Simple and stylish design, that's what you get with these midcentury-style Harper table and floor lamps at John Lewis.
What are you thinking? Verner Panton's Panthella lamp? Or maybe the designer's Flowerpot lighting? The Ikea 365+ Brasa table, floor and ceiling lamps wouldn't look out of place sat next to either design.
But this is no Panton design, it's the work of A Nilsson, H Preutz and T Eliasson for Ikea and available in three colour options (red, black and white). The floor lamp is made of steel, with a pigmented powder coating, with a dimmer function and a plastic inner casing to prevent glare.
The pendant light is also made of steel, with a pigmented epoxy powder coating, while the table lamp has the same construction, again with that dimmer switch found on the floor version. You can see the table lamp over the page, with more details on the Ikea site. Prices are £90.89 for the floor light, with the ceiling light at £45.95 and table lamp selling for £60.26.
A great piece of 1970s design for not a lot of cash so far on eBay – this Dijkstra floor / table lamp.
Very much in that 'Guzzini' style, it's not quite a full-sized floor lamp at 114cm tall, but is probably something of an oversized table lamp too. Should work as either though. The lamp has a double-layered shade which gives off an orange glow when illuminated, with the height of the shade able to adjust on the chromed stem.
The lamp uses two bulbs and is said to be in 'very good condition', with no obvious damage, such as cracks or wear. Right now, it's at just 1 pence.
It's 50 years since Breakfast At Tiffany's first hit the big screen, so expect an awful lot of related product this year. Yes, more than usual – and that includes this John Lewis Audrey Hat Shade Table Lamp.
As you might have guessed, this affordable light has a pleated fabric shade, in the shape of a 'Holly Golightly' hat, the character played by Audrey Hepburn. Finishing things off is a chrome stand, combining to produce a modern light with a retro twist.
It's available for just £45. There's also a floor lamp version, which sells for an equally reasonable £90.
Various high street budget versions have been available for a number of years from the likes of John Lewis and Marks & Spencer, but there’s nothing like the real thing when it comes to the Arco floor lamp by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni for Flos. If you want the original, now is a good time to get one, as Achica has it in clearance.
Yes, this 1962 design, inspired by street lights and still an icon of the era, is now more affordable. Although you will need a large room to fit it in. As you would expect, the floor lamp has a white Carrara marble base and a telescopic arched stem of stainless steel (with a satin finish) for adjustable, directional light. A dimmer switch also offers up an ambient glow for mood lighting too.
That size? 232cm tall (between 7 and 8ft) and 220cm tall. Usually it sells for £1,429, but for the next two days, it’s yours for £999.
