Just in case you hadn't noticed, I am getting really obsessed with lighting at the moment. The reason is that I think the UK has been poorly served and always marvel at the choice when I visit the US., Italy or France. I am trying to redress the balance and bring in some really wonderful, contemporary lamps. This week's new arrivals are incredible and very hard to describe. I think that they look quite Japanese in style - a touch of origami in the angles - and are quite the most stunning table lamps. The fabric shades look like little hats and are mounted on matt black, metal bases. The banded colours of grey/orange & blue/sand are extremely sophisticated and the size and shape make them a practical accessory for almost any room. I think that they would make very stylish bedside lamps or a focal point for the sitting room. I am purchasing the latter for my new desk in Hove as the blue will match the walls and the sand complement the polished brass. Gorgeous!
