“We look back to see our way forward…and we look outside to find what we need inside.”
Barry Dixon is known as one of the most prolific names in design. A master of drama, he creates spaces that are classic yet curious, an approach that’s infused in his latest collection for Arteriors.
While a childhood spent abroad introduced Barry to eastern mysticism, a visit to China: Through the Looking Glass at The Metropolitan Museum of Art reignited his sense of wonder. Barry devoured old films and revisited his travels to recapture the essence of the Orient. He then paired these themes with his natural world to explore how opulence and adornment interact with forms in nature. From antique brass foliage to gold-leafed thorns, each detail unfolds to reveal a world of gothic glamour that provokes the senses.
