Monday’s pets on furniture – part 2

Posted on Mon, 12 Mar 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.comand PLEASE don’t send closeups of your pet!)

We have 3 wonderful cats. Dolce is the leader of the pack. He is a seven year old Siamese who is the love of our life. During the day, he likes lounging on Italian furniture, especially on pieces that suit his coloring. Other than that, he loves listening to hip hop and being admired. He is also a major foodie who loves to eat everything from steak and pasta to macaroons. We adore him!

Here is my cat Butler on my Eames DSW chair. I had been sat on it, working, and got up to make a cup of tea. As you can see, he has made himself very comfortable in a very short space of time and I didn’t have the heart to kick him off – especially as he goes so well with the chair, and contrasts so nicely with my pink cushion!

This is Teacup (Japanese Bobtail, aka Hello Kitty) and Bleau (Great Dane, aka Scooby Doo). They enjoy nesting on our denim sofa. Such a tough day…

Joaquina is a French Bulldog that is basically part of the design of my apartment in São Paulo, Brasil, and an extention of myself. She is alowed everywhere in our place and always goes with me to clients homes. The first picture was taken at her friends house Carlota. They are lounging with the winter outfits in some gorgeous antique furniture. In the second picture joaquina is chilling in our black,red, and white bedroom at home. (notice the pillow in her homage.) Finally joaquina is sitting on the Jonathan Adler zebra rug enjoying the babyboy room I had just finished designing.

Mallie, our yellow lab, napping on the shelf of the cocktail table in the summer. The wood’s cool suface is what we believe is appealing.

Thanks for featuring Xander! All of the sleeping babies are so cute! Love Foxy's stretch. And Karina, Xander is a foodie like Dolce–I had to wrestle him away from the Fig Newtons last night.

Alicja says:

So many great pets today… That Dolce looks perfect in that interior! What a majestic cat and I like those ghost chairs with the sheep skins. So cozy!

Thea says:

Amazing photos!!!!! I loved Xander and….. the major foodie dolce!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nice Blog!

Karina says:

Thank you for posting our Dolce and all the other perfect pets! I have to say that Dolce is as nice on the inside as he is on the outside. I hope this post does not get into his head and he will remain humble. Maybe Dolce and Xander can share a meal while listening to Jay Z.
