Copper Angled Floor Lamp

Keep dark nights at bay with this Copper Angled Floor Lamp, £180.

We might be heading towards spring, but the days are still short, which means it’s essential you have all your lighting needs sorted.

We have a fantastic range of lights and lamps here at Furnish from classic table lamps to contemporary floor lamps, alongside funky chandeliers and pendants.

One of my favourites is this Copper Angled Floor Lamp by The French Bedroom Company. Simple, yet elegant in its design, it will bend and move to suit your needs.

Perfect for the living or bedroom, there’s also a gold version available, so all styles and colours of room are catered for.

Trend Watch: Industrial

Our favourite industrial-style items

Bring some factory chic to your home with our pick of the best industrial-style products around.

When it comes to interiors, the industrial trend shows no sign of abating.

I, for one, love it! There’s something about bringing bashed-up, factory-style pieces into the home that just works. It shouldn’t but it most definitely does.

From lighting to furniture, accessories to wallpaper, it’s easy to inject this look into your home.

If you work from home, this Brooklyn Finest Industrial Desk With Drawers by Alexander and Pearl is a real statement piece perfect for a home office and, with 3 drawers, it’s practical too.

Lighting is a huge part of this trend, and whether it’s original or reproduction you’re after, there’s an amazing choice available. We like this Small Industrial Pendant in Lacquered Steel by Viva Lagoon. Taking inspiration from mid-century factory lighting, it would look fantastic in the kitchen or dining room.

Finally, what to do with your walls? The answer is splash out on Piet Boon’s Concrete Wallpaper (CON-06 shown here) by BODIE and FOU. It doesn’t come cheap but looks great and is perfect for completing the factory-cum-warehouse look.

Editors Choice: Console Tables

Some of our favourite console tables

Keep your hallway tidy with our pick of the best console tables around.

A console table is an essential piece of hallway kit. A place to stash keys, post and other hallway paraphernalia, and here at Furnish we have all shapes and sizes to suit every space and style of home.

Working just as well in the bedroom as in the hallway, this Mirrored Tray Console Table by The French Bedroom Company is both stylish and practical. While those who need to be savvy with space will love this Small Black And Silver Console Table by Out There Interiors which is just 90cm wide and 40cm deep.

Meanwhile, if you prefer an oriental style, we have this Classic Chinese Console Table in Oyster Grey by The Nine Schools or the Asian Contemporary Small Console by Shimu to choose from, both of which should fit the bill perfectly.

Madaillon Rug

Madaillon Rug in Grey Turquoise

Add warmth and pattern to your floors with this Madaillon Rug, from £90.

Rugs are one of my favourite accessories when it comes to the home. Perfect for everything from covering up one too many red wine stains to keeping your floors warm and cosy – they’re also great for adding pattern and texture.

This Madallion Rug (in Grey Turquoise) by Naken Interiors has just made it to the top of my wish list and is absolutely perfect for my living room.

Inspired by traditional Persian designs, it has been given a contemporary twist thanks to its colour palette.

Great for the bedroom and living room, use this rug as the basis for your colour scheme and accesorise with turquoise and grey vases, cushions or throws to bring your look together.
