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, 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!)
These are our dogs, Leela (top) and Bailey (bottom) sitting with our recently finished DIY project, a mid-century modern chair we picked up of the side of the road. I’ve also included a photo of the ‘before’ state of the chair. Leela had meandered under it for a rest the day we were working on it in the backyard this passed summer.

coco would love to submit this pic for pets on furniture….she’s on an ikea bookshelf next to the good old kartell lamp…
Our one year old little dude, Gary, claims every piece of furniture in our home. Couches, chairs, beds, tables…nothing is out of bounds in his mind.

The first picture features a media console I built and was trying to photograph (sans kitties) for my blog. The divas, Lily and Stinkerbelle, would not stay off the console. They live for a good photo op…The second one is of Lily soaking up some rays on the same console.

This picture is of one of my cats, Moo Moo. She loves lounging on her retro cat bed (etsy) as well as our furniture. She always hops right in and claims her spot!

My husband and I just re organized our bedroom to have a little “nook”. I tried to take a picture to send to my mom to show her, but Lily, our french bulldog, wanted to be in the picture too.
Leroy is obsessed with the birds outside so I usually find him hear making chirping sounds. Chair is thrifted Modern Danish and covered in sheepskin. Pillow is a local silkscreener that makes cityscapes of our fair city.
