Unusual Table Lamps. How to find something different.

Unusual Table Lamps. How to find something different.

Unusual Table Lamps.

Our high streets and many online retailers are awash with basic or standard designs of household products that have been tweaked and presented as something new and different where as the truth is these “new” products are just a snip away from an old design. This applies of course to lighting. Last week while wandering around a large DIY/Home store I was struck by how all of the lighting and table lamps were all the same old designs, yes they had been tweaked and given new finishes but in truth, there was nothing different or unusual.

So what do you do if you want something unusual and different, obviously this is where the internet comes into its own, it is just a case of finding somewhere trusted and with a good track record of service and with good feedback, ideally somewhere that has a brick and mortar presence so you can go and have a look. In The United Kingdom, many companies exist, that have decades of experience producing quality indoor decorative lighting. In this post, I will show you some of my favourite & unique quality unusual lamps from one of these companies called Graham & Green. Graham & Green is an independent family-run business that started in 1974 with its first shop in the trendy Notting Hill in West London. The company started its online business in 1999 and has now gained a reputation for offering unique and beautifully designed quality homewares at an affordable price. Graham & Green offers a range of interior design items and lighting including these unique and very unusual table lamp options.
