Marks and Spencer Anglepoise-style oversized floor lamp


Some time ago, we featured the original Giant Anglepoise lamp back in 2007, selling for an equally hefty £1,660. we've also seen something similar from B&Q with the Tecton lamp, for a more affordable £79. Now there's something shiny from Marks and Spencer in a similar vein – the Oversized Task Floor Lamp.

It's actually got a more modernist feel, both in construction and with that nickel plated steel finish, with the lamp also offering up a round base, adustable stand and a height of around 166cm, which is just short of 6ft tall.

Check out more images on the M&S site, with the price at £125.

Original BTC vintage-style Task floor lamp


We have featured a few Original BTC lights in the past, but the Task floor lamp is up there with the best of them. Quite literally.

Standing tall at 130cm high and designed (like all in the range) by Peter Bowles, this classic light has a spun aluminium head, chromed steel base and black satin finish, while the functionality allows you to adjust the direction of the light to pretty much anywhere.

Classic looks, very useful – what's not to like? If you want one, they sell for £320 online. Or if you want something similar, but smaller, there's also a Task table lamp.
