I’ve been a fan of Jonathan Adler since I first saw his desk set when I was in high school. I had no business coveting a $30 set of pencils and stationery, but every time I passed it in the swanky bookstore, I prayed for a “70% reduced!” sticker. Alas, I think it’s against the Universe’s divine plan for Jonathan Adler to be on 70% sale, so my well-designed fantasy remains unfulfilled.
Coming upon these pottery vases from Adler’s Utopia collection made me feel that same pull. Considering I spotted my now-favorite Jonathan Adler candle in my local market the other day for thirty freaking dollars, I’m pretty excited that I found something permanent and prominent for less than $100.
Utopia Boy/Girl Vase, $28
The rest of the collection holds the same quirky-meets-modernist appeal and everything is this great, antiqued white – I am of the opinion that it goes with everything. I can picture all of these in various places around my pad… I love these hipster heads, but I’m extra-coveting this captain/sailor mug and this boy/girl mug!
