The materialsOur modern take on this classic design is made from clay which is left to dry naturally then a hand-sprayed glaze is applied before it’s fired in a kiln. We’ve added a metal antique brass finish to the neck and bulb base too which complements our three colourways and the grey fabric flex.
The colourMimicking the clay-grey colour of the material it’s made from, our Shale lamp base will bring a grounding hue to your scheme. Its shiny glaze matches perfectly with the matt, canvas-like linen texture of our warm white shade.
Design detailMost of our shades are compatible with the glazed base, but for a timeless touch we recommend our Henry or Lucile 19-inch versions in Clara Warm White.
A styling tip or twoWithout a shade, the Dalston stands at 44.5cm tall and has a diameter of 27cm; this makes it large enough to be a focal point in the room, so it’s best placed where you want to make a statement or bring some colour to the space. Use it in a prominent area such as a sideboard, console table or chest of drawers.
When it comes to smaller items, we don't hang around.
From our own, white-glove service for delivering larger pieces in the UK and Ireland, to our courier and international partners, rest assured that we’ve done everything we can to make sure your order gets to you on time and in one, perfect piece.
Delivery’s also entirely free if you’re in the UK and spend over £50 (or €100 in Ireland).
We believe that returns should be easy, which is why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. And, you’ll also have 28 days to do so – just in case you need time to mull things over.
To care for your lamp base, you should avoid using any abrasive cleaners – you only need a damp microfibre e-cloth to dust down the ceramic body. To give it a shiny finish, we recommend using a glass and polishing cloth after dusting. Due to the individual craftsmanship and nature of the glaze, the exact colours and look of each lamp may vary but this only makes every piece even more unique.
Need to know
You’ll need an E27 bulb for this lamp. We recommend using an LED bulb as these have a far lower environmental impact and are cool to the touch, so they won’t scorch shades (or fingers!), as opposed to halogen or tungsten bulbs that generate a lot of heat. We also recommend that the maximum strength of your bulb should be no more than 8W LED. As standard, this light comes with a UK three-pin plug and a Europlug adaptor.
