the most helpful design staff in the biz...

maison21 thought he would spend the morning clearing out the horrors of his neglected in-box atop his work area. his staff had another agenda. guess who won.

What a nice and furry staff you have.

I love the painting on the wall!

maison21 said...

yeah, inspire, i think my staff if pretty great too. not so good at detail oriented tasks, but they sure boost company morale! (and they work cheap, too).

thanks for the compliment on the painting- it's an m21 original! (with of course, a serious debt to the prints of richard serra)

Brilliant Asylum said...

Lol. I came home from work to find all of my flower arrangements knocked over by my "staff".

Haute Decor said...

Its uncanny my assistants are almost as helpful!!

Love the Serra-esque artwork. Chic.

asylum-

so been there! i have to remember to put flowers out of reach, or not only will my assistant knock them over, sometimes he eats them (leading to a google search for "plants poisonous to cats")!

haute decor-

well, i'm glad i'm not the only one with such a highly trained and dependable design staff! thanks for the props on the m21 "homage a serra" art!

Hey, a cat always has the priorities straight...don't argue! :p

Habitually Chic said...

I wish I had a staff! I keep thinking that if I ever go out on my own and start working from home, I might have to adopt someone to keep me company!

Honestly, I think Richard is pissed, and thus boycotting, because he is not included in that cute picture you now have at the top right of the blog. You guys probably told him you were going out to buy Mona a bone, and he feels stupid for believing you! Hence his sitting down on the job!

suzy- he IS cute- and maddening. i removed him from the box, so i could start to sort the crap inside, and placed him on a nearby chair to resume his nap. of course he proceeded to climb right back up to his rightful perch. repeated one more time before i gave up and took the photo. the funny thing is- he NEVER sleeps in there- just this once...

murali- i didn't he won! see above!

chic- i HIGHLY recommend having staff- adopting mona (and richard, but she was first) is by far and away the best, most gratifying and life-changing decision i've ever made. i literally don't know how i survived without them before!

smitty- well, if he is angry about the photo, he has only himself to blame! we tried to encourage complete staff participation in the sidebar photo, but richard thought it was more important to pursue a nap under the coffee table that morning...
