How thrilled were members of the design contingent upon hearing that they no longer had to jet to New York, Miami or Los Angeles in search of a Jonathan Adler boutique? They were so enthused that the shop-gossip rumor mills, decorating blogs and Twitter feeds gushed over the news for months preceding the opening of the new Dallas store. Sir Adler’s glossy new digs, perfectly positioned in the Knox-Henderson neighborhood, is mere steps from some of the brightest in dining, fashion and decorating. Inside, the premier Texas boutique screams Jonathan Adler: White-pottery pieces galore, colorfully patterned pillows and poufs, witty decorating objets, and clever table toppers — from lacquer trays in Adler’s signature vivid hues to coasters boasting his lovable cartoon drawings. Of course, the new store is fully furnished with dozens of covetable pieces in Adler’s mid-century-meets-modern-day style. For groovy digs with a swinging-’60s bent, look to Adler’s pyramid-shaped Claude étagère in walnut and nickel, the burled-wood and Lucite Bond desk and the neoclassical modern Templeton sofa in smooth, charcoal velveteen. One can only hope that with a new Dallas store, plenty of visits from Adler and his adorable, style-making hubby, Simon Doonan, will follow. 4525 McKinney Ave.; jonathanadler.com.
