Lighting is to a room what great basics are to your wardrobe. Get it wrong and the whole room can fall flat, get it right and you’ve instantly injected structure, polish and layers into your space. And before you go rewiring the house, you can create depth and mood into a tired room with some simple table lamps. The humble lamp is having a bit of a moment right now, from boho raffia to chintzy pleats and art-inspired designs, scroll our edit of the best guaranteed to update your abode.
We particularly love lamps that fall on the smaller side which can fit daintily into the smallest of spaces but create maximum impact. Downsize your bedside lamp to gain extra storage space for books, hand cream, etc; or fill a small space on the bookshelf to create a charming little reading nook.

There are so many brands doing this look well right now.
First up, Fermoie. The British brand was founded by the Farrow & Ball team, who launched it to create a stunning range of fine textiles that would pair perfectly with the parent company’s iconic paint colours. The range is now vast, from cushions to lighting, and we love the gathered linen shades for adding some personality to a room.
Fermoie is quite literally the Farrow & Ball of soft furnishings having been founded by the iconic paint company. Their beautiful gathered linen lampshades pair perfectly with the brand's much-loved wall colours.
Similarly, Pooky is the lighting company on everyone’s lips at the moment. Think vibrant prints paired against clashing architectural bases. We love their newly-launched rechargable lamps that can be placed anywhere you don’t want to see unsightly cables, from a kitchen counter to the coffee table and even in an outdoor seating area.
