Jonathan Adler

I believe that Jonathan Adler, the New Jersey farm boy who sculpts sexy bottles, designs groovy graphic pillows, and fabricates frisky and fancy sofas, is instrumental in building your über-divine nest.

It's hard not to get excited about Mr. Adler's home pieces when you read the note card on his Lampert Sofa that instructs you to envision yourself "reclining with a remote" or "perching with a cocktail". Evoking a sense of cheer, the Lampert Sofa in icy blue ($2,300) is an essential piece of home décor. It exemplifies one of Mr. Adler's many manifestos: "we believe that your home should make you happy", with which I couldn't agree more.

San Francisco is lucky to finally have a Jonathan Adler store, and the location housing his largest furniture collection, no less. -- Grace Chen
