1987 must have been a great year for design. Nancy Epstein founded Artistic Tile in New
Jersey while Mark Moussa was simultaneously introducing his Dallas company, Arteriors.
Known for outstanding residential and commercial lighting, Arteriors is also a leading
manufacturer in decorative accessories and furniture. Pictured here, in this Mid-Century,
modern-style chandelier of fluted glass, triangular rods are embedded in a polished
nickel sphere and hang from a polished nickel pipe. Creating a brilliant reflection, the
bulbs are silver bowl globes. The Hanley Chandelier is a statement piece suspended over
a dining table or staircase and is also available in a brass finish. Patron will take a closer
look at Arteriors when they open their first showroom in the Design District on Dragon
Street late fall. arteriorshome.com – P

Founded in 1987, Artistic Tile opened a showroom in the Decorative Center
Dallas this summer to a gleeful design and architect fan base. It provides a
domestic, turnkey manufacturing process for mosaics, waterjet patterns and
cut-to-size projects, with a stone finishing line that can enhance the character
of their extensive inventory to specification. “We’ve opened in Dallas because
we felt it was time to bring our unique proprietary designs into one of the most
design-forward, sophisticated markets in the nation,” says Nancy Epstein,
Founder and CEO of Artistic Tile.
Offering in-house capabilities, the family-run enterprise ensures greater
client accessibility, significantly compressed lead times and the pride that
comes with producing products in the United States. “With much repetition
in the luxury tile world today, we’re confident that the Dallas consumer will be
relieved to find a new, world-class repository of trendsetting luxury in Artistic
Tile,” says Epstein.
From traditional to contemporary offerings, the Dallas showroom houses a
nonpareil collection of novel tile and stone, including intricate waterjet mosaics,
colored and mirrored glass, exotic carved stone, ultra-thin porcelains and classic
ceramics. SuAnne “Saz” Zachary, a native Texan with six-years of Artistic Tile
expertise, helms the showroom in the Decorative Center. This is the brand’s 9th
standalone showroom with 150-some dealers nationwide. “Dallas has become
one of the leading cities in the US for art and design, and that is what Artistic
Tile is all about,” Zachary enthuses. artistictile.com –P

For a family with three active boys, designer Tiffany McKinzie was tasked with
creating practical and durable, yet beautiful, interiors. With an arcade room, sports
court, billiard room and swimming pool, this Southlake family may play host to as
many as twenty kids on a Friday night.
Creating livable spaces is McKinzie’s specialty, and her go-to source is often
McGannon Showrooms where she finds trusted sales associate and designer Laure
Pierron. “McGannon has a very broad range of products and exceptional service—
quick estimates and helpful,” says McKinzie. “I also love Lee Industries,” she says of
the yellow wingback chairs in the living room. – P
