Light me up!

It feels like we've been trying to buy the new house since, well, forever (if forever was last November anyway!) Which to someone as impatient as me is hell. 
But it's meant that I've had since November to plan and plot what I'm going to do with the space, as I might have mentioned once or twice in my Dream Home posts. It's also meant that, dangerously, I have had 6 months to lust after and collect stunning pieces for the new house. There are pictures printed ready to be framed, there are cushions that I'm hoarding, shelving units in the shape of boats, clocks and shower curtains all packed up in boxes just waiting to move. 
And then there are pieces like this stunning lamp which are just too pretty to keep out of sight until we move! 
I'm a bit of a lamp fan, I really don't like 'big light' lights and love to fill our rooms with pretty lamps. I have had my eye on a tripod lamp for the longest time but I'd not found one that I'd really fallen in love with until I spotted this beauty from Litecraft on one of their Fab Friday Giveaway posts (If you don't follow them on Facebook you should). Unfortunately I didn't win, but the lovely people at Litecraft offered to send me one to review.
We have it in our dining room at the moment, but I already think it'll eventually be living in our new hallway. The grey shade will match the black, grey and white colour scheme that I have planned. I also have these dreams of having a Scandinavian inspired home and it's the perfect shade of wood for that! 
But until we move I just like having it out where we can see and use it, don't you just think it matches perfectly with our side board?  
It's nicely made, with pads on the lamp base to protect where you put it, it's well put together, and I love that it comes with a grey cord that matches the shade (it's the simple things). And well, it just looks lovely doesn't it. 

What do you think of the tripod lamp? Do you love it as much as I do? What is your dream lamp? 

*This post is in collaboration with Litecraft. I wasn't paid for the post, but I did receive the lamp in return for the post.

    1. Ah, that was a find from a car boot - it's a bit temperamental though and needs a good flick to make it work! x

  3. Love that sideboard and lamp! I'm also hunting for a white tray like you've got - where did you get it? I'd so love to set up a bar area! x

    1. The tray was a tkmaxx purchase. It's got a beautiful shell mosaic inlay too! Perfectly glam for a bar tray! X

  4. Love the lamp and the sideboard and matching cords are something to be very excited about (our bedside lamps are orange with orange cords) :)

    1. Ah thank you. I'm a big fan of floor lamps too but we don't have the space for them at the moment. Hopefully in a month or so we will!

    1. Cheers. It's a neon one so very temperamental! Hoping a bit of a jolt during moving will make it work better! x
