Just Married bundle lamp from Dutch by Design

Contemporary hanging pendant lamp lighting

Simple, yet stylish lamp

It’s a bit unusual to find a lamp called ‘Just Married’, but this one gets its name for a very good reason!

This funky contemporary light basis its ironic design on the tin cans that are so often attached onto the back of a newly wed couple’s car, dangling and banging as they drive away.

Thankfully the light does look far more tasteful than an old tin can though, and is made up of seven white aluminium ‘tin cans’ suspended by red flex. The flex can be shortened to your required length.

The Just Married bundle lamp is available to purchase from Dutch by Design.

Small stacked base table lamp from Next

Stacked base style lamp

The stacked base style of lamps continues to be popular, but if you don’t have a huge budget available, you can still get the look without breaking the bank.

This small Beatrice lamp would be suitable for use on a table in the lounge or a bedside table.

It’s available in clear (neutral), which is perfect for going in any room, or a deep teal blue shade for a touch of dramatic colour.

The mini lamp is affordably priced at only £28 from Next.

Unusual turqouise floral stripe lampshade from Stem

Striking lampshade

Emma Armstrong, who runs Stem, specialises in making lampshades and produces some striking pieces.

This turqouise lampshade is a gorgeous colour and would look great used to add a touch of colour to a neutral or white room, or teamed with other turqouise pieces.

The outside of the lampshade is covered in a silvery fabric, with a large turquoise floral design, but what makes the lamp shade a bit more unusual is the addition of stripes of colour on the inside.

The turquoise flower and stripe lampshade is available in a variety of sizes and can be made to order. Prices start from £69 and the shade is available to purchase from Stem.

Tord Boontje Icarus lamp shade

Designer lamp light by Tord Boontje

Icarus lamp shade

Designer, Tord Boontje, is known for his unusual creations (like the decorative steel ivy panel we featured before) and this feathery lamp shade is no exception.

The creative Icarus lamp shade design features a tumbling swathe of overlapping feathers, that looks like the white wing of a swan. The shade measures 78cm in length and can accommodate light bulbs of up to 60 watts.

Not surprisingly, and as the name suggests, the inspiration behind the light comes from the tale of Icarus, who flew too close to the sun and lost his wings.  Although the idea of having a feather-like lamp shade may not appeal to everyone, it’s an effective design.

The Icarus lamp shade by Tord Boontje is sold by Dutch by Design and costs £75.

Habitat white ribbon table lamp reduced

Modern designer contemporary lamp

Distinctive design lamp

We love the design of this modern ribbon inspired metal table lamp – it’s bursting with fluid lines, interesting angles and a surface that reflects light wonderfully via its polished surfaces.

The lamp is made from coloured powder coated metal and the fluid, continuous design was developed using a single, continuous strip of paper as inspiration. The end result is highly effective and a great piece to add to any modern or contemporary room.

The white ribbon table lamp was £100, but is now reduced to £80 in the Habitat sale.

Glass table lamp

Glass table lamp

We love this elegant ombre table lamp, from Next.

The glass base is the eye-catching part of this lamp – it’s nicely shaped, but goes from a deep teal colour to a light blue. It’s accompanied by a faux silk teal shade, although you could replace this for a lighter colour if you wish.

The lagoon ombre table lamp is available from Next, where it’s priced at £35.

Felicity black and cream table lamp

Stylish monotone lamp

Stylish monotone lamp

It’s amazing how the base of a lamp can totally change its look. If this one was just a plain colour, it would probably be very easily missable, but the striking cream and black design draws the eye in immediately.

The cream base is made of ceramic and is decorated with a lovely black design, and it’s accompanied by a plain black faux linen drum-style lamp shade.

For a stylish lamp that will turn heads - for all the right reasons – and provide some essential light in a dark corner, then this Felicity table lamp is £65 from Very.
