Jonathan Adler Side Table

Adler-TableI was browsing Jonathan Adler’s website the other day and decided to read his manifesto and man, hes got chutzpah. You have to admire a designer who promises that his lamps will make you look thinner and encourages collecting tchotchkes for life enhancement. I cant say I agree with all his declarations, but I couldn’t agree more with his overarching principle your home should make you happy. This new Lantern Side Table is a subdued piece for Adler (punchy patterns and bright colors is his usual signature) but this design is just enough to make you smile. The high gloss, the full curves, the pure white—it makes you want to run your hands over it. And once you start groping the furniture, you might just have to buy it.
