The Reform Credenzais inspired by the Brutalist architecture of modernist temples and churches from Le Corbusier’s Ronchamp to Miami’s Temple Israel to the Cathedral of Brasìlia. The signature pattern originated as a relief texture sculpted in the Soho pottery studio. The interior designer carved onto wooden doors and then clad in a single sheet of brass, which is hand-hammered and polished to create this piece. The labour-intensive process takes eight to twelve hours per door.
Jonathan Adler‘s Talitha Collection is crafted from nickel-plated metal with hand-stamped patterns applied to minimalist, modernist forms. The surface is reminiscent of silver leaf—it emits that same lustrous glow—but is wonderfully durable. This piece is the perfect complement to any modern living room. Generous scale and solid presence, but light and elegant. The geometric stud pattern is sure to add some rock ‘n’ roll attitude to your contemporary design.
Inspired by Jonathan Adler‘s trip to Jim Thompson’s legendary house in Bangkok, our Siam Credenza captures the jewel-toned exoticism of old Siam. Deeply hued and divinely glamorous, the Siam Credenza is what you’d dream of inheriting if your eccentric great aunt had been besties with Tony Duquette, ideal for any luxury home.
Jonathan Adler‘s Harlequin Collection features glass panes back-painted with early-morning inspired shades in angular forms. A little Italian Modern, a lot of irresistible colors. Imagine kaleidoscope hues turned down with the glamour turned up. The ivory case is tipped with brass edging, adorned with super-modern grooved hardware, and perched on our futuristic interpretation of a hairpin leg.
Minimalist forms meet Maximalist glamour. Antiqued mirror with a polished brass base. Two double-door compartments open to reveal a bright robin’s egg blue interior fitted with two adjustable shelves. Quatrefoil handles and escutcheons add a decorative flourish to the simple form. Use Jonathan Adler‘s reflective Delphine Credenza as a sideboard in your dining room, place it behind your sofa as a chic console, or give your foyer the gift of glamour.
