If there are two things that can describe designer Jonathan Adler ’s aesthetics, these are a healthy dose of eccentricity that seems to be inherent to his every project and his perennial love for pottery that has followed him long before he became a designer.

Jonathan Adler started his career as a potter and later on when Barneys acquired his collection of pots in 2003 he launched his first store in SoHo: from when he discovered his passion at 12 and while he attended the Rhode Island School of Design, pottery was always a fixed point of his style. Nowadays, with his own design company, a thriving e-commerce, and residential and commercial projects, and multiple stores Jonathan Adler is a symbol of the “Modern American glamour”.
The humor underlining every creation – he was the designer behind the Malibu Dream House project created for Barbie 50th birthday – and a passion for mid-century and pop culture recreate his signature whimsical style, in which layers and layers of different textures and tendencies coexist in the same flamboyantly colorful location.

“Being eccentric should be as important as being a good person. The golden rule should be “do unto others and be eccentric.”
Following rules is not a law he swears by, while a more chaotic set better reflects his philosophy: fresh and fashionable are the right adjective to describes the various projects he created through various collaboration with famous brands: from Mattel to Starbucks to interior design projects – residential and commercial ones – among which the Parker Palm Springs hotel’s redesigning stands out as one of Jonathan Adler’s most iconic creations.
With a collection of pottery, furniture, home collection, and complete interior design services, Jonathan Adler design company always strives to transform liveable and luxurious interiors into reality.
