I originally bought this light for our kitchen, but landed up using some retro Italian spot lights that I’ve been hoarding for years instead. This lamp would have worked well though – our kitchen’s disproportionately large in relation to the rest of our house, and this light’s a fair bit bigger than your average kitchen light. It has a bit of wear – there are some rather obvious chips in the paintwork, one or two minor dings, and the plastic fittings have yellowed slightly with age – but it’s size means that the wear is much less noticeable. Personally I’d probably try and touch up the paint (I’ve never tried it, but I heard Tipp-ex works quite well!), but other than that I’d leave it as is. Once it’s hanging in your kitchen (or dining room – in the right context it could work quite well), all you’re really going to see is that oversized shade!
Dimensions: Approx. 46cm in diameter x 30cm tall (excl. cord); 70cm tall incl cord (when cord is not extended)
