A few weeks ago when I visited the New York International Gift Fair, there was one booth that I knew I couldn’t miss: Jonathan Adler. Don’t you see the rays of sunlight pouring out of it and the angels singing overhead? Because I do.
Of course, everything he makes is gorg but I’m here to show you some of the newbies. First, let’s take a closer at those beautiful cubes. The detail is made by dropping oil on the lacquer as it’s being finished to create a marbelized look. And no, you don’t want to know the price.
Jonathan (wait, that feels weird since I don’t know him) Mr. Adler has added to his menagerie of animals with these new little friends: terriers (that will sell so well that JA can probably buy a new house next year with all the money he makes off of them!)…
…and a unicorn. Yes, people. A unicorn! How did he not have this before?
My favorite thing–hands down–was the new Maxime chair. She’s plush and comfy and damn, is she a looker or what? Those brass legs are short but they’re still so sexy!
Note: she’s as foxy going as she is coming. Va va voom!
If you don’t have the $2250 it’ll cost you for the shearling version of Maxime (Gah!), you can slum it with the equally gorgeous green velvet version for only $1750. It’s shown here with some stunning brass tables with shell insets that seriously make me gasp.
Destined to be a classic is the new Bond Lucite collection of tables in lucite and brass. Yes people, I said it – LUCITE and BRASS! There’s an etagere for $1995…
…a coffee table for $995 (shown below) plus a 2-tier table, also $995 (but not pictured).
Start saving your pennies, folks! (I must note that even though I joke about the staggering prices, I think JA’s wares are worth every penny and if had that $2250, then Maxime would be mine!)
Yup – that’s right. JC Penney. I know that sounds crazy now but you will be floored by all the amazing brands that’ll have stylish new collections at JCP come spring. It’s good, people. Real good.
