Jonathan Adler

Jonathan Adler has a few design rules: follow your heart, wear white after labor day, have a fuck it attitude. His rules have served him well. He started as a potter, then got interested in textiles and lighting. It wasn't long before his artistic fingerprints were on restaurants, and hotels, and homes, featuring his gorgeous throw pillows and chandeliers. His mission is to bring modern American glamour to everyone's life, everywhere. He's opened more than 30 stores bearing his name and he's written books on practically every aspect of design. And in case you're wondering, he does in deed wear white all year long.

On this episode Debbie talks to Jonathan Adler about how his pottery defined his aesthetic. “It’s about craft and luxury mixed with a sense of optimism and cheekyness.”
