LUCITE DREAMING WITH JONATHAN ADLER

Happy-go lucky author, designer, and potter Jonathan Adler is  dedicated to bringing Modern American Glamour to your life. His namesake brand was launched after leaving his day job to pursue his first love: pottery. His quirky pottery collections remain a core feature of his business today, and his commitment to flawless craftsmanship and luxury is reflected across all of his home and lifestyle products.

We have been very excited at PAD this month with the arrival of some new stock from Adler's Spring/Summer 16 collection. Bold new colours in his striking hand-knitted Alpaca blankets, and some super cute porcelain wears for dining.

One of our favourite table wears at PAD, and one sure to be a hit with doggie lovers, are these adorable Hound Dogs salt & pepper shakers. An example of fabulous form and function, finished in a matt black and white glaze, this set is brimming with mod vibes and is perfect for dressing up a dull dining experience.

Adler's signature flair is also shown throughout his unusual collections of Lucite sculptures, non more so than this outstanding and super glam Lucite Chess Set. Inspired by Halston in the '70s it is perfect for a permanent display on a cocktail table. 

"From my close contact with artists and chess players I have come to the personal conclusion that while all artists are not chess players, all chess players are artists." Marcel Duchamp, 1952.

Indeed, no other game in history has been so widely reflected in art and literature and it remains an intriguing and complex subject for contemporary artists. With his own unique style Adler's Lucite chess set demonstrates that the game of chess has lost none of its inspirational power in providing an intriguing starting point for artistic expression, centuries after the game was invented.

"All that we see or seem, is but a dream within a dream." - Edgar Allan Poe.

This soft and luxurious Mongolian Lambs Wool Bench, which is described by Adler as 'jewellery for your home', is a wonderfully chic addition to any comfortable lounge or bedroom. Complimented with a light weight base crafted in clear Lucite, it gives the feeling of floating on a cloud, with the sensation of just drifting by. 

Adler has also transferred his trademark approach to the world of scented candles with a divine collection of glamorous and seductive products. For example, the Matte Platinum Muse D'Argent Candle is inspired by his iconic Muse pottery collection featuring the sculpted Muse design around the porcelain vessel, which is beautifully finished in a matt silver glaze, making it a perfect pot for a posse of pretty posies when the candle is gone! Also great for adding a little lustre to your life, we love the fragrance of this piece with spritely notes of pink grapefruit, French cassis and violet leaves. 

 

But that's not all! We have more new fragrances from the Adler Pop candle collections too, featuring vibrant hues, stunning scents, and gorgeous glass wear for your collection.

Why not pop along to PAD in Edinburgh and you'll find many more products to give you a feeling like you're free falling into a Tom Petty tune.
