Prippy Gift Guide... Jonathan Adler

Jonathan Adler is most certainly a Prippy of Influence... but he also makes perfect gifts for just about any lucky duck on your list.

I've already picked up a copy of Happy Chic Color for one of my favorite ladies and it is fantastic! The book is filled with awesome recs on paint colors, combos, and accessories. Such a fun read!

An embroidered pillow would be a dream... as would these nifty dominos.

Oh... and he went to my rival prep school in Wilmington, Delaware!

Love JA... there's a store just down the street from me. I'm dying for an embroidered pillow too but I refuse to pay the price tag. I love doing needlepoint so maybe one day I'll make my own!

Prippy Handbook said...

Oh I know your pain... his West Village shop was super close to my old apartment and I was often tempted (and sometimes treated) by his amazing taste!

I wish I knew how to do needlepoint... maybe a skill for me to learn know that the harsh weather is here.

A guy who rents pottery studio space the same time I do was a used to employ the services of a laywer who was JA's father. If that makes sense. Small world.

I forgot to mention when I first posted that he went to my rival prep school growing up!

Any way for me to feel connected to this man is amazing!

Whitney - thanks for stopping by!

... Jonathan Adler had a line for the Home Shopping Network (HSN!). Now, although I've never purchased from HSN, I am always amazed by their fab partnerships with J.A. and Kenneth Jay Lane. Perhaps it is worth checking out!
