It’s interesting the things you find in different parts of the country – I don’t think I found a single pair of wall mounted bedside lamps in all my years in Durbs, but I’ve come a cross a good handful since moving to Joburg just ten months ago – perhaps Joburgers were more into their home decor than other smaller parts of the country? Who knows, all I know is how happy I am every time I come across a pair! This enamel set are very plain compared to some of the retro lifghts that you see, but that’s what makes them so attractive and so easy to adapt to a contemporary setting. The only bit of bling really (f you can call it that) is the stainless steel arms, that allow you to change the angle of the lamps. I think that the lights would probe;y look best with the wiring inside the wall, but obviously that’s a bit of work, and the lamps do have a hole where the wires can come out so that they can be surface mounted – a it’s a personal choice really.
A simple, but wonderfully handsome pair that would look ridiculously stylish instating on either side of your bed or headboard.
