NBS reveals Fur + Furniture 2018 Calendar

Our first ever Fur + Furniture Calendar contest was pawsitvely pawesome!

This past June, NBS kicked off our casting call for pet photos, engaging with the Architecture and Design (A&D) community in Metro Detroit. From firm visits, to ice cream truck stops, we promoted our Fur + Furniture calendar contest and received over 80 photo submissions! Our three outside judges had the difficult task of selecting the top 26 pets, who got the chance to be professionally photographed by Purple Tree Photography in our Troy showroom.

The two-day photoshoot included an array of human and pet treats, and a collection box for the Michigan Humane Society. From the generosity of our participating A&D friends, we filled boxes with much needed items including food, toys, towels and treats. Our vendor sponsors selected furniture, textiles or floorcovering to create the unique settings for each calendar month. These beautiful vignettes were the perfect backgrounds for our pet models.

Our judges once again had the tough job of choosing the lucky 14 pets out of those photographed to be featured in our printed calendar. To “unleash” the selected pets, we hosted a calendar reveal party on October 17th in our Troy showroom. The night included delicious food, drinks and a charity raffle benefitting the Michigan Humane Society of Detroit. NBS matched all raffle ticket sales and in addition to calendar sales, we raised over $1,000 for this amazing organization!

We had a blast putting on this event, connecting with our A&D friends, their pets, families and friends. We look forward to hosting this event in the future! Be sure to follow us on social media to see which pets are featured each month!
