Barry Dixon to Design Second Collection for Peyton Avrett
June 27, 2016,
CHARLESTON, S.C.—Interior designer Barry Dixon is collaborating for the second time with artisan blacksmith Peyton Avrett on a new series of light fixtures, a bench and a cabinet due out this fall.

Revolutions, a compilation of nine handcrafted pieces, reflects a sense of timelessness, space, and organic concepts as important pillars of design, featuring retro lines and organic silhouettes, smooth edges and imperfect geometry. Open metalwork in multiple finishes, milky globes and handblown glass also illustrate concepts of time and space.
“We imagined a collection that makes people think. We’re not only creating refined shapes that are pleasing to look at, but we’re hoping to evolve your senses and emotion through deliberately molded curves and detailed placement of light,” said Peyton Avrett, founder of his namesake company. “The creative synergy between me and Barry has been both successful and inspirational since our first collaboration. So, it was an easy decision to explore new ideas and pick up where we left off for collection number two.”
