Are you a fan of typography and fonts?
Typography designs feature in a range of decor, homeware and home accessories, but we particularly like the look of this fab ampersand lamp.
The table lamp is made from powder coated white gloss and it has a striking red braided cable with a transparent switch. It would work well used as a light in various rooms – we can imagine it used on a desk, as a bedside lamp or in a living room, for example.
The ampersand table lamp is designed by Goodwin + Goodwin and available to buy for £124.95.
They also produce lots of other typography inspired products, so we recommend a browse of their store.

Elegant pendant lamp
Simple but impressive, this Aquarius pendant lamp draws on the influences of the traditional Japanese origami style lights.
Although the folds on this light are less dramatic than other pendant designs, the effect is equally pleasing and the end result is an elegant pendant lamp that will work in any small to moderately sized room.
It’s very affordable too, as it’s currently reduced to £49 from Fashion For Home.

Filament light bulb
Who knew light bulbs could be so lovely?
This hand crafted carbon filament light bulb offers a modern take on a traditional 1930s style bulb, with lovely loops of filament inside creating a unique glow of light.
You won’t want to hide this bulb under a great big lampshade – either use it without one so that it’s entirely visible, or pair it with a shade that will allow you to see the filament effect.
The quad loop carbon filament light bulb is available for £18 from Mimime on Bouf. There’s a special offer on at the moment – if you buy 3, you can get 1 free!
