Whether new catalogs arrive via our physical or digital mailbox, there's no denying that flipping through them gives us a contact high (a sure sign we're in the right business). And the spring delivery from Jonathan Adler is no different: New designs, fresh looks, and plenty of shiny things fill up its glossy pages. Here's what we're loving this season:

Jonathan Adler popped up on his brand's Insta Story earlier this week flipping through the catalog, touting the new collection's "modern American glamour." We definitely agree: There are plenty of Art Deco throwbacks and nods to Old Hollywood, as well as touches of Bauhaus, Greek classicism, and a healthy helping of gold.

Some of our favorite pieces are the shiny and chic Nouvelle bar and credenza, with a nod to '70s supergraphics done up in glamorous metals. While it's been many decades since the fringed sofa's heyday, we think it's primed for a revival; we're digging the bullion addition to JA's classic Baxter. And how dreamy is the cloud shaped Ether settee? Ditto on the Maxime club chair, with its cool celadon velvet, channel tufting, and wavy brass frame with arrowhead feet.

While we always expect JA to deliver pieces that are lacquered, gilded, and upholstered to the gods, we're delighted to see a more natural twist with the Antwerp collection. Rendered in warm, limed mindi wood, we're particularly obsessed with the tall cabinet, covered in a "pattern of repeating circles... inspired by tiles JA created for his Shelter Island House, which were in turn inspired by an Eva Hesse drawing."

What's a new Jonathan Adler collection without bold color, patterns, and cheekiness? The accessories bring all of the above, from the lips linen napkins and pillows to pop art substances rendered in beads. For something a little more neutral, there's a ceramic hanging sculpture, Granny's Dangler, inspired by a Dutch work that hung in JA's grandmother's house.
