Jamie Adler Keeps a Legend Alive in the West Hollywood Design District
Jamie Adler sweeps through her showroom dressed in a chic black-and-leopard-print ensemble that blends in perfectly with her luxurious design aesthetic. Hidden behind a display cube on Robertson Boulevard, the Phyllis Morris showcase takes up more than 10,000 square feet of prime real estate in West Hollywood and used to be the site of the original factory for the custom furnishings brand decades ago.
Past and present clients who have graced this opulent space since 1953 include Liberace, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Elvis, Elton John, Cher and, most recently, pop princes and star of The Voice Christina Aguilera via her interior designer Patrick Ediger. With everything from a “starter” $800 lamp to a $60,000 custom-made bed that can include not only a TV lift at the foot board of the intricately carved wooden four-poster bed frame but a mirrored canopy top, you will never look at a retail furniture catalog the same way again after a visit to this eye-popping, larger-than-life space. The illustrious mix of “one-of-a-kind pieces
for one-of-a-kind people” includes everything from sexy gold-hued PVC-tufted lounging sofas to a room engulfed with a 10 seat, 24-karat gold leaf Florentine dining table that would not look out of place in an Italian villa or Hearst Castle. Adler has even designed a gun safe for magician Chris Angel that was hidden in a nightstand, and she has a line of wallpaper in metallic patterns and colors of rich fossilized gemstones with local jewelry designer Kimberly McDonald.
