Allen Jones (born 1 September 1937) is a British pop artist famous for his exhibition of erotic sculptures, like the set Chair, Table and Hat Stand (1969), each of which turns a woman into an item of furniture. Much of his work draws on the imagery of rubber fetishism and BDSM.

Jones was born in Southampton and from 1955 to 1961 studied at the Hornsey College of Art (London); from 1961 to 1963 he taught at Croydon College of Art.

Jones designed the film Maîtresse (dir. Barbet Schroeder, 1976).

The sculptures in the Korova Milk Bar from the film A Clockwork Orange were based on works by Jones.
