finding a beautiful lamp in the recycle bin


No, not this delicious pair from lamp maestro Christopher Spitzmiller. That would be akin to winning the lottery. These fellas will set you back a cool $6490.00.   
But I'm getting ahead of myself. 
I get so many catalogs, and do not have the time to thumb thru most of them. Oftentimes I dump them straight into my recycle bin as I pass by with the day's mail. They never even make it into the house. That was the case the other day. I had just finished dropping a half dozen catalogs into the bin when something caught my eye...


The Home Decorators catalog was on top and had flopped open. I noticed it right away.  You can see it on the table to the right.




It looks very similar to many of my lamp fantasies.



Christopher Spitzmiller Large Single Gourd
$6130.00 pair



Christopher Spitzmiller Ginger Jar in Delft Blue
$6130.00 pair



Bunny Williams has a few contenders thru her BeeLine concern.





Marbelized 
Red / Black
$750.00 ea






Brush Stroke Lamp 
Blue / Brown
$950.00 ea






Splatter
Blue
$750.00 ea



I have not seen the Home Decorators lamp in person, however you can be most assured that it is no where near the quality of those above. But I'd be willing to bet that it would be a beautiful addition to many homes.

  1. Online they look great and a great show in but what I find is photos tend to be sooo good. When I browse Zara home I get so excited until I go to the store and it looks like I have been home decor catfished. Or whatever that term is when you get duped on online dating.

  4. Had an entire walk-in lamp closet in my other home. Feeling its absence deeply. Many are now in a garden shed awaiting their fate. Won't get interior decorator back for 2nd visit until to-do list is more complete, and then art & lamps will be placed.

    Happy to be in this pickle. Good excuse not to get any you show, they are all gorgeous.

  6. Beautiful lampshade bases! We design the actual lampshade prints and make them in our studio. I would love to collaborate with a lamp base designer!
