Yesterday, we got a sneak peek of the long-awaited Arteriors showroom that opens to the public tomorrow in the Design District. Over the past eight months, the Arteriors team has been giving the 5,000-square-foot space on Dragon Street, once home to John Gregory Studios, a complete facelift. “We looked for this space for 2.5 years,” said Arteriors founder and creative director Mark Moussa, who raised the ceilings to an airy 13 feet to allow for plenty of height to show off their stunning collection of chandeliers and pendants.
In addition to hanging fixtures, the store is packed with the contemporary floor lamps, table lamps, and wall sconces the Dallas-based company is known for. There’s also a dedicated shade area in the back of the store, a great resource for customers looking to update lamps they already own. There’s even a shading expert on hand to help you select just the right size, shape, and material.
But while lighting is Arteriors’ bread and butter, the new store also features loads of furniture and accessories—more than 1,100 products in all, which represents more than 90 percent of their inventory. No other Arteriors showroom in the nation can boast that. A rooftop deck that was added in construction serves as the perfect display space for the new Twig collection, a collaboration with Dallas artist George Sellers inspired by faux-bois benches Moussa purchased in Paris.
