I’ve always been a huge fan of Jonathan Adler, mainly because I love a little quirk in interior design. I think we can all agree that nobody does quirk quite like JA! My Muse Noir candle (pictured above) is one of my favorite items, because it’s so eye-catching and unique. I’m a big fan of Jonathan Adler’s sense of fun and whimsy – I mean, what’s a room without a sense of humor or a little wink? I also love the materials that he chooses for his pieces. He uses lots of gorgeous, shiny brass, and my Muse Noir candle is rendered in ceramic. Ceramic feels to me like somewhat of an earthy and rustic material, which I think provides a great contrast to the modern eclecticism of the piece.
Jonathan Adler has tons of fun new arrivals for spring, as well as classics that I’ve known and loved for a while. Here are some of my favorite products that would add a little fun to any space:
Cool fact I recently learned about Jonathan Adler while perusing the site: he was actually a potter before he became the brand-name interior designer/maker of home goods that he is now. How cool is that? He was an artist first and foremost. His pottery pieces all still originate in his Soho studio, where he and his team design them and make the prototypes – love that. If you want to learn more about him, click here and scroll down to his “About” timeline – it’s seriously laugh out loud funny.
