Arteriors announced this week that it is expanding its guest collaboration program to include three new design partners over the next two years, with partnerships in development with Celerie Kemble, Frank Ponterio and Ray Booth.
The collaborations will follow the brand’s legacy of product development partnerships with designers that began in 2010 with designer Laura Kirar and has continued with current collaborations with Barry Dixon, Windsor Smith and Jay Jeffers.
“When we created our guest collaboration program, we were inspired by the creative energy of the interior design community and sought to work together with the people who we admired to bring their creativity and product ideas to our broader customer base,” said Arteriors Founder and Creative Director Mark Moussa. “Each of our guest designer partners brings a unique perspective to our product assortment and we cherish the relationships that we have developed and the collaborative process of working together to bring these original ideas to life.”
Each guest collaboration debuts at High Point Market, with product in-stock to fulfill orders immediately. Collaborators will each debut their collections at the following High Point markets:
- April 2018: Arteriors will debut an assortment of lighting and accessories developed with Celerie Kemble, the Palm Beach, FL native who helms the New York branch of family design firm Kemble Interiors.
- October 2018: Arteriors will unveil its third collection with L.A.-based designer Windsor Smith.
- April 2019: Arteriors will debut a collection developed with Frank Ponterio, founding principal of Frank Ponterio Interior Design in Chicago.
- October 2019: Arteriors will launch a comprehensive collection of lighting, accessories and accent items designed by Ray Booth, partner at McAlpine with offices in New York City and Nashville.
From concept to launch, each of these collaborations is a two-and-a-half-year development process. The process includes multiple rounds of review of inspiration drawings, samples, materials and prototypes between Arteriors and each guest designer, until a fully realized collection is ready for market.
In addition to traditional designer collections, Arteriors is also working with the design community through its Designer Interpretations program, which calls upon tastemakers in the design community to create curated vignettes using the full range of Arteriors product in Arteriors showrooms across the country and internationally.
“The professional design community has so much incredible talent that we would love to recognize but developing a collection with everyone who inspires us isn’t possible, so we developed our Designer Interpretations program as a tool to allow our showrooms to recognize some of the great talent in their own customer base and community,” Moussa said.
