Launched in 1987 with a focus on beautiful, handcrafted accessories in classic materials, Arteriors has evolved into a global leader in artisan lighting, furniture, wall decor and decorative accessories.
‘It all starts with the product,’ says Arteriors founder and creative director Mark Moussa, when describing the essence of the company he founded nearly 30 years ago.
Moussa attributes much of the inspiration behind the company’s more than 1,200 active designs to his worldwide travel and natural curiosity. As he treks the globe, Moussa is constantly looking for ideas and inspiration, while identifying new resources and emerging trends. Whether he is watching a fashion show or simply embracing his environment, Mark is always hunting for ways to keep the company’s designs fresh and new.
Arteriors seeks sources that embrace traditional craftsmanship because Moussa believes that human touch makes products truly artful and unique. These artisans have the same level of reverence to their craft – many of them passing down their methods and practices from generation to generation.
Whether it’s a glass lamp being hand-etched or gold leaf being hand-applied to a metal frame, the skills that it takes to make these Arteriors pieces is impressive.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, seeing Arteriors’ offerings in person is worth a million. No matter how inspiring an Instagram post is, or how well a product is photographed for the catalog, images don’t always do the items justice. ‘Seeing Arteriors’ product in person is the best way to experience the finishes, textures, scale and incredible attention to detail that goes into each piece.’
Take the opportunity to shop one of our trade-only showrooms, one of the many retailers that carries Arteriors or see our window at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour to see the scale and detail in person.
