Some time back we featured the 50s-style Hip Haven Modwire lighting. In a similar style (well in shape anyway) and much cheaper are these retro faux suede table lamps.
The design is probably more 60s than 50s, with a shade of faux suede with "punched" pattern and in a choice of colours. There’s also a chrome base, with control just a matter of touching it.
And best of all, they’re cheap – you can pick one up for £14.99, with free delivery.
