Monday’s pets on furniture

Posted on Mon, 24 Oct 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!)

This is my Brussels Griffon, Alma, on a Room & Board couch.
– Lauren (New York City)

My boyfriend wanted it black, I wanted it white, so we bought a grey sofa. The cat’s loved it anyhow. Leon (on the armrest) and Idde.
– Ylva (Swedish, with a Norwegian boyfriend, living in Australia)

I am submitting photos we took during our recent vacation at Casale Monticchio in Umbria, Italy.  One of the resident cats, Jasper, often came to visit us in our apartment, a 17th century converted outbuilding, which originally housed stables, pigsties, wine presses and a bread oven.

This is my dear French bulldog/shih tzu mix, Bo. She sits in her favourite corner of our well loved, down-stuffed leather sofa. Inevitably the pillows she is perched on are dramatically shoved off moments after she jumps up to rest her nearly hairless belly on the cool leather! For such a silly little dog, she certainly looks serious in this picture.
– Jen (London, Ontario)

My cat (Nancy Raygun) chillin’ on my bed. Artwork in the background is: bird print, tree print, mermaid, beard couple, swimmer
– Kelsey

I snapped this recently of our cat, Smokey, enjoying a few minutes of peace on our couch. Our daughter was born 7 weeks ago, so life in our house has been a bit crazy! Smokey didn’t really appreciate my interrupting her nap but I couldn’t help it 🙂
– Barbara

I send the picture of my cat, I know that the furniture ( table) is not clear, but i simply think that is a perfect picture for a halloween pets post, a black cat and a BOO! He is Rasputín, my 5 months cat, we live in south Spain, and I was printing some printables for the halloween decorations and he decided to appear behind the computer.

Justyna says:

your monday posts always put the biggest smile on my face! LOVELY little muffins!

Caroline says:

I am sure one of you lovely, and all-knowing, readers can tell me where that black and white rug is from in the first picture. Lauren?


KiM says:

Justyna, did you end up with custody of that huge dog I saw when I stopped by your place? If so you should totally send in a photo of that gorgeous beast.

Caroline, I am in love with Lauren's rug too. Maybe she'll spill the beans as to where it came from.

Lauren says:

Hi Caroline and Kim! The navy and white rug was purchased at a Madeline Weinrib sample sale at ABC Carpet. Love her bold patterns.

f says:

love that BOO!!! LOL!!!

Samma says:

I was admiring the world map in the 1st pic – do you recall where that came from, Lauren?
I always look forward to the Monday pets on furniture, too. So many precious fur critters, and fun little peeks into other people's lives = )

Lauren says:

Samma, the world map is from Monocle. I got it at their West Village location. They also have a London based ecommerce site:

David says:

Alma is wonderful, as is the living room. Thanks to all who take the time to share their Pets on Furniture. My favorites get added to my rotating Windows 7 wallpaper. I'm up to 145 of these great photos.

Tom says:

Love the BOO too! What a HOOT!

Barbro says:

Ylva, your cats Leon and Idde are "helt underbara"!!!
