PRINCETON PUBLIC LIBRARY HOSTS DESIGNER JONATHAN ADLER FEB. 9, 2011

Jonathan Adler’s interior designs seem to be everywhere. >From television to the Internet, to stores bearing his name all over the country, the witty New Jersey native has popularized his unique brand of decor. Adler will visit the Princeton Public Library on Feb. 9 at 4 p.m. to sign copies of his latest book and talk about his life, career, and style.
 
The New-Jersey-born interior designer, whose company Jonathan Adler Design creates pottery, fabric, furniture, and more, has appeared numerous times on Bravo TV. A potter by trade, Adler sold his first designs to Barneys New York in 1993 and opened his first retail store in Manhattan in 1998. His company has since expanded to include eleven retail stores nationwide, a thriving e-commerce site, and a wholesale business boasting over 1,000 locations worldwide.
 
Adhering to the company motto "If your heirs won't fight over it, we won't make it," Adler has developed a unique style that mixes modernist forms with bold colors and graphics. Offerings include decorative objects, tabletop collections, bath accessories, bedding, candles, furniture, rugs, pillows, and lighting. Also included in his company’s “manifesto” are these statements:  “We believe our lamps will make you look younger and thinner,” and “We believe handcrafted tchotchkes are life-enhancing.”
 
 
All Princeton Public Library programs are free and open to the public. If programs require registration, preference is given to library cardholders. The physically challenged should contact the library at (609) 924-9529 48 hours before any program with questions about special accommodations.
