Charles Hollis Jones (b. 1945) is an American artist and furniture designer who is recognized by the Smithsonian Institution for his pioneering use of acrylic and lucite. Born in Bloomington, Indiana in 1945, Jones moved to Los Angeles, California at the age of 16 and founded CHJ Designs. At the time, acrylic and plastic were not commonly used as a material for upscale furiture and art, but Jones, seeing its potential, began creating unique pieces for some of the city’s most renowned showrooms, such as Hudson-Rissman.
