Jonathan Adler's Design Advice
Jonathan Adler Ipanema Pendant Lamp, $1,650
Splurge On A Chandelier
"Get a chandelier that’s bigger than you think you need, more expensive than you think you can afford, and put it on a dimmer. With a dimmer you’ll ensure everyone in the house looks even younger and more beautiful than they are."
Jonathan Adler Pill Carafe, $48; Brass Fly Box, $248; Santorini Electra Table Lamp
Bedside Table Must-Haves
"A lamp on a dimmer, a carafe for water, and a chic little box to hold Advil and perhaps something a little stronger. I love my brass fly box because it has two compartments for this very reason."
Jonathan Adler Flat Weave Rug, $595
Tip To Add Color To A Room
"Add a bright patterned rug – you won’t look back."
Smythson Leather Travel Frame, $280; Tumi Continental Carry-On, $545
"We just launched a line of luggage with Tumi and, call me old school, the first thing I put in my new suitcase was a travel picture frame with a photo of my hubby Simon in it."
Jonathan Adler Lucite Butterfly Obelish, $495
Favorite Decorative Accessory
"Obelisks. They’re essential in any chic home. Whatever the style, a good obelisk adds much needed height and oomph to any tablescape."
Jonathan Adler Brass Tic Tac Toe Set, $195
Best Hostess Gift
"Nobody needs another boring bottle of wine. I like to give a game like our brass Tic Tac Toe set. It’s something the hosts can use long after the housewarming soiree is over. Plus if conversation at the party lags everyone can play and unleash their competitive spirit."
Jonathan Adler (PRODUCT) RED Special Edition Tomato Pop Candle, $38
Favorite Scented Candle
"I just might be biased, but Jonathan Adler candles are my favorite. Our Tomato scent reminds me of spending summer afternoons with my grandfather in his garden."
