Adler's inspirations have come from Mid-century modern, art and global pop culture combine to create the signature Adler aesthetic. This wonderful design brand prides itself on its ability to combine a serious design philosophy with a colorful sense of optimism. The guiding motto, "If your heirs won't fight over it, we won't make it," reflects Jonathan's commitment to craftsmanship and irreverent luxury.
In addition to designing furniture and product, Adler has collaborated with many notable brands. In 2004, Adler redesigned the Parker Palm Springs hotel. In 2009, Mattel asked him to design the modern-glam interiors for the “real” Barbie™ Dream House as part of Barbie’s 50th anniversary. He designed Starbucks 2010 (RED)™ card and mug which directly benefits The Global Fund, and most recently Adler was selected as Lacoste’s 6th Annual Collectors series artist, debuting Holiday 2011.
Adler is the author of three books, My Prescription for Anti-Depressive Living as part of the 'Happy Chic Book' series, Jonathan Adler on Happy Chic Colors and Jonathan Adler on Happy Chic Accessories. Jonathan’s third book in the series, 100 Ways to Happy Chic Your Life is just out. We anticipate a stop in Jonathan's book tour to Talisman Collection sometime in the near future. Exciting! We love him!
