Potter, designer, and mischief master Jonathan Adler likes to fill his New York City home, which he shares with husband Simon Doonan (they married in 2008), with items are that are utilitarian, stylish, and most of all, fun. So it makes perfect sense that he’s also the brain behind Amazon’s impossibly chic Now House by Jonathan Adler line.

And so when it comes to furnishing your own love nest via an Amazon registry, Adler says you should follow your heart and go for the things that you just can’t imagine living without. “Ultimately, a registry is an opportunity for the people you love to get you the things you love,” Adler says. And if he were doing it again today, here are the home picks he’d register for, each of which sashays between form and function. There’s color, there’s personality, and most importantly, he’s obsessed with every single one of them.
