Hot Dog Sofa – Fast Food für Ihr Interieur Burger und Hot Dog zählen zweifelsohne zu den bekanntesten Fast Food Speisen und führten zu einer nachhaltigen Prägung des Begriffes. Denkt man an das Strassenbild amerikanischer Metropolen, dann kommt einem sofort das hektische Treiben in den Sinn, in dem sich die Passanten an den typischen Hot Dog Ständen einen schnellen Snack für zwischendurch kaufen. Aber nicht nur auf dem Teller erfreuen sich Hot Dogs grosser Beliebtheit, auch im heimischen Wohnzimmer sorgt das Würstchen im Brötchen für Begeisterung. Gemeinsam mit dem Designbüro Studio Job brachte das italienische Label SELETTI das Hot Dog Sofa heraus, das wie auch der Burger Chair Sessel zur BLOW Kollektion gehört. Extravagantes Designer Sofa in detailreicher Ausführung Das Sofa in Hot Dog Form zieht alle Blicke auf sich. Bei der Gestaltung des Sofas bewiesen die Designer viel Liebe zum Detail. So sind die Sitzfläche und die Rückenlehne nicht nur in der Optik eines aufgeschnittenen Hot Dog Brötchens gestaltet, sondern auch das Würstchen mit Senf sowie die Gurken- und Tomantenscheiben in Form von Dekokissen fehlen nicht. Die Grundstruktur des Hot Dog Sofas besteht aus Holz, Metall und Polyurethan. Das Sofa steht auf eleganten vergoldeten Füssen, die aus hochwertigem Harz gefertigt werden. Für den Bezug kommt eine Mischung aus Baumwolle, Leinen, Viskose und Polyester zum Einsatz.

Die Möbel, Leuchten und Dekoration der Serie brechen mit Konventionen und schlagen eine Brücke zwischen Kunst und Design.

When Cara felt her teenaged children slipping away and saw an empty nest on the horizon, she decided the best way to fill that void was with dogs - lots of them - and so her foster journey began. In 2015, her Pennsylvania farm became a haven for Operation Paws for Homes. There were the nine puppies at once, which arrived with less than a day's notice; a heart-worm positive dog; a deeply traumatized stray pup from Iraq; and countless others who just needed a gentle touch and a warm place to sleep. Operation Paws for Homes rescues dogs from high-kill shelters in the rural south and shuttles them north to foster homes like Cara's on the way to their forever homes. What started as a search for a good dog, led to an epiphany that there wasn't just one that could fill the hole left in her heart from her children gaining independence - she could save dozens along the way. The stories of these remarkable dogs-including an 80-pound bloodhound who sang arias for the neighbors - and the joy they bring to Cara and her family (along with a few chewed sofa cushions) fill this touching and inspiring new book that reveals the wonderful rewards of fostering. When asked how she can possibly say goodbye to that many loveable pups, Cara says, "If I don't give this one away, I can't possibly save another." 1. Language: English. Narrator: Xe Sands.

Owning a dog is a big commitment and you should know what is involved in owning your boxer and getting the most out of your relationship with him. Boxers are loving and lovable and if you treat him right, you will both have hours of pleasure together. Boxers are intelligent and full of energy so you will need good training skills to show them who is boss. Otherwise, they will be more than willing to take the lead - literally! They also need lots of exercise so don’t get a boxer if you find it hard to get up off the sofa. Look on the bright side, you will be as fit as a flea in no time and have a super-toned body and svelte silhouette. This book teaches you - not your dog, as many dog owners think - how to train your boxer with rewards rather than punishment. Your boxer wants to please you but he is begging out for guidance from a leader. He has joined your pack, not the other way round. Using consistency and firm but kind guidelines, you will make a friend for life who will always be happy to see you and love you no matter what. However, you should also be aware that boxers quite often have a shorter lifespan than some other dogs and are prone to certain diseases. This book will tell you what to look out for and what you should be asking the breeder or kennels you get your boxer from. Some diseases are inherited from their parents and a good breeder will supply you with this information. Every dog is different, but boxers do have generic traits and behavior that you can be aware of by listening to this book. Hopefully, you have bought it before you get your boxer. In any event, it will be useful in the training and care of your dog. I hope you enjoy your time together. Download your copy now! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Millian Quinteros.

What does Alvar Aalto's 1 Paimio have in common with a Doberman Pinscher, Le Corbusiers LC4 with a Spanish Greyhound, or Philippe Starck's Costes Chair with a Fox Terrier? Not a lot, you may think. But look again and you might notice shared traits in form, colour, personality, stature and style. Author and illustrator Cristina Amodeo draws parallels between nearly twenty-five dogs and designer chairs in this fun and stylish book that matches iconic chairs with their corresponding breed of dog. Who knows if Arne Jacobsen had a Welsh Corgi in mind when he designed his Grand Prix Chair? Or whether a Scottish Deerhound ever entered Ron Arad's head while designing his Victoria and Albert Sofa? Who cares, when dogs and chairs make such elegant designer pairs.
