Illuminate that Surface

Light up your work space, add something of interest to a table or give a dull surface stylish illumination – whatever your reason, desk and table lamps are a helpful and smart addition to most spaces. Not only do they offer you functional light, they are an opportunity to punctuate a space. Moreover, the light they give can be the very thing that 'fills' a space with a welcoming glow and we all know how critical that is to making a space feel complete. Here are five of our favourite lamps to come out lately:

1. gold shade

Go for gold with this theatre-inspired table lamp from Illuminati. Its minimalist design makes it a smart space-saver, while its adjustable shade and base make a truly useful lamp for your desk. illuminati Price on request at

2. iron fist
