Designer Spotlight: Jonathan Adler

I've already featured some fabulous designs by the lovable Jonathan Adler, so I figure it's about time I gave him a proper introduction on the site. Lately, he's best-known as the judge with the flamboyant neckties on Bravo's Top Design, but Adler has been a bold presence in the design world since 1994, when he sold his first batch of pottery to Barneys.

Adler soon expanded beyond ceramics into an array of assorted homewares — including lamps, furniture, rugs, and quirky accent pieces. His goods are sold online and at eight boutiques nationwide.

To get an idea for what Adler is all about, look no further than the brand's bold manifesto, which includes such dicta as "We believe that your home should make you happy," "minimalism is a bummer," and "colors can't clash." You can also see some of my favorite Adler designs by clicking on the photos below.

He has some really nice items, to pricey though.

Casa, how do you go about bookmarking items from his site? I've tried a few times in the past to pick some of his pieces as casa cravings only to fail miserably. Does the flash on his site prevent bookmarking or am I (unsurprisingly) just not web-savvy enough?
