Jonas traces its roots in America to Samuel Langer. After learning his craft at leading Austrian ateliers, Langer immigrated to the US from Austria in the 1920's. He worked with some of the top artisans of the day including Joseph Hoffman.
Ronald Jonas, Langer’s nephew, learned his craft at Langer's atelier. Eventually he established his own atelier, Ronald Jonas Interiors, in NYC. There he continued his uncle's traditional approach and art of making fine upholstered furniture and curtains, achieving an exemplary reputation for workmanship in his own right.
