Trendsetter Barry Dixon

The designer’s latest collection unites Asian motifs and the natural world

Trendsetter Barry Dixon A 2015 Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibit, “China: Through the Looking Glass,” inspired Barry Dixon’s evocative new collection for Arteriors. And as it turns out, Elway Hall, his estate in Warrenton, Virginia, further informed his creative vision. The 25-piece line of lighting, mirrors, furniture, and accessories are embellished with thorns and other organic shapes, juxtaposed with dragon talons, scepters, and motifs found on imperial Chinese garments.

“I was heavily influenced by iconic actress Anna May Wong and film noir as well as the forces of wildlife I observe on my farm,” Dixon explains. “The spikey elements in this collection reference the sharp nails of the powerful dragon lady, as well as the thorns and vines that overtake fallen logs and tree trunks. Softer finishes and elements like the lotus flower balance the collection to yield a new, dynamic aesthetic.”

Dixon’s distinctive style—showcased in his two popular books—infuses a Western sensibility with global influences. “I believe the greatest quality a home might possess is that of innate, soulful hospitality,” he says. This is the designer’s fourth collection for Arteriors, available at arteriorshome.com.
