You know that show Top Design? No, not Top Chef, or Model, or Baker, aka the person responsible for America having so few models. Anyway, Jonathan Adler, the lead judge from the Bravo design show, has just opened his eponymous home miscellany store, where the motto is: "If your heirs won't fight over it, we won't make it". Some of the stuff's actually useful while you're still alive, like when you...
Want the feeling of an exotic animal under your slothful feet: Armed with solid wood legs, this ottoman's handmade pure wool needlepoint strongly resembles an E-Type Jaguar; also, the sides are as soft as velvet, because they are velvet.
Are tired of your father-in-law pointing his finger at the government for all his problems when everyone knows he's a gambling addict: Put this porcelain Uncle Sam hand on your dining room table, right in front of his face.
Want furniture that's at once less Addison, more Addison, and all you: Choose from dozens of wood & fabric options for the Addison chair, with choices from "Malaga Peacock" to "Basket Ice", something Slider would've yelled like 400 times if Top Gun'd gone with hoops instead of volleyball.
Love art, but hate nails: The Bristol Floor Easel supports your art and highlights it with 60 watts of thought-provoking illumination.
Also love gambling, but hate dice: Have you ever seen a nicer dreidel than this nickel-accented masterpiece? Neither has your father-in-law -- time to make some designs on his money.
