Charles Hollis Jones

American, 1945
Charles Hollis Jones is best known for his pioneering designs in acrylic and lucite. Born in Bloomington, Indiana in 1945, Jones moved to Los Angeles at the age of 16 and established his own firm, CHJ Designs. Jones’ sleek forms and use of unorthodox materials earned him commissions from a number of high-profile names, including Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball, Johnny Carson, and Tennessee Williams. Jones’ most recognized designs include the Wisteria chair (designed for Williams) and the Edison lamp. Jones lives in Los Angeles and continues to design furniture and decorative accessories.
