about us

John Hall Nelson, Jr. grew up in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. One of three children, Nelson grew up in a classical French style home surrounded by fine antiques, art, and collectibles. His mother, Phyllis Rogers, recalls her son always drawing and being creative, and sometimes trying to rearrange furniture in the living room. He was inspired by the work of interior decorator Joe McKinnon, most notable a project for his father, Dr. John Hall Nelson. Carefully watching Mr. McKinnon’s use of color, the young Nelson understood that his surrounding and decoration inspired him. He knew from an early age that he either wanted to be an architect or a designer. Nelson received his Bachelor’s Degree in Interior Design and Business Marking from the University of Alabama, and he began decorating while still in college. When not in the design studio on campus, Nelson worked as an apprentice for prominent local decorators. To compliment his interior firm and further his endeavors into the decorative arts, in 2001 Mr. Nelson opened J Nelson, Inc., a design showroom located in DCOTA, Design Center of the Americas in Dania Beach, Florida aptly between Palm Beach and Miami. A premier location for textiles, lighting, and accessories catering to the country’s leading architects and interior designers, J Nelson, Inc. celebrated its 12th anniversary in 2013 with a fete for over 300 guest co-hosted by Mr. Nelson and his friend and fellow designer Mrs. Ann Getty.
