If you are a fan of Mario’s 1980s past or his present, you might appreciate this Nintendo NES Lamp.

That’s the appeal with this one. You might be a child of the 1980s (or 1990s) with a nostalgic love of the original Nintendo system and its famous plumber. Or you might just like the retro look of the lamp and see it as the perfect addition for a retro kids room. It works on both levels.

It works because this is a clever and unashamedly retro piece.

This is also an official Nintendo design, with a shade featuring the original incarnation of the Mario game, which is obviously a big draw on the nostalgia front. If you want more nostalgia, have a look at the base.

No, that isn’t an NES controller stuck near the bottom of it – IT IS the bottom of it. Not just for show, that original NES controller allows you to adjust the level of light as well as being the on/off control.

I love it and if you have a soft spot for the Italian plumber and/or Nintendo, you can pick this up online for £29.99 right now.
