Jonathan Adler (54) is a potter, interior decorator, author, and entrepreneur. Adler launched his first ceramic collection in 1993 at Barneys New York. Five years later, he expanded into home furnishings, opening his first namesake boutique in Soho, Manhattan. He now has 17 stores and runs an eponymous home interiors business. Adler is openly gay and is married to fashion designer and writer Simon Doonan.
Quote: “I’ve had a million setbacks along the way — from kiln fires burning down buildings to shipping disasters — that should have put me out of business, or at least left me lying in the fetal position on my bed for a few days. Luckily, though, I’ve never for one second thought that I had any other option than to just keep going.”
