I’m a big fan of Jonathan Adler. He is maybe not as well-known in the UK as in the States but that is about to change very soon believe me. There is now a store in London, in Sloane Avenue and there are more in the pipeline. Plus you can buy online.
Visiting the Jonathan Adler empire in New York last March as part of BlogTour NYC was one of the highlights of the trip for me. Jonathan was a gracious host; he was warm, genuine, chatty and funny. His design aesthetic is for bright and colourful mid-century style and the Shelter Island retreat he has created with his husband Simon Doonan is no exception.
You can read the story behind the retreat over on Architectural Digest.
And here’s a few of my own snaps taken in March.
A relaxed Jonathan chats in his office where on the other side of the room is his desk/ping-pong table.
Fascinating to watch the man at work, pink crocs an all!
Just a couple of glimpses of the colourful and fun Adler products.
Maybe next time we’ll get an invite to the Shelter Island Retreat?!
