Fired Earthenware in the Spotlight

Table Lamps and hanging lamps; new decor trends featuring ceramics.

Table lamps with ceramic bases in bright new shapes are lighting the way to a new trend for home interiors. Pottery has been around for hundreds and hundreds of years and you may think every type of lamp pot design has already been made. Or so you’d think!

Wrong! Bright new lamps have emerged. Table lamps are famed for reflecting the styles and fashions of the day. There is no quicker way of adding a stylish statement light to a room than by plugging in a decorative lamp. But which style table topper suits you and your home decor?

The variety of seemingly endless ways to shape a ceramic pot makes the choice plentiful. However, when you throw into the mix the combinations of colours and textures and the sheer variety of lamps begins to dazzle. We’ve collated a few of the notable new arrivals for your consideration.

Dip Dyed table lamps add interest and brings a contemporary look to a traditional classic shaped lamp.
