Last week when we shared our new look dining room and kitchen with you, you may have also noticed a new little addition to the room.
We have light!
It may sound weird to get so excited about having a new lamp, but having not had proper light in the room for a while, makes you really appreciate the ease of just flicking a switch and instantly being able to see what you’re doing!
We’ve always loved the classic Anglepoise lamp, but at around £2000 for the giant version, it’s just way out of budget. This beauty on the other hand is the Brooklyn giant floor lamp from Made.com (it’s also available in silver and black) and at only £99 an absolute bargain.
The base is really heavy, so the lamp stays really stable even when adjusting it and it is perfect lighting for cuddling up on the sofa and reading a book or writing our next blog posts.
Unlike the classic Anglepoise where you can swivel the head in all directions, on this lamp you can only swivel up and down. Whilst it would be great to be able to swivel it all around, it’s really not a major issue and considering it’s about £1900 cheaper than its counterpart, it’s definitely a feature that we’re happy to skip.
With all of the building work and most of our budget always being spent on really unexciting jobs like plastering, plumbing and roofing, it’s really to be able to treat ourselves to something fun and pretty for a change.
Do you love our new lamp as much as we do? Have you treated yourself to anything pretty lately?
*We weren’t compensated for this review, we just truly love this lamp! On the rare occasions that we do share a product review we always post our honest opinions.
