Buying a Tom Dixon Lamp.

Buying a Tom Dixon Lamp.

Tom Dixon Table and Desk Lamps.

Tom Dixon A name linked for many decades with truly unique and wonderful items of furniture, interior design and of course lighting. Tom Dixon was a self-taught designer; he started making one-off pieces of furniture in a motor garage welding workshop owned by his friend. In the late 1980’s he made his first piece of lighting which was a one-off Spiral metal ceiling pendant which produced an unusual and active lighting effect. In 1994 the “Jack” light appeared, I always believed that the Jack was a reference to the old school game of Jacks, this fabulous floor lamp is now a lighting classic and sought after by collectors and interior designers alike.


Tom Dixon Lamps a range of modern classics.

When I discuss the Tom Dixon brand with people it is surprising how many people are familiar with the Tom Dixon Beat range of pendants but who are unaware of the other types of lighting offered by Tom Dixon.

The Tom Dixon Beat range of Desk Lamps.

In the early 2000s, Tom Dixon was part of an initiative in India which helped traditional craftsmen in Northern India keep their amazing metalworking skills alive. The Tom Dixon Beat range was born from that initiative.
These Beat desk lamps are a perfect foil for the matching range of Beat pendants giving the opportunity to connect all elements of a lighting scheme in an interior scheme or space. Each Beat Lampshade is made from quality spun and hand brazed Brass with the interior having beaten hammered surface marks. Each beat lampshade will be unique.

  2. Hi! I think the Tom Dixon lamps are gorgeous. I especially like the melting lamp and the Stone table lamp. I also like the story behind the lamps that you describe in your post. I am sure there is a big difference between cheap copies and the real thing. Are you going to add the price beside the lamps ? I found the prices in the link at the bottom of your post. I think you should link the photo to the item in the shop or leave a link to the shop beside every lamp – just a friendly tip – It will be easier to find and buy. I looked in the unique summary of best lamps as well and found many excellent and beautiful pendant lamps there as well. The webshop looked great and easy to navigateI will definitely consider a Tom Dixon lamp next time I need a lamp.

    1. Hi Hilde – Thank you for the comment, the Melt lamp is one of my favourites from the Tom Dixon range. If you ever get the chance to hold and feel an Original Tom Dixon lamp then you will instantly be able to recognise a cheaper copy.

      Kind Regards

  3. Hiya Michael 

    What a wonderful collection of lighting solutions! I’d never heard of Tom Dixon but I’ll certainly be looking him up now. This was so interesting, beautiful pictures, I love all the different styles available. Reading about the history of the Tom Dixon lamp was fascinating, so much talent. 

    The Tom Dixon Melt is absolutely stunning, I’d love one in my bedroom. Is the Tom Dixon Bell lamp available in purple? If so I’ll have two! 

    Thank you for sharing his work in such a well laid out manner, it’s been a real eye opener for me as to what’s out there. I am keeping it for more home decor ideas, krs PurpleLioness 

    1. Hi There – Thank you for the comment, Tom Dixon is a bit of a start in the world of designer lighting, the range is not cheap BUT is worth every penny due to the unique design and really high build quality.

      Regards – Mike
