Barneys New York’s pop-up space at Chelsea Passage has been turned over to Lisa Perry, Madeline Weinreb and Dransfield & Ross, among others. For the next two months, it’s dedicated to Arteriors, the luxury, designer-driven lighting and furniture resource founded by Mark Moussa in 1987 and with stores in L.A.’s La Cienega Design District and the Dallas Design District.
Arteriors x Barneys offers distinctive products for sophisticated urban customers who crave a well-appointed home without the pretense of formality. Furniture is priced from $500 to $20,000, and accessories, $60 to $2,200.
Many Arteriors products are designed to be conversation pieces, such as the circular Rupert bar cart, which harks back to a time when pre-dinner cocktails were de rigueur, $549. Other attention-grabbers include the Fleetwood lamp, which looks like it’s wearing a variegated hood, $229; Naomi accent table with a sculptural base, $1,599, and Hugo ottoman in black-and-white cow hide, $429.
“I try to create products with a visual push and pull by combining finishes, forms and fabrics in provocative and compelling ways,” Moussa said. “Many of our pieces are one of kind. Arteriors have been building a reputation as a resource for designers worldwide for nearly 30 years. The opportunity to collaborate with a creative powerhouse such as Barneys marks the next step in our continued evolution.”
Chelsea Passage was founded in the late Seventies by Phyllis Pressman, the wife of founder Barney’s son in a passageway that connected the downtown the men’s and women’s stores.
