Want something a little different for your sideboard or desk? This Louis Kalff for Philips desk lamp might fit the bill.

Dating back to the 1950s, it's a design reminiscent of that optimistic era, but with a touch of modernism thrown in for good measure. The lampshade is made of sheet metal lacquered black, while the stem is essentially a brass rod. The base is made of cast iron with a sheet metal cover lacquered black and with the original switch still in place.

Coming up to 60 years old, so not in perfect condition – age-related scratches and marks are on the black lacquer work. But at just £10.50 right now, it doesn't look like a huge issue.
