Inspired by acres of lush Virginia countryside, Barry Dixon is known for a distinct aesthetic that blends Western styles with global influences from a childhood spent abroad in India, Pakistan, Korea, New Caledonia and South Africa. With projects spanning the world, Dixon imagines interiors that infuse artifacts and antiques with present-day motifs – all preserving the history and personality of the home’s owners and their treasures.
His exclusive collections include furniture, lighting and accessories for Arteriors; showroom design and products for Fortuny; fabrics, trims and wallcoverings for Vervain; upholstery for Tomlinson; and The Naturals Color Collection by Barry Dixon for C2 Paint. In 2023, Dixon launched his 6th collection with Arteriors while also developing a new line of furniture and lighting with Iatesta Studio. Next year, Dixon will unveil a new, bespoke fabric and trim collection with Vervain.
Dixon’s work is featured regularly in design trade magazines, global social media accounts, Instagram Lives, reels, blogs and beyond. His projects are also featured in several books including Barry Dixon Interiors, Barry Dixon Inspirations, Farrow & Ball: The Art of Color, Fortuny Interiors and many others. Dixon is currently working on his third book and participating in an upcoming publication devoted to Gracie panels.
Dixon lives and works in his 1907 Edwardian estate, Elway Hall, located on nearly 300 acres of farmland in the heart of Fauquier County, Virginia’s horse country. His partner, Will Thomas of TTR Sotheby’s, and his precious wire fox terrier, Dinah, are his constant Elway companions.
