A firm believer in the never-ending cycle of creation and the creative process, Barry Dixon’s Arteriors collections combine fierce, but warmly-familiar elements from nature and history. Passive or aggressive. Offensive or defensive. As Dixon meticulously combs the world’s continuum of ornament and adornment, he draws inspiration from nature’s inspiring dichotomy of eloquent functionality, curating a modern collection of organic abstraction meant to protect the vulnerable and intimidate the threatening.

From whipping tails, armored plates, scales, and shells to antique brass, hammered iron, and smoked glass — irregular edges, ridges, and textures reflect a strong, protective beauty – adding a classic, but curious layer to any space.



“With an understanding of our aesthetic past and an eye to its future, we can design furniture that is truly timeless.”

Barry Dixon’s Tomlinson collection is a celebration of ‘curves and angles,’ a study of the interplay between the sensuality of organic, curvilinear twists and turns with the more stoic, calculated strength of bold geometric angles.

The edgy international style of architecture of the 1950s and 1960s inspire a modular series of chairs, sofas, chaises, and sectionals while a mix of 1930s and 1970s forms blend together for casual and comfortable 21st-century seating.
