To go on a bookcase in our home office, next to the sofabed

The colours are light teal and dark brown - with a bit of cream

must it be a table lamp with a base or will a clippy one thus or thus do?

and is it just for use as a bedside lamp when someone is staying on the sofabed, or for general use?

Needs to be table lamp. Will be mainly a bedside lamp but also just for general lighting

in which direction does it need to be small? ie does it need to be short, or slim, or have a small footprint?

franch Fri 30-May-08 14:31:22

Very short - space between shelves is 30cm max

ooh Mrs B while you are lamp searching find me a bedside one

dh has one of those little blokes holding a book

I want a tiny one with lots of light for reading but pretty

MrsBadger Fri 30-May-08 14:43:12

done (that's for franch)

Capp have a look at BHS and Laura Ashley

MrsBadger Fri 30-May-08 14:46:18

similar but even smaller for Franch

Hmm, right size but not keen on the design ... I looked at Laura Ashley, they are pretty aren't they? But too big for me ...

I swear, you don't even see the Ikea one when it's not turned on - it's just plain opaque glass

This may not sound very glamorous, but could be worth having a look at BHS. Their lighting is pretty good - fussy DH got a very nice, stylish (and cheap!) bedside lamp there, whilst I was vainly looking through all the expensive designer stuff.

Thanks PV - MrsB's link was to BHS - they do have some good stuff

Actually the ikea one isn't bad MrsB - was just hoping for something prettier. (I also have a bit of a phobia about actually visiting Ikea, and they don't sell this one online ...)

Am still having trouble with this - anyone spotted anything lately?

I'm persevering because I know such a thing must exist ...

pack of 2

another one

They may not be stylish but they are all quite cheap!! I thought the spheres one was a bit unusual though

Seona, you star, thanks for responding

Don't think the spheres would fit on the shelf but the silver cubes are v good
