SPOTTED: Christopher Boots.

Yesterday we discussed how statement lighting can create big impact in your home.  Today we want to share with you our love for an Australian creative who's bespoke lighting designs are described by him to be "jewellery for the home". 

Let me introduce you to Christopher Boots. A Melbourne based industrial designer who creates handmade architectural lighting, adapting his love for nature and light to produce understated luxury lighting. Sounds amazing right? Boots creates masterpieces which encompass all the characteristics a good statement light should be: BIG in size and innovative design & style.  I love his fusion of materials including: borosilicate glass, brass, copper, bronze and crystal quartz. My favourite below, the Prometheus Light, is sculptured from copper and crystal quartz.

Boots' designs are all handmade in Melbourne by a team of artisans including glass-blowers, coppersmiths, ceramicists, sculptors, and bronze casters. His designs are beautiful and captivating to the beholder.  They effortlessly elevate simple shapes into 3D artworks.

To create simple and uncomplicated designs is difficult and yet Boots achieves this like a dream. To introduce a statement piece like this into your home would require not much else in your space. Follow its' trend - keep it minimal, clean and clutter-free and let the light sculpture take centre stage.
