Pill is a capsule-shaped design that combines hand-blown glass with luxurious brass accents. As it is made to order, customers can personalise the drop height, glass colour, metal finish and configuration to create a unique piece for a specific space. 

‘I like the fact you can customise it to your own installation and give it individuality,’ says Staffan Tollgård.

A heavy burnished brass cylinder base balances an elegantly curved antique silver stem, finished off with a perfectly proportioned cone shade. 

It has a clear, timeless appeal and is indicative of the way the brand approaches designing, blending function perfectly with form.

‘Lights & Lamps has cornered the market on keenly priced yet well-crafted pieces – I can see its designs fitting into all sorts of decor styles,’ says Pip Rich.

This Sage Green finish, based on the archetype of Anglepoise’s Original 1227, is a nod to the work of Europe’s largest conservation charity, with every sale raising funds for the National Trust. 

‘Some may describe their look as industrial but I think there is a surprising elegance about the shape,’ says Pandora Sykes.

Table Light - winner: Doric Table Lamp by Heal's

Drawing inspiration from classical architecture, the Doric table lamp by Heal’s is a simple yet standout piece. It gives a contemporary nod to the iconic form of traditional Roman pillars and the architectural bones of the lamp are softened by a white opal glass shade.

‘It is a really cool lamp because of the contrast of materials and I like the play on scale with the oversized version,’ says Eva Sonaike.
