Jonathan Adler’s sphere of influence doesn’t stop at his international empire of boutiques. Adler’s big-name collaborations range from Lacoste to Kohler, Tumi to TOMS, Formica to Fisher-Price. Now, his debut collection of roller shades for the Shade Store embraces his signature retro motifs—from ’50s Italian mod to ’60s flower power—in six patterns (all available in both blackout and light-filtering) and 14 total colorways. “They’re bold,” Adler admits, “but, depending on how they’re used, can come across very versatile, tailored, and polished. I could see the bright clementine on windows looking out onto a lush Sandy Springs backyard, and the Vionnet pattern in maize would add fresh, mod appeal to a Midtown apartment.” The modern maestro’s ultimate advice? “Life’s too short to look back and see an endless haze of beige.” Custom pricing, theshadestore.com
