It looks very ikea.

mrsmeerkat Thu 31-Mar-16 16:20:25

no no no. treat yourself to a whole new wardrobe or romantic weekend away.. over 500 quid
Ikea or habitat have great lights

Nice but not worth the money. Definatly ikea style

MrsMarigold Thu 31-Mar-16 16:23:09

boohoo, I saw it in situ here, do you really think it looks very Ikea.

Buzzardbird Thu 31-Mar-16 16:23:09

If it was glass or shell or something costly, but what is it made of?

PerspicaciaTick Thu 31-Mar-16 16:23:32

There are loads of this style around at the moment. even Dunelm Mill are doing one for a tenner. Or M&S, John Lewis etc. etc.

I know it's incredibly immature of me but "Collage is now available in a new series of douche colours" made me grin

Sorry, OP- it's got Isawyoucoming written all over it.

MrsMarigold Thu 31-Mar-16 16:23:48

It's matt acrylic

Buzzardbird Thu 31-Mar-16 16:24:23

Oh dear no, it's made of plastic!

Tiggeryoubastard Thu 31-Mar-16 16:24:45

Very time you turned on the light you'd hear the echoing laughs of the people that manage to sell one to a total mug at that price.
It's nothing special but we all have different taste. It'd be overpriced an a tenth of the price.

Scone1nSixtySeconds Thu 31-Mar-16 16:25:45

Umm. I think it would be fairly easy to get the effect by layering lampshades if you were so inclined.

It just seems a bit, well, average, for such a high price.

MrsMarigold Thu 31-Mar-16 16:29:29

I think it would create a lovely soft light and disagree that it's like those other cut out ones, because of the three layers the light is diffused

slicedfinger Thu 31-Mar-16 16:37:08

Well, I do think it is very beautiful, but I'd have to love it for a long time to justify the cost!

SuburbanRhonda Thu 31-Mar-16 16:40:19

My DD used to have a skirt like that smile

Barabajagal Thu 31-Mar-16 16:40:33

Erm - what's a "douche colour"? Genuinely baffled.

Bearbehind Thu 31-Mar-16 17:13:09

I realise taste is personal but I think it is hideous and looks very cheap as its plastic. I wouldn't pay £50 for it let alone £550.

BoboChic Thu 31-Mar-16 17:16:42

You'd need two or three of them to make an impression and you would need the right sort of interior decoration to boot.

VilootShesCute Thu 31-Mar-16 17:18:10

Douch colour. Heh grin Beautiful shade though

VilootShesCute Thu 31-Mar-16 17:18:47

Douche even. Heh heh.

noeuf Thu 31-Mar-16 17:21:10

Bertrand that's exactly what I was coming to post.

hugoagogo Thu 31-Mar-16 17:22:42

How ducking much!

thetroubleis Thu 31-Mar-16 17:23:10

Definitely Ikea. I know this for sure because I have a lot of stuff from there!

MuddhaOfSuburbia Thu 31-Mar-16 17:26:01

Skandium stuff-or near as dammit- always seems to turn up in ikea sooner or later

Buzzardbird Thu 31-Mar-16 17:31:06

Douche is a watery colour.
