Round two!
Some interior designers take their dogs everywhere with them, and they become known. Not as well as the designer, but perhaps(!). Man's best friend loves great interior design as much as we do, as you can see from the designer dogs here.

If you have a dog and they try to get on the furniture, they just want to be closer to you. Should furniture perching be forbidden? I think no. They like the good life too. Sure, you can get them a fabulous dog bed at Canine Styles or John Robshaw, but they really want to be next to you. Designer and shop owner Liz Bauer's Lilly finds upholstery is not enough, she goes for the desk, a mirror, and the coffee table. She is more of an ornament, a decorative addition. With that face, it is hard to say no. Don't deny them!

The desk, sure

Good thing she is staying away from the ikat!

Better to see myself in

If you have a dog that likes to sit on the furniture, send it in! I want to see your canine's style.
