Jonathan Adler to Speak at New York International Carpet Show: Designer to Share Journey from Production Potter to Lifestyle Brand

West Hollywood, CA (May 25, 2016) – Before opening 30 stores around the world and designing everything from lighting to furniture to sunglasses, Jonathan Adler was first a pottery-obsessed artisan with an improbable dream to do what he loves.

This September, Jonathan will share his journey as a craftsperson from a production potter to a purveyor of everything you need to add Modern American Glamour to your home. Hear the challenges he faced, his learnings, and his lessons for other makers.

“There’s a beautiful narrative behind skilled craftsmanship that often goes untold in the luxury market,” stated Murtaza Ahmadi, president of New York International Carpet Show. “Jonathan Adler is an inspiring example of what can happen when we truly value impeccable handcrafted process. We need to tell more of these stories to protect the sustainability of handmade goods in an economy that rewards massification. This year, NYICS will amplify the voices of people behind the craft.”

New York International Carpet Show will host Jonathan Adler on Monday, September 12th at the historic Terminal Warehouse (also known as the Waterfront or the Tunnel) located at 271 11th Avenue in Chelsea.
