Santa & Cole 1970s Cometa hanging lamp

Cometa

It might look like a DIY project, but the Santa & Cole Cometa hanging lamp is a piece of high-end 70s design.

It actually dates back to 1975 – Charles Dillon did originally make it as a home project for his wife Jane, the light being refined for commercial use. For your money, you get a white kite-like cloth shade that hangs from a ceiling, with a hidden aluminium cone operating as a reflector and a red cable holding the on/off switch.

Just tell your visitors it’s an art installation, they’re sure to be impressed. Yours for £293.
