Table lamp loving

If there is one easy way to transform your space and give it an instant lift it’s with lighting. The often humble table lamp is a really easy way to take your space from drab to fab in an instant. Getting the lighting right in a room is so important, it will help create the perfect mood and bring a cosy ambience to the places you need it most.

There are so many beautiful options out there but table lamps seem to be something everyone finds hard to get right. I have to admit I often find l’m searching for a needle in a haystack when it comes to pretty lamps but lately I’m finding gorgeous sculptural lamps in abundance! So I’ve gathered some of my favourites here, so when you’re next in need of a lamp update you where to look first!

I’ve rounded up a selection in a range of price points so you can take your bedside table from dull to deluxe in a flash. There’s no wiring and no electrician, just find one you love and the perfect corner in your room and you’re done!
