You may have heard that Obama redecorated the Oval Office. While it doesn't look all that different than it did in past administrations (a neutral color palette seems to be a must), there is one very exciting new feature: The table lamps!
Why, you ask, am I so excited about the table lamps? Well, my dear friend has worked for lamp designer Christopher Spitzmiller for several years and knew that some lamps had been sent to the White House for possible inclusion in the room. When the photos of the newly redesigned Oval Office came out, there they were! As she wrote to me in an email, "[I am] so excited that I have touched something that Obama looks at every day!" I am so excited for her and for Chris. What an honor!
