I applaud the mental and physical execution of this exercise, but it is still dumb.

Per the first reply, dogs don't understand exceptions. They only understand 'yes' and 'no'.

Train them to stay off all furniture (including your bed) if that is what you want. Every time you see them attempt to hop on furniture, give them a firm 'No!' and get them off the furniture. Even better, teach them the command of 'Off!'.

They will stay off the furniture while you are at home. Cover your sofas and close your bedroom doors while you are away.

Very nice. However the 1st and 4th pictures (same person) on the top left row are fake. You can tell by the lack of differentiality in the lighting in the space and the laptop screen.

It's a simple matter of putting the camera on a tripod, taking the picture with the screen up (with a black or white or any single color background wallpaper) and then flipping the screen down and taking another photo. Then mask and photoshop the laptop background and composite the two photos and you're done. Weak sauce.

I applaud the others for their efforts to at least put the actual background in their computers. All the pictures in the last row are great. I think the last one with the low light orange lamp was pretty hard to compose.

"Whenever I see big blankies across a couch like that it makes me wonder if there is a skankie stain underneath."

I think it is to keep the dog fur off the sofa.

Such a nice day on the Embarcadero. I have just returned to the Bay Area and didn't know that food vendors set up shop on Thursdays and drew immense lines during lunch hour.

This will give me another excuse to get out of the office and linger a bit during lunch. Thank you.

This is very innovative. It is one of those solutions that seems that reveals how simple an answer can be it makes me wonder if this idea has not been prototyped before.

To the concerns of the stair's physical flimsiness and lack of self-locking safety features, these can be overcome with a few engineering tweaks.

So they added the island and didn't upgrade the overall quality of the kitchen?

That's easy. Just go buy it from the place that also sells oversize head busts of Jesus Christ and Mohammed for your garden.

Seriously, I don't understand why non-Buddhist practicioners think it's ok to put a religious icon in their backyard for aesthetic reasons

"And how is this supposed to help homeless people? If they had $24,500 they wouldn't be homeless!!!"

The idea I assume is to sell in bulk to municipalities for their social services programs.

Didn't GILT originate this business model/marketing approach? They've already created a home goods-specific area on their site.

This is the size of my brother's old place in the East Village. He liked it just fine and lived in the unit for three years.

Good. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks these rooms are not very good. They range from uninspired/bland to bad.

This picture is a GREAT example of good design.

There are so many pictures of rooms with great bones and hum-drum furniture and design...but THIS is a picture of a room with awful features and shows how great furniture, color selection, accessories and placement work to make a room comfortable.
