It's impossible to escape the mid-century homewares trend at the moment. However, with original pieces becoming harder to find at reasonable prices and many reproductions being out of us mere mortals' budget, it's always a pleasent surprise to find items with a retro influence which don't break the bank.
This colourful Jolie table lamp from John Lewis is influenced by the iconic Italian design house Kartell, who were, of course, responsible for the famous Philippe Starck Ghost Chair. The clear glass base houses the feature colour flex cable which matches the barrel lampshade. A simple yet striking 60s-style design that doesn't cost the earth; now you just need somewhere to put it.
The Jolie table lamp, available in 7 colours, is a very reasonable £35 from John Lewis. See website for more details.
