Calling all Upper West Siders: no longer any need to travel to Soho, the village or the Upper East Side to pay a visit to Jonathan Adler.

The master of the retro-modern has opened a new location on the Upper West Side at Columbus Ave. and 74th Street with a full inventory of whimsical giftables, from a water pitcher shaped like a sperm whale to a menagerie of tree ornaments to a throw featuring Richard Nixon.

This from the man whose manifesto dictates "we believe in rustic modernism: Big Sur, A-Frame beach houses, raw beams, and geodesic dome homes." Also, "we believe in carbohydrates and to hell with the puffy consequences."

Sold.
