(Dallas, TX) Fall 2015 – Arteriors, a leading provider of lighting, furniture and accessories to residential and commercial customers, will introduce its fourth collection with guest designer Barry Dixon at the Fall 2015 High Point Market (October 17-22).
This collection is inspired by nature’s dichotomy of function, elements meant to both protect and attack. Dixon also looked to 17th and 18th century armor and combined that influence with nature, taking inspiration from horns, talons, scales and nests. The 31 piece assortment of lighting, mirrors and furniture features a mixture of bronze, burned iron and brass mediums with irregular edges, ridges and textures to reflect a strong, protective beauty.
“This collection is a departure from what customers may expect from Dixon and Arteriors with a more gothic quality,” stated Arteriors Founder and Creative Director Mark Moussa. “The development process was exciting for us as this is a collection that really speaks to my own aesthetic as well as Barry’s.”
Dixon adds, “I was heavily influenced by the Savage Beauty exhibit of Alexander McQueen’s fashions. Similar to his designs, this collection shows the aggressive side of nature. This collection is a bit darker than my past three collections for Arteriors, yet still versatile combining many styles and eras for a beautiful product.”
Arteriors will debut the collection in its showroom at the International Home Furnishings Center #H320 during High Point Market. The Barry Dixon Collection will also be available to order on arteriorshome.com beginning October 17th.
