Jan Showers




“A serene Grace Kelly in To Catch a Thief might have been Showers’ perfect client.“ -Rebecca Sherman, Papercity Magazine October 2000

Understated glamour, the combination of a variety of periods and styles, and the creation of comfortable, inviting rooms are the foundation of Jan Showers & Associates' style. Jan has been quoted as saying, "An element of glamour is always necessary in a room, whether it be silk, glass or books—what is more glamorous than being surrounded by books?"

I am in love with her use of sculptural table lamps, Venetian glass, books and of course, glorious mirrors.

That sky blue lamp just oozes liquid it is so fantastic! Doesn't it just look so ocean-esqe?

I love Jan Showers work- so feminine and glamorous! And I think most of us would agree with her comment about books!

Also, I am a big fan of the rug in the second photo- I think it may be by Stark??? Lots of designers use it; in fact, I think (hope I have this right) that Todd Romano started to use it when C.Z. Guest said it hid muddy paw prints.

Oh Michele I think the lamp is divine too! And Peak of Chic & Amy I agree the rug is fantastic. Being a dog owner, I love the idea of hiding hid muddy paw prints!
