Pick of the week #14

I’ve dropped the ball a bit with this over the last few weeks – my sincere apologies! Several time consuming things have come up in our personal and professional lives recently which have taken their toll in my blogging activity – and I must make a confession that we’re off on holiday this coming week, so there won’t be one of these next weekend either! I am rubbish! Blame Summer!

Anyway, this week’s pick of the week is India Jane! Heard of them? If not, where have you been?!!

They make some truly delightful furniture and home wares, and in particular this week, it’s their V&A collection lamp bases that have got me all hot under the collar.

These are my top picks – check them out;

Top l-r : Tree of Life, £99.50, Green Parrot, £99.00

Bottom l-r :Butterflies, £99.50, Yellow Chinoiserie Temple Jar, £149.00

I understand they won’t be to everyone’s taste – they’re certainly not on Husband’s wish list – but I just think they’re great. A real investment piece you could pass down the family generations.

These items, along with others in the V&A range take inspiration from the huge archives at the Victoria and Albert museum, London, to create real stand-out pieces.

In my mind, I have a light, open hallway space painted white with light wood floors and a mango wood console table which will evoke a slightly exotic feel. A pair of these lamps flank a bold, black framed mirror and things are finished off with a Persian style runner.

What do you think? Are you a fan of these lovely, colourful lamp bases? I hope you think they’re as fab as I do!
