Copper has never been more popular in interior design than it is at the moment, and with good reason – it manages to look striking while somehow also evoking a warm atmosphere. The effect is enhanced when the metal is used in a light fitting – and, with this in mind, we present our favourite copper touch-sensitive table lamps.
Destiny Touch Lamp in Copper – £60, John Lewis
The elaborately-etched copper-coloured steel cylinder that forms the exterior of this gorgeous Destiny table lamp is only part of the story. Within, you’ll find a multitude of clear, faceted glass beads that refract the light residing at the centre. It’s also a practical lamp, with a three-stage touch dimmer; a simple tap to the base enables you to select your favourite setting. This beautiful lamp is also available with a chrome finish.
Cameo Touch Table Lamp in Copper with White Shade – £55, Premier Housewares
Premier Housewares’ ball table lamp is a stand-out piece that’ll add luxury to any setting. Its base is formed from four connected steel balls with a copper finish, and these are finished off by a simple round white fabric shade. Touch the orb frame to activate the lamp and move it through its three brightness levels. If you like the shape but not the colour, a version is also available with a chrome-finished base.
Ukai Fisherman 38cm Touch Table Lamp – £41.99 (was £59.99), MiniSun
We can’t resist the curvy yet chunky form of this Ukai fisherman’s touch table lamp which has a four-stage touch dimmer switch. A curved arm extends from a thick circular base and supports a large, traditionally-shaped light shade and bulb. This stylish piece currently available with £18 off its original price tag, so there’s never been a better time to get your hands on this statement table lamp!
Angelo Copper Circle Touch Table Lamp – £24.99, Very.co.uk
This lamp looks like it belongs centre-stage at the school nativity play, so we are not surprised it’s called Angelo! Very.co.uk’s copper touch table lamp has a really unique design: a bare bulb emerges from a chunky, copper-coloured cylindrical base, from the sides of which extend two parallel metal rods that reach out to form a circle. The 35cm-high piece will make a great, atmospheric addition to your home.
Maya Pair Of Copper Touch Lamps With Cream Fabric Shades – £20, Habitat
What do you mean, one lamp isn’t enough? OK then: we present – for a rather astonishing twenty quid – Habitat’s Maya lamps. This cute duo pair copper-coloured, touch-operated bases with crisp white shades – though, if these don’t match your colour scheme, versions with silver-coloured bases are also available with either black, grey or cream-coloured shades. At this price, we’ll have one (or rather two) of each!
