Jonathan Adler’s U Village Store Opening

This is not the Seattle JA store, but I suspect ours will look very similar and just as awesome

It’s happening! Friday, June 14, the new Jonathan Adler store in University Village is opening, bringing with it an enthusiastic burst of color, style and feel-good design.

This is the 25th boutique for the New York-based Adler, who wowed the interior design world with his quirky pottery goods in the mid-nineties, launching his first ceramic line at Barneys in 1994.

Since then, he has expanded his empire into lighting, furniture, linens, fashion (bags, scarves, wallets, a new men’s neckwear collection) and even JC Penny.

The Seattle store will encompass 2,100 square feet, including the largest selection of lighting of any other of his locations and will have a “gift bar,” which I think might be mean a spot to pick up quick gifts rather than complimentary cocktails. Other perks: complimentary in-home consultations, design-your-own custom goods and a custom upholstery program.

Check out the new spot—across from Boom Noodle and next to Kid’s Club—and get a dose of Adler’s famed anti-depressant design.
