Jonathan Adler


Jonathan Adler is an iconic potter, designer, and author from the US. We sell his Pots in Surf, Limitless in Marine Blue and Limitless in Linden Green cushions.

His designs are witty, bold and full of personality - you wouldn't put "bland" or "beige" in the same sentence as Jonathan Adler. There is something about his use of scale, texture, colour, pattern, and symmentry that creates rooms that are really interesting and pleasing to the eye. See images of his own bold and beautiful homes below.

Adler launched his first ceramic collection in 1994 at Barneys New York. Five years later he expanded into home furnishings, opening his first boutique in Manhattan. Although he is still committed to ceramic design (see some of his quirky creations below), Adler has grown far beyond the potter’s wheel to become an internationally recognised designer of bedlinen, cushions, furniture, rugs, and lighting, and even handbags.

Jonathan’s has various sources of inspiration. Mid-century modern and global pop culture combine to create the signature Adler aesthetic. Although there's a real sense of fun in his designs, Adler is committed to impeccable craftmanship and luxury, reflected in the motto “If your heirs won’t fight over it, we won’t make it,”

Jonathan is also the author of four books: My Prescription for Anti-Depressive Living and the Happy Chic book series Jonathan Adler on Happy Chic Colors and Jonathan Adler on Happy Chic Accessories. Jonathan’s latest book in the series 100 Ways to Happy Chic Your Life, was published in November 2012.

He lives in New York City with his partner Simon Doonan who is the Barneys Creative Ambassador.
