Dating back to the 1920s, Jonas is an upholstery and curtains firm based in New York City founded by Samuel Langer, an Austrian émigré who had worked with artisans such as Josef Hoffmann. Jonas is dedicated to artfully made, handcrafted custom upholstery and curtains that are the definition of exquisite quality, classic beauty and originality, and its clientele included Jackie Kennedy and Albert Hadley by the mid-century. Three generations later, Jonas is currently run by Langer’s great-nephew, Steven Jonas, and continues to be committed to maintaining traditional old-world manufacturing standards and methods of the 19th century. Today, the Manhattan workroom still creates furniture entirely by hand, using traditional techniques designing pieces to last a lifetime.
