Bold and brass

Simple yet authentic, this stunning lamp will look beautiful in rustic spaces. We think it works best next to an armchair or at the end of a sofa to act as a reading light. It’s available with an antique brass or aged bronze finish, and has an adjustable shade which makes it perfect for use while you’re studying the newspaper or devouring your latest paperback. It’s an investment buy at £340, but we think the timeless nature of the design means you’re guaranteed to get your moneys worth.

If you’re looking for a floor lamp to take centre stage in your living room, this is a great pick. The matt gold will look classic in both colourful and neutral living rooms and the unusual design will immediately demand attention from your guests. It’s also available in black if you’d prefer a darker tone, and we think it’s a real bargain at £100.
