Monday’s pets on furniture – part 1

Posted on Mon, 30 Jan 2012 by KiM

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!)

This is Bo, my 7 month old rescue. She was found 2 months ago tied to a fence here in Brooklyn. She had a terrible wound on the back of her neck that has healed well. Her favorite spot is on my Moller 78 chairs. Thank god she does not use them as a scratching post!
Along with Bo i have a wonderful dog called Maddie. She is a 2 year old Goldendoodle who loves relaxing on her favorite chair.
– Alex

the dining table: desk, renovated by husband, passed down from father-in-law, quite old.
the cat: mulvey, the manx, also quite old (about 16 years). she can get up there all by herself, but needs help on the dismount (her suspension springs aren’t what the used to be)

– Patti (Brisbane)

This is Moco Vinny in my cramped (but efficient) studio. She is on top of a trash find and next to a Craigslist free mid century bookshelf-type thingy. Very glamorous.
The pics below are of Farrah Boo in our little sun room.  She is the fat lardy blob on the long couch.
Third pic is also Moco Vinny on the same couch salivating after the birds.
– Pam

This is Chloe. She is making herself comfortable on my folding chair from Anthropologie. She sometimes sits here while I am getting ready in the morning.
– Anna (Media, PA)

Jules & Zola in their customary position on the duvet cover I made from old drapes.
– Heather

This is my bulldog Buster, sitting atop his throne in our soho loft. Hands down, best snuggler I know!
– Genevieve

Here are some pictures of my cat Sammich on a loveseat my mom reupholstered for me in my favorite pattern, houndstooth.
– Sarah (North Carolina)

Mia (black) and Cali (white) on slipper chair in my living room.
– Jody (Kensington MD)

My little dog is named Stevie. He’s a 4 year old pug/terrier rescue from the ASPCA who has commandeered the chair as his own. I was taking a piano lesson at the time and he was just listening and relaxing!
– Mike (NY)

Clover is on his favorite piece of furniture, a Barcelona chair. I adopted from the ASPCA in California 6 years ago while in college.
Gatsby, our 3 year old handsome mutt from the ASPCA in Chicago, is napping in front of a modern bookcase.
– Annie (Chicago, IL)

Erin & Cata, thanks for your sweet comment, it means the world to me! You should see the back garden in the spring/summer…right now all is dead because of a freeze here in Orlando a few weeks ago. Digressing! All I wanted to say is thanks you guys!!!

+1 for Pam's place! 🙂 So very stylish, but also very personal and very … home! Wish you enjoy it to the fullest.

PS Kiss Farrah Boo for me! She looks very kissable!

All of them know a good deal of decoration, Mulvey and Summich ahead. Well done animal companions.

ASPCA rocks! Annie, Clover and Gatsby are adorable.

Mike, Stevie is loving your music.

I'm snuggling with my English Bull Dog right now on our couch, so I have to second Genevieve's submission. Such a fun series you're doing!

pam says:

Red Scorpio, thanks so much for the message! (First time I am in any way associated with the word 'stylish'…might frame your comment 🙂 I will give a kiss to Farrah Boo…and yes, she is highly kissable and huggable too!
