Editor’s Picks: 10 Favorite Artisanal Lighting Fixtures
There is something to be said about a handcrafted light that has been molded and formed with the utmost care and precision. Knowing that every piece, down to the nuts and bolts, has been carefully hand-placed to create a fixture that will withstand the test of trends and time.
The handmade process also results in each piece being slightly different from the next, which adds to the individuality and uniqueness of every piece. It is that care and hand-craftsmanship that set artisanal lighting fixtures apart. Here are ten of our favorite artisanal lamps made by skilled craftsmen from all around the world.
