My Favorites from Jonathan Adler

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:

I have a thing for elephants (especially my little newspaper-covered guy you saw in this post). I think this brass elephant box would look so cute on a coffee table tray along with a few stacks of books. 

As I said, obsessed with my Muse Noir candle. So of course I’m loving this amazing Muse d’or gold-glazed version. Every room needs a touch of metallic!

I love studs. And I love that this box is white on white, rendered in a matte porcelain. Edgy + elegant + classic. I seriously love this so much – it’s simple, but not boring. Boxes like this are perfection for corralling ugly stuff like remotes. 

This is pink, which I think is a sufficient explanation for why I love it. A bubblegum candle? How cute is that (and well-priced!)

Again-every room benefits from metallic! This is just so dang pretty. A champagne candle – I love it. I can just imagine how fab it would smell!

Um, hi. This trivet is gorgeous. Agate with gold edging…just lovely, and neutral enough to fit into anyone’s decor. Every room needs some natural materials, like agate. 
How cool is this brass magnifying glass? It feels like something that would be in the library of a grand old English estate (like very Downton Abbey-ish or something). 

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.
