1999

The Kenzie Division

The Tanner Collection is followed by the creation of a more casual lamp company in 1999. The new division, Kenzie, is named for Mark’s daughter, Mackenzie. When a then nine-year-old wanted her name on something…like Tanner had. With the Kenzie division, Arteriors begins to focus on more transitional and fashion forward styling. To this day, Arteriors’ lighting divisions are still officially titled Tanner and Kenzie.

1995

Arteriors Introduces The Tanner Collection.

Named after Mark’s son Tanner, Arteriors introduces its first portable lighting venture.

“Arteriors never intended to be a lighting company, but our customers liked our accessories so much, they wanted to turn them into lamps,” says Mark when discussing the company’s first lighting endeavor. “So we did the obvious and started wiring our own lamps. We named that first lamp division after my son Tanner.”
