the bed, two special cat chairs, the balcony and the various cushions. Also we have friendly neighbours with lots of furniture and there must be several women who care for my tiger, he often smells of perfume when he comes home."
- Stefanie

"Felfel is my 11 years old lady cat who's not afraid of skin cancer! She spends hours on that old chair everyday just to get her vitamin D..."
- Julie (from Quebec City)

"Here's my cat on our sofa. Contemplative."
- Karyn

"Knowing how much you enjoy pets on furniture or just pets being pets, I've attached photos of our 2-year old Persian cat, Kitty Bang Bang, helping out with last year's Christmas decor."
- Lady

"For your 'animals on furniture' series, this is Morgan on the couch about to give me stink eye. Morgans are not supposed to be on the couch, but looking at them, how could I make him get down?"
- Holyoke Home

"My name is Monica, and i'm a medical student from Northern Italy. These "pets on furniture" are so sweet, and i can't avoid to add to this beautiful pictures my little Camillo during his favourite activity...you guess!"

- Monica

"Well, after seeing the Frenchies on one of your posts, I had to send you a photo of my Pipi sitting on my bedroom chair!"
- Eileen

"its not really 'pet ON furniture'....more like 'pet IN furniture'...! This is Pudgie, an American Snow Shoe [I think?] my mother saved him from an abusive home when he was just a kitten. Now he's enjoying his golden years sleeping and well basically thinking he's human...he even sits on a chair at the dinner table when we eat...he's totally one of a kind!"
- Stacey

"I enjoy your weekly posts about pets on furniture. Here's another one to add to your collection. This was our Tibetan Mastiff, Tannin, who had full run of our house until she passed away last November. We miss her everyday."
- Sara C. (from California)

"May I add this to share on your "dog-blog"??? The other dogs are sooooo cute & precious, and of course, I think our Belle-girl is too!"
- Linda

"First of all, I love your blog! And especially love the section animals on furniture, so I send you 3 pics of my loved cats, Phill, Dodi and Luma. They love to stay on furniture, Phiil on the terrace chairs, Luma on the "rede" a typical brasilian furniture and Dodi loves when its Christmas time so he can jump and sleep in the decoration boxes."
- Marília Matoso (from Recife-PE, Brazil)

"I'm writing in to just say I love these cute posts of pet on furniture.. nice to know it's not just me who allows my pooch to lounge in style.. although as you can see from the pic of my Doberman Pinscher Skuzzy, it's not like I have any say in it! She loves that Queen Anne Sofa! Perhaps because it's so far the swishest item in my WIP house? teehee"
- Lisa

"I noticed recently Pets on Furniture and have a question...I too have pet's who would rather hang out on the furniture than anyplace else and was wondering if you or your readers have any tips on keeping the smells off the furniture...
Recently, I am temporarily living with a friend and he is complaining about the dog smell. I have discovered fizzion which seems to work wonderfully but would love to hear any other tips to keeping a house poet odor free....
- Jennifer

Anyone have any advice? And with my 6 cat household I'd love to hear some ideas as I'm sure my house doesn't quite smell as fresh as it could.


Roo Way

Hi everyone! Let's start the week with great photos. Roo Way is primarily a lifestyle and product snapper but I love his interior shots. There's a life to these shots, not static at all and that light just bounces. Now if I could just be inspired as much by his lifestyle shots I'd find myself hiking and biking next weekend!

WINKS - weekend links. Here we list what has come in during the week, things we've found and things we think you'll want to see. If you'd like to see your blog or website featured email us and if we think it fits with our readers we'll link you. So what's in this week?

  • Sexy legs! OMG what sexy legs. The House of Habit can take the simply beautiful to the sublime. Whether the same leathers as Prada uses, hand painted, metal or crystal encrusted they are pure luxury.

  • Gorgeous home accessories from Danish label nord are now available at Le Souk. If you haven't been to Danielle's stylish webshop then you're in for a treat. Based in The Netherlands Danielle ships world-wide. Too tempting! She has such a wonderful eye. Love it all.

  • Normann Copenhagen presents the Mormor/Grandma series designed by Gry Fager. Inspired by textiles it's a humorous and functional series just right for breakfast, lunch or for a picnic. Talk about granny chic. You can find it at Dansk Design.

  • GSelect .... it's supposed to be all about style for the boys but if minimalist, form follows function and drop dead gorgeous modern design ticks your boxes then there are plenty of luxury lovelies for you on this site.

  • I'm smitten by Gesa Hansen's current furniture collection "The Hansen Family". Home grown wood, handmade furniture, new Scandinavian design. Love the desk! More here.

  • Mesmerised by the photography of Myla Kent. Coloured smoke (incense) curling away. You'll find them at her Etsy shop.


Latest from Christopher Gaona

Interior designer Christopher Gaona emailed us about his latest project that I thought I'd share with you all to end of this work week. "Purely interior design, gutted the original space down to the studs. Minimal Decoration emphasis but a fun project for a couple of recent empty nesters here in Los Angeles." Wonderful details in the ceiling and all those built-ins. Thanks Chris!

(See more of his work here and here).
