Jay Jeffers & Arteriors Join Forces For a Third Collection
This time with an eye towards livable luxury.
They say the third time is the charm, and never has the phrase turned truer than in the case of Jay Jeffers’ latest collaboration with Arteriors. His third with the storied design company, this one in celebration of the brand’s 35th anniversary, the collection introduces 28 pieces to an already impressive catalogue of releases produced in the fruitful partnership. Now more than ever, the Northern California–based interior designer marries livability to luxury.
“I am constantly taking inspiration from new experiences and travels—I’m always evolving,” says Jeffers of the process behind the Spring ’22 collection. “I wanted to focus on new shapes and figures. Where my first collection used a lot of brushed brass, this one leans into antique brass, so everything looks soulful and lived in rather than brand new.”
That first collection with Arteriors, launched in 2015, saw Jeffers focused on entertaining. “From my first experience with Arteriors, I could tell their passion and entrepreneurial spirit was infectious, and I loved their focus on quality and innovation in materials,” Jeffers recalls. And the feeling is mutual. Steve Davis, Arteriors’ President and CEO, recalls, “The great thing about Jay is that he started out as a very good, longtime customer… then in 2013, a chance meeting in Cabo kicked off the beginning of a design collaboration that has continued to blossom for the better part of a decade.”
When asked what excites him most about Jeffers’ latest, Davis becomes reflective—he goes to the mirrors, that is. A wall mirror from the 2017 collection continues to sell particularly well, and Davis predicts, “the Trento and Torino mirrors from this new collection will also be instant bestsellers. The Torino, in particular, pairs an opaque surface with plain mirror.” Because the mirror can be hung with the opaque surface on either the left or the right, an especially enchanting effect can be found when two hang as a pair.
Of the intention behind his choice of texture, Jeffers explains, “This collection is comprised of etched glass, molded or hammered metal, antique brass, and blackened steel—all of which are designed to feel as though they’ve been collected over time.” The thoughtful wealth of materials is in keeping with Arteriors’ wider Spring ’22 launch. Davis says, “Jay’s collection offers several finishing details that carve out a unique place for themselves in our overall collection. From the perforated brass on the Tapio and Pavo families, to the Holm family that features a fluted metal detail in a sophisticated pewter.”
Launching today, March 1, the collection can be found here.
