For an alternative to all the task lamps that have been dominating the high street recently but still with a classic look, take a look at the Otis lamp made by Nocturne.
Inspired by a lamp found in a second-hand shop, this lamp has a very Deco look with a gleaming shade made from spun aluminium and curved metal stand mounted onto reclaimed hardwood. It's sure to add a touch of class to any table.
The rest of Nocturne's small range is definitely worth a look too – it's inspired by 40s and 50s lamps.
Each lamp is made to order and costs £300.
