Charles Hollis Jones, Pair of Glass, Lucite, and Steel étagères, USA, c. 1970s

This elegant pair of lucite, glass and steel étagères were designed and produced by Charles Hollis Jones in the 1970’s. The combination of lucite and steel gives the étagères a delicate tension. Jones was one of the first to treat acrylic as a unique material and apply it distinctly to modern designs. His innovative approach to furniture allowed him to transform acrylic’s medium from slick to chic.

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.  Jones’ work attracted the attention of some of the twentieth century’s most important architects, designers, and decorators from the very start.  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 furniture and art, but Jones, seeing its potential, began creating unique pieces for some of the city’s most renowned showrooms, such as Hudson-Rissman.
