Furniture company launches pet photo contest
Conventional wisdom would suggest that it's a good idea to keep pets off your pricey midcentury modern furniture, but furniture company Modernica is giving design buffs a reason to encourage their animals to hop on up.
Modernica is holding a "Pets on Furniture" photo contest and encouraging its fans to submit their shots of their pets on midcentury modern furniture, The Times' home and garden blog L.A. at Home reports.
A winner will be named every week through the end of January and a grand prize winner will be announced Feb. 14. The grand prize winner will have the chance to choose from four prize options offered by Modernica: an Isamu Noguchi coffee table valued at $695, a Noguchi dining table ($795), a Pierre Paulin easy chair ($1,170) and a George Nelson bubble lamp ($269).
Modernica says photo entries should be clear and the furniture shown should be recognizable. The pet's name and a description of the furniture or the name of its designer should be included, and the photo must be original. You can see more shots of pets on stylish furniture, vote on your favorites and learn how to submit your own at Modernica's blog.
