After a two-and-a-half-year search and an eight-month renovation, the long-awaited Arteriors showroom is now open in the Design District. The 5,000-square-foot space, once home to John Gregory Studios, was given a complete overhaul. The Arteriors team added a rooftop deck and raised the ceilings to 13 feet to properly display their 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. A dedicated shade section (and on-hand shading expert) allows customers to upgrade existing lamps with toppers in a variety of sizes, shapes, and materials.
But while lighting is Arteriors’ bread and butter, the new store, which is open to the public, also features loads of furniture and accessories. “Arteriors is from the floor up and the ceiling down,” says founder Mark Moussa. The showroom boasts more than 1,100 products in all, which represents more than 90 percent of their inventory—something no other Arteriors showroom can claim. Look for new products and partner lines, including the Twig collection, a collaboration with Dallas artist George Sellers inspired by faux-bois benches Moussa purchased in Paris.
