Chicken and Bee Keeper
With a passion for art and a desire to start his own business, Christopher Spitzmiller graduated from St. Lawrence University and continued his fine arts study at the Rhode Island School of Design and at Central St. Martins College of Art in London. Following his dream he setup shop in an old school near Washington D.C. and worked as a summer artist in residence for Mecox Gardens in Southampton. His artistic skills soon became widely apparent, attracting commissions from Albert Hadley, Richard Keith Langham and Suzanne Rheinstein.
In the fall of 1999, after outgrowing his Washington space, Christopher moved his studio to New York City. A decision he calls, “one of the most important turning points in my life.” Each of his lamps beholds a timeless appeal and luxurious quality. Perched atop gilt bases and outfitted with jewel-like hardware, Christopher’s works have a high-fashion sophistication. No more than 60 lamps are created each month-a couture-quality pace that ensures one-of-a-kind lights with timeless appeal.
Unique, classically formed and vibrant make Christopher Spitzmiller lamps as appealing as the man behind the name.
