So this is the object of my desire today – George Nelson’s Saucer hanging lamp. It’s a design classic, and is part of the permanent collection at MOMA, but *sigh* I can’t afford it. Also I’d need two to hang in our lounge so I definitely can’t stretch to that right now!
So I’m on the hunt for some gorgeous midcentury inspired ceiling lighting which won’t cost me a fortune. And that’s hard! But there are some out there which I’ve pinned to my pinterest board.
First up, Habitat. Renowned for using old designs to ‘inspire’ their products, I’m drawn to this concertina light (below right).
John Lewis is always a great place to look for homeware, and their Harvey Shade looks really sixties – and it’s only £45. I’m also very tempted by the Grayson Reach Floor Lamp. It’s a tad pricier but I think it looks classy and cool.
Believe it or not this shade is actually from BHS. Not somewhere I’d usually shop but this shade is a very close copy of a midcentury original. And it’s a bargain!
And finally that fantastic store, Made.com. I love their stuff. The cage pendant, below left, also comes in copper and I am very tempted – it’s more than I want to spend but two of those in the lounge could look really cool.
Any other lights out there I’ve missed that I could add to my Pinterest board?
