“We believe minimalism is a bummer,” reads a sign on the wall in Jonathan Adler’s colorful Soho store full of bold, modern nature-inspired home décor and unflinchingly optimistic items like his coffee table book, My Prescription for Anti-Depressive Living. Eschewing minimalism to the max, Adler’s space is bursting with everything from beds and sofas to chandeliers and thick wool geometric patterned rugs. The bright, energetic theme carries over to countless accessories such as needlepoint pillows reading “happy”; sunburst mirrors; sheet sets in graphic cocoa-colored prints; dinnerware in brilliant colors; assorted animal statuettes; and tongue-in-cheek cookie jars labeled “Downers,” “Quaaludes,” and “Prozac.”
Adler continues to stock his distinctive ceramics in bright colors; the jade-glazed pottery is especially popular, as are the boldly patterned bedding and pillows.
