Toilet paper gets fabulously trendy, thanks to design guru Jonathan Adler.

How do you make toilet paper trendy? Was that a daunting task?It was! My goal is to design the world and I feel like everything can be better. I thought, “What a great way to take something so everyday and make it better.” I wanted to take some of the patterns from my high-end collection that are probably out of a lot of people’s price range and put them on products that are super-duper-affordable and accessible to everyone.
 What’s the best way to display toilet paper?Proudly! They’re individual covers but they look awful nifty in a stack. I have a whole wall of them, so it looks very groovy and graphic and conceptual.


Challenge for today: “take something so everyday and make it better”
