Monday’s pets on furniture – part 1

Posted on Mon, 2 May 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 closeups of your pet!)

Normally the pink throw is Lilly’s favorite spot to be but she also likes to curl up next to the pillows on my bed. It’s hard to resist a power nap when I see her laying around like that. 

Please see 2 pictures of my cat Aalto sitting on a mid century modern credenza. And in one of the photos you can see Aalto sitting next to an Alvar Aalto vase. I named her after Alvar Aalto who is a favorite architect of mine.

(Here are) pics of our vizsla Beatrice Bella who has her very own Brizvegas urban dog blog here.  As you can see from the following link she loves furniture!

This chair was originally stained a dark ugly brown, and (unsurprisingly) it was buried in my parents’ basement for more than 30 years. Recently, though, I decided that my dining room needed a blue chair, so I painted it, distressed it, and brought it home for my cat, Roxie. Now she can sit and watch the squirrels in style!

This chair is a vintage find with a new paint job that Sophie just adores.

Here is my cat Lily on my director chair, her favorite spot! She spends hours to sleep on this chair.

My Belgian shepherd Scout moves to the outside furniture as soon as the weather warms up.

See 11 month old Jack? Jack is not allowed to sit on the furniture. See the suitcase on the green chair? Chairs are for suitcases; one-off silvered leather ottomans from ABC Home in NY are for dogs, obvs. Jack was sleeping on the silvered leather ottoman, but when “someone” reached for the camera, he woke up moving his head, upsetting his balance, and slid to the floor. Good thing there was a dog pillow on the floor next to the dog ottoman silvered leather ottoman from ABC Home. Good thing sliding to the floor didn’t interrupt Jack’s nap.

This is our 14 year old cat Louis, resting on an arm chair we found on the side of the road which we re-upholstered in Ikea fabric. Lucky you can’t see how much cat hair is on it!
– Charlotte (Lennox Head, Australia)
This is a picture of our Catahoula Leopard Dog, Reggie, on his favorite chair for watching TV. The picture was taken by my fabulous friend Elise!
– Katie
Large leather chair. Larger Labrador. This is our mellow yellow, Chippewa. She spends her days moving from one resting spot to another throughout the house.
