If ever there was a book that hits close to home for me, this is it! Mr. Waffles Loves Design by Lisa S. Roberts brings together my two favorite things — design and cats, specifically a handsome black Hauspanther named Mr. Waffles! You may know the author from her TV series “My Design Life” or her other books Antiques of the Future and DesignPop. Well, Lisa and her husband have a very large collection of design objects and their cat, Mr. Waffles, enjoys them all immensely, inspiring this lovely little book that every Hauspanther fan should own.

Showcasing amazing examples of furniture, housewares and even toys, each entry gives you a little design lesson accompanied by sassy commentary from Mr. Waffles.
