Mr. Waffles Loves Design
When noted design collector and published author Lisa S. Roberts discovered her new shelter cat climbing, jumping, rubbing and sleeping on her contemporary furniture and products, rather than freaking out, she began snapping photos. This became the inspiration for this whimsical and lavishly illustrated book.
Mr. Waffles, a sleek black Burmese cat, offsets the bright colorful designs by world-famous architects and designers. Each spread includes original photography of cat and design, a brief informative description, and a humorous “observation” or “comment” by critic Mr. Waffles. This feline doesn’t just see a chair; he sees a potential scratching post, gym. His curiosity amuses throughout as he tips over trash cans, sniffs toilet brushes, poses in chairs, plays chess, and sits on top of a circular bookshelf. Design just got a whole lot more entertaining with Mr. Waffles leading the way.
