Jonathan Alder is known for incorporating perky and vibrant colors into his design objects. In fact his design is so versatile and the spectrum is so broad that you can easily find any style to your liking: ranging from mid-century modern, to Hollywood Regency, to French Romantics, etc.
Though his portfolio is so comprehensive, you can almost always spot his design from a mile away. Take this picture below for example: Chippendale Bamboo Chairs in Lime/Chartreuse, Black Herringbone Rug, Turquoise Drapes and Vase...do I really need to go on here? It screams "Jonathan Adler" in every aspect.
With my growing interest in this designer, I picked up these two books "Jonathan Adler on Happy Chic Colors" and "Jonathan Adler on Happy Chic Accessorizing".
I also summarized a few of my favorite Jonathan Adler items in the following picture:
- How many times have we seen HGTV designers like Sarah Richardson used the Giraffe lamp in nurseries?
- How many Whittier or Capri-lamp lookalikes have you come across at HomeSense?
- How about the Black and White Ikea Stockholm Rand Rug?
- And need I remind you the Tripod Bamboo lamp I scored for a mere $115 from HomeSense?
