Arteriors’ Mark Moussa discusses 30 years of design inspiration and his first UK showroom

Mark Moussa founded Arteriors – a luxury US lighting, furniture and accessories brand – in 1987. 30 years on, Moussa boasts a portfolio of internationally-inspired designs and a newly-opened UK showroom in the Design Centre Chelsea Harbour, London.

What was the motivation behind Arteriors’ UK launch?

“When we decided to expand our footprint overseas, London was a natural fit. Not only is it an epicentre for culture and design, it also has a unique and eclectic spirit that aligns with our brand DNA.”

How has your personal aesthetic evolved throughout your career?

“In my early years, I definitely leaned toward more traditional references. Since then, my passion for travel has introduced me to fabulous art, culture and fashion that has expanded my point of view.”

 How has your personal style evolution influenced Arteriors’ direction?

“Through my travels, I have been fortunate to meet and develop longstanding relationships with talented designers and artisans from around the world. This has allowed Arteriors access to work with a myriad of talent and materials, and to create a unique collection of products, from modern classics to statement- making pieces.”

What is unique about Arteriors and what sets it apart from the competition?

“The interplay between material, scale and finish drives our design process. We keep things fresh and current by creating inspired designs that revel in the details. From raw edges and etched glass to exposed wood grains, we infuse each piece with thoughtful design details that feel bespoke.”
