Jonathan Adler has spread his Happy Chic all the way to London
After a long day designing interiors for clients I knew exactly what I needed yesterday afternoon – some Happy Chic Jonathan Adler style. Thankfully we no longer need to visit the US as the first Adler store opened this week in London.
So off I headed in the direction of Sloane Square without actually knowing where the store was! I soon realised it wasn’t on Sloane Street but located on Sloane Avenue. Just across the road from Conran the old hand of the British design scene, the newcomer Jonathan Adler can be found spread over 2 floors. Previously the home of a rather pedestrian homewares chain the Adler store is a great addition to Sloane Avenue – and the London design world.
I visited the Atlanta store earlier this year so I was eager to see how the brand had translated to London. I can happily say I wasn’t disappointed – the plain shop facade hides some colourful delights and wonders inside.
The store consists of numerous room sets featuring different products. There are three main displays upstairs and a further four downstairs, plus lots of other displays all around the store. The shop is absolutely full of Happy Chic!
I loved the sitting area shown above. The geometric designs marry with the bright colours perfectly. A beautiful collection of accessories compliment the display.
The beautiful bed above can be found downstairs. The chandelier is a lovely touch, adding a very elegant aspect to the room set. The two parrot images are a whimsical feature. A bedroom is a private space so you should be as wild and wacky as you want to be when decorating this room.
If you want a new scent for home I recommend the Grapefruit scent in the Pop candle range. It was burning when I visited – making the store smell good enough to eat.
Jonathan Adler is a potter by trade and a wide variety of pots can be found in the store. Take your time to look closely at some of the designs – they are great fun but I am not sure how some will go down with Chelsea residents! The Georgia Cookie jar is rather ‘interesting’ – click here to see it online.
Don’t forget to read the manifesto when you visit. It was hidden behind a large floral display by the door when I was there but make sure you read it in full when you visit. Having seen in Atlanta I think the second statement and last one on the manifesto are my favourite.
If you love design and making new discoveries visit this store soon. Let me know if you found your own happy chic – I know I did!
