Monday’s pets on furniture – part 1

Posted on Mon, 7 Feb 2011 by KiM

If you’d like to send us photos to include in next week’s “pets on furniture” post, please ensure your photos follow our 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, the photo must be of decent quality. If it’s dark or fuzzy (from a camera phone) then it may not make the cut. Thanks! (Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to desiretoinspirekim[@]hotmail[.]com and PLEASE don’t send me closeups of your pet!)

This is Igby! My four month old Shih Tzu.
– Jessie

Here’s our rescue beagle, Molly Ivins, on two of my favorite pieces of furniture: the consignment shop Century Furniture club chair, and the faux-grass estate sale chair. Though these are family heirlooms, both
are greatly improved by the addition of Miss Molly!


Pls find attached the photo of our family dog. It is called Enzo and he is 6 years old.

My husband and I just adopted our little 3 year old Beagle/Foxhound named January from the Ottawa Humane Society 2 weeks ago and we love her.  She has made herself right at home on our 2 vintage turquoise arm chairs.
– Jennifer B. (Ottawa)

Mollie, my soft coated wheaten terrier, loves to nap on our red leather sofa, preferably with a pillow.
– Jo

Here’s Trifolio, a 8 years old pet with no defined race. He loves the Cine Boeri sofa, but he believes the 50’s chair belongs to him.
– Silvana (Brazil)

I took these two pictures the other day of my 3 year old tabby cat, Izzy, also known as Lumzy Lou or Izzy Lou Who. I was on the couch reading your blog & she just watched the screen the whole time, I love how the green in your blog header makes her eyes look so bright! Thought I’d put two pics in one since the computer screen one makes it a bit of a close up, so at least this will show our beautiful new Macy’s sectional as well.
– Jessica (St. Pete, FL)

this is a photo of my cat Dalila. she loves sleep on the couch. now she is 9 years old. its a member of my family. this is other picture with Dalila and my old dog Berny on my couch. there were very friendly.
– Milagros (Cordoba, Argentina)

My lazy cats Miki & Minni spend most of the time sleeping during the winter.
– Kadri (Estonia)

I've just recently started to follow this blog and I must say that the "pets on furniture" is a fun interruption to the usual pictures of interior design where people or animals are seldom shown. Thanks!

Lol I love the concept of this blog post and as a photography lover of shadows and reflections, can I just say that photo of the cat and dog by Milagros is stunning!

I just found your blog using stumbleupon, which I just joined. This post of wonderful furniture combined with adorable animals is fantastic. I'll be back :)))

I am a pet portrait artist and you've inspired me to not only want to draw the animals but to draw them lounging on beautiful furniture. What a great idea for a post! (darn, I wish I thought of it!) I will share this on my blog and FB page. Thanks!
