Just browsing the current Ikea range and noticed this design, which reminded us of something. After a bit of thinking, we realised what it was – the Ikea Stockholm floor lamp almost certainly takes inspiration from the classic Arne Jacobsen AJ floor lamp, which recently celebrated its 50th anniversary.
The similarities are obvious – the circular base, skinny angled stem and the conical head. Of course, the original has a little more panache about it, as well as more detail, but the Ikea version gets the look for a whole lot less.
Available in three finishes (black, white and nickel-plated), the Ikea lamp is made of aluminium and steel, standing 140cm high and using LEDs, which means 80 per cent less energy and lasting 25 times longer than an incandescent bulb. Price? £86.81.
