Peek into Jonathan Adler's NYC Office

Hope you all had a great 4th!! Mine was a blast, even though we didn't see fireworks...

Anyhow, last week I was invited to the Jonathan Adler's office here in NYC & finally met the man himself. I remember how much of an inspiration he was for me when I first started my business....  I've always been attracted to his design aesthetic & even have his Meurice lamp in my apartment, it's even lovelier in person by the way! The place was huge - with an entire showroom & all employees were allowed to bring their little doggies to work, how cute!


On another note, Jonathan recently finished a collaboration with Pepsi on these cute red, white & blue biodegradable straws... you can actually see them in this post! They ended up giving me a pack, which I used for my 4th of July dinner party. I'll post those pics soon too! 


Are you a fan of Mr. Adler's work? Do you own any of his stuff?

    Ack! You are so lucky! I love Jonathan Adler. I have his nelson lamp and want to get some of his figurines, they are just too fab. He is such an inspiration and now that I see his employees get to bring their dogs to work I love him even more!

  26. Oh wow! It's my dream to meet The King of Colour!

    I too loved the manifesto, and was shocked to read he'd never won any awards for his designs - crazy or what?!

    I think there's something missing in his store though - your paintings;)

    Thanks so much for sharing!
