Modernica's Pets on Furniture contest

January 11, 2011 |  6:00 am


Don't we all snap photos of our pets on vintage midcentury modern furniture? (These adorable dogs apparently prefer fiberglass Eames chairs over an upholstered Marshmallow sofa.)

The animal lovers at Modernica want to see more -- from you.

Echo-on-rockerThe store is accepting entries for its Pets on Furniture contest through Jan. 31. Simply upload a photo of your beloved pet on a piece of modern furniture -- think Noguchi or Nelson -- and try to win votes from Modernica's blog readers. Cast your vote too. A winner will be named weekly; a grand prize winner will be announced Feb 14.

Prizes include an Isamu Noguchi coffee table ($695), a Noguchi dining table ($795), a Pierre Paulin easy chair ($1,170) and a George Nelson bubble lamp ($269).

"We're always trying to get people involved," Modernica co-owner Jay Novak says. "It proved to be really popular last year. I got so involved I actually voted last year. Our customers are directors and art directors and cinematographers, so some of the pictures that come in are really fabulous."

Photos must be of a pet on modern furniture -- make sure the furniture is recognizable -- and must be original.
