On My Radar: Christopher Spitzmiller for Visual Comfort & Co.

Beloved for his hand-crafted lamps, potter extraordinaire, Christopher Spitzmiller is expanding his reach with an exciting new collection for Visual Comfort & Co. Since opening the doors to his studio in 1996, Spitzmiller has designed lamps which have achieved icon status, thanks to their beautiful, hand-thrown quality and their exquisite glazes and colors. Spitzmiller lamps are beloved by just about every top interior designer in the country. We love them at Paloma Contreras Design, but because they are essentially works of art, they don’t always work for the budget on every project.

Spitzmiller’s partnership with Visual Comfort will make his beautiful lamps accessible to a much broader audience. Visual Comfort is the top lighting manufacturer in the industry, known for its unparalleled level of design and beautiful finishes and details, so the partnership is a natural match. In regard to how the Visual Comfort collection will differ from his original one, Spitzmiller says “This line is more modern and contemporary that what we regularly produce though there is a strong aesthetic connection between the two lines. Our clients will have more options with different styles and finishes that are available at a more approachable price point than I am able to offer for pieces produced at my New York City studio.”
