En route back from a much needed power nap on Wandsworth Common we were deep in flat planning thoughts when we spotted a lonely lamp with a little disclaimer…

Now, it’s not the most desirable of shades, however, David weirdly was mentioning how we needed to get a floor lamp for the new flat so not ones to ignore fate we couldn’t help but adopt the skinny fella.

It’s a simple silver metal base which with a change of lamp shade could look perfect in the living room.

We’re thinking perhaps a metal cage-like lamp shade…

Paired with a vintage light bulb…

And we could re-design this freebie in to an industrial delight!

It’s amazing how once you need to find pieces for a flat, whether current or soon-to-be, you start to spot and look out for finds everywhere and anywhere. We were really lucky, and grateful, to find this lamp and couldn’t agree more with their last comment…

Long live freecycling!
