Jonathan Adler is one of my favourite furniture shops, I love the modern American glamour that their stuff oozes and eclectic charm. There is also a surrealistic twist in his artwork that always brings a smile to your face. I love the fact that he doesn’t take his designs too seriously, has so much fun with them and is sometimes sooo naughty with a “99% classicism and 1% witticism” secret formula.
Whenever I go to the UK or Thailand I always make sure I buy back some something from Jonathan Adler because they don’t carry his stuff here in Singapore. I love his animal sculptures and was deciding between the dog and the walrus. I ended up buying the white dog at 60 Sloane Avenue for S$140 (60% off) when I spent Christmas in London and was happy that I got it! He is such a cutie. And I got the black dog in Bangkok at CentralWorld shopping mall for S$140 (60% off). He is gorgeous. I’m really upset that they are closing their Bangkok shop. I am obsessed with them and think they look fantastic at the entrance of my door. I have named them Michael and Jackson. Teddy is still quite weary of Michael and Jackson and never gets too close to them, but I am sure he will accept them eventually.
I also got the fabulous banana vase for S$80 (full price) from London. I love bananas and vases so what could be better than a banana vase? I just have to find the perfect flower for it- I think a sunflower would be ideal.
Definitely check out Jonathan Adler’s shop if you ever get the chance to, I’m sure that like me you’ll find it hard to leave empty-handed! x
