Jed Johnson Home is a natural outgrowth of the renowned interior design firm Jed Johnson Associates. Johnson’s work was carried on by his twin brother, Jay. In 2006, to honor and perpetuate Jed’s legacy, he created Jed Johnson Home, which provides luxury textiles for interior use to designers and architects throughout the world. Originally only offered as custom creations to private clients, the collection has been available to the industry since 2007.
The hallmark of the line is its enduring quality. While the aesthetic is undoubtedly inspired by Jed Johnson, our goal is to design and produce a collection of high-quality textiles that are timeless in their design and unparalleled in their quality. We are proud that most of the fabrics in our collection are manufactured in the United States, while the remainder are woven at European mills that have been in existence for generations. The results are reflected in the finished products, with their superb construction and inviting hand. The collection contains enduring classic designs that are periodically updated with newer motifs to reflect contemporary tastes.
JAY JOHNSON TOM CASHIN & BLAKE HAASE
NYC with his twin, Jed, in 1967 from Sacramento, California, the brothers were quickly assimilated into Andy Warhol’s entourage. Jay became a professional model and, between assignments, devoted his time to supporting projects at Warhol’s Factory. Jay assumed control of Jed Johnson Associates following Jed’s death in 1996 and, within nine years, more than doubled the firm’s revenue. In 2005, Rizzoli published “Jed Johnson: Opulent Restraint,” a monograph and remembrance organized by Jay. In the same year, Jed Johnson Home was introduced. While JJA transformed into Arthur Dunnam for Jed Johnson Studio in 2016, Jay has continued to oversee Jed Johnson Home’s growth and development.
Tom Cashin is a former fashion model and Broadway performer. In 1990 he joined Sotheby’s auction house in New York, working in a variety of departments before becoming co-director of their Young Collectors Council. In 1997, Cashin joined Jed Johnson Associates and would remain there for nearly two decades until it’s closing in 2016. With a degree in Art History from Hunter College, he was also the director of the non-profit organization, Friends In Deed, from 1997-2012. He resides with Jay Johnson in New York City and Brookhaven Hamlet, Long Island.
After attending Bates College and the School of Visual Arts, Blake landed an internship at Sotheby’s New York. Through Tom Cashin, then co-director of Sotheby’s Young Collectors Council, he was brought into Jed Johnson Associates where, over nearly ten years, he learned the business and art of interior design. In 2005, he partnered with Buzz Kelly, a senior associate at JJA, to form Kelly’s eponymous design firm. In 2010, Blake joined the renowned fabric producer, Rogers and Goffigon, as their outside sales representative for NYC. After seven years with R&G, he reunited with Jay and Tom to oversee Jed Johnson Home as director of sales and operations.
