The Hot List: Lovely lamps

A cleaverly lamp can transform a space, particularly when it's as eyecatching as this.

1 Positive aura

Inspired by the moon jellyfish, or Aurelia aurita, QisDesign's LED Aurelia lamp looks stunning and is energy-efficient to boot. It has a semi-translucent, almost ethereal feel to it, and light intensity can be controlled with a three-way touch dimmer.

2 Gun control

It's a tad over the top, perhaps, and maybe a little too Scarface for some people's tastes, but we wouldn't expect anything less from a lamp designed by the weird and wacky Philippe Starck. Flos' Guns Bedside lamp comes in a matte black and 18K gold finish, as well as this chrome version.

3 Boxed in

We love this portable table lamp by quirky Spanish brand Design Code. Made from cardboard and polypropylene, the lamp's cable and electrical socket fit within the box, making it easy-peasy to transfer it from one room to another. The Flamp comes in a range of eye-catching colours, including this special edition gold and white version. We'd buy three or four in different shades and line them up against a wall.

4 Grin and bear it

What better thing to have on your bedside table than this über-cute Teddy Bear Lamp from Interior 360. The lamp is made from white bone china, and looks as adorable turned off as it does when it is switched on.

5 Simply does it

This tripod lamp from Home Centre is as simple as it is stylish. Made from whitewashed wood paired with an understated white shade, the lamp will look great in minimalist design schemes and, at less than Dh200, it's also a bit of a steal.
