Lamp Lighter

If you are a frequent reader of The Potted Boxwood, then you are most likely familiar with the name of one of my favorite lamp makers, Christopher Spitzmiller. While there are many things I have to research when I post a picture, I never have to look twice once spotting a Spitzmiller lamp in a room. They are distinctive, stunning, and have the phenomenal effect of tying a room together. They can be a fresh pop of color or seamlessly blend with the setting. Either way, the beautifully handmade ceramic lamps are made with painstaking detail and pride-worthy craftsmanship.

There is a reason why top interior designers incorporate them in their rooms, why magazines always note his work, and why they are consistently timeless in their worth and appeal. They may not be in an everyday budget, but they will last a lifetime. For more info on Christopher Spitzmiller lamps, visit his website.

Here are just a handful of photos with his gorgeous lamps. I promise, you will begin to notice his work (if you don’t already)!
