Spotted – Gorgeous Yellow Adjustable Desk Lamp for £16!

It probably hasn’t escape regular readers attention that I have a bit of a ‘thing’ for an Anglepoise lamp. So much so that one of my genuinely most treasured possessions is ‘Arthur’; my original 1920s Herbert Terry Anglepoise lamp which my lovely husband bought me for my 40th birthday. I love him, and always thank him politely when he turns on (Arthur that is, not the husband. Don’t be smutty.).

Yellow Anglepoise Desk Lamp

We’ve been looking at the new Spring-Summer range from Fox & Ivy – Tesco’s own luxury brand of homewares and soft furnishings – and Tesco asked me to pick out a few of my favourite things (and yes, I totally just sang that to you).

So off I went to our nearest Tesco Extra, meandering through the homewares section looking at the new Fox & Ivy range, as you do… and imagine my happy squeaks when this baby jumped up and sang at me.

Also? It’s £16.
Just SIXTEEN of your pounds.

Frankly it’s a crime not to.

I didn’t get to keep it though – the daughter laid claim to it pretty damned swiftly (she’s a girl after her mother’s heart) and you can see it in pride of place in our Kids to Teens Bedroom Makeover here

Also – rest assured that the angles do what they’re supposed to. With so many cheap versions of the Anglepoise original you can’t actually reposition the lamp as the head will simply come slowly nodding down, or not bend the way you need it (and what’s even the point of an adjustable desk lamp if you can’t ‘poise’ it in any angle you choose?). But this one is solid and steady. I approve of her practicality as well as her swish good looks.

Oh, and if that beautiful yellow ochre isn’t your colour? That’s okay. It comes in a more industrial grey too (possibly more attractive to some of the boy variety of teens out there than the sunshiney cheerfulness of the yellow).

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
