Midcentury design isn't the first thing you might associate with Ikea, but if you dig deep enough, you can find the odd gem lurking on the shelves, like the newly-introduced Vate table lamp range.

It's Ikea's take on the classic 1950s Akari table lamps by Isamu Noguchi, reissues of which sell for just under £160. The Ikea lights (which are in no way attributed directly with Noguchi) are much cheaper, offering up two designs (another pictured over the page), a handmade rice paper shade on a steel frame and of course, some ambient light for your table.

Prices start at £7.99.
