Liz Lange, a New Yorker fashion designer considered a retailing pioneer, founded the first fashion-forward maternity brand for women with the launch of Liz Lange Maternity in 1997. Jonathan Adler (born August 11, 1966 in New Jersey) is an American potter, designer, and author.
As Lange says about that long-ago moment when she met Adler: “I wish the story were more interesting, but frankly it’s not. A mutual friend brought Jonathan when he came to visit me in my dorm room. The rest is history.” Join Miami Design Agenda to discover all about it!
In early 2019 they started this amazing project, and created a bright, colorful home away from home! A place where comfort and relax rules… Powered by the memories of childhood, Lange chose an early-1900s Spanish Colonial, stucco walls, tile roof, ample pink bougainvillea on the Intra¬coastal Waterway.
To decorate it, Lange didn’t hesitate on what she wanted and who her partner in crime should be! As she says: “Pinks and greens; blues and whites; trellis wallpapers; lots of lacquer; wicker, bamboo, and rattan; palm trees, palm leaves, animals. A surreal fantasy where nothing bad could ever happen. And nobody gets that better than Jonathan.”
“We’re such old besties that I know exactly who she is, and she knows exactly who I am,” Adler agrees. “Pulling this place together involved the two of us hanging out as we usually do,” she adds. “It was so much fun just to have an excuse to go shopping,” he muses.
Most of the items of decoration were tracked down by them while going through many of the Palm Beach vintage stores (where they found most of the wicker, bamboo, and rattan). All this to result in, as Adler says, “a mirror of who Liz is: bold, glamorous, colorful, and conﬁdent. Think Liz Lange meets the essence of Palm Beach meets explosion of lemon sorbet of the soul.”
