At the end of last year, I finally got around to redecorating my living room. From a dark and closed in space to somewhere light, bright and airy I actually wanted to spend time in. Slowly, bit by bit, I have been changing my decor and adding in some home accessories. One thing that has been missing is a lamp. Until now.
Dandelion Interiors kindly sent me out a new lamp to help my room look a bit more modern. There are plans afoot to totally change the look and colour scheme of my furniture. I have the paint bought and ready for my upcycling project but no time to make a start properly as I have a coffee table, huge bookcase and a massive TV unit! But for now changing up my accessories will suffice.
The Oval Glass Dome Cloche on Black Wooden Base with LED Firefly Lights
When I first took the lamp out of its well-packaged box, I wasn’t really bowled over by it. However, when I set it up I quickly changed my mind. Resembling the enchanted rose jar from Beauty and the Beast, the lamp stood out proudly on the top of my TV unit amidst the butterfly tea light holders.
The lamp consists of a heavy glass dome cloche cover, a black wooden base and LED Firefly Lights lights. The lamp takes 3 AA batteries and has an on/off switch on the back. The glass cover lifts off and slots into a rim on the base. This means you can use it with or without it should you prefer. I recommend using it with the cloche on.
Switched off and in daylight, it was commented upon that it didn’t look much. But in the dark? It looks fabulous. The light it emits and the effect from the placement of the LED lights throughout are simply gorgeous! Much more than I thought it would be and expected it to be.
I love different products like this and from that first moment when I switched it on, I fell in love. I’m actually considering moving to my new office area in my bedroom. I’m now in an alcove and it’s really dark, but this lamp would be absolutely perfect if it didn’t look so good where it is right now.
Initially, the lights arrived coiled up into ‘8’ shape. But to me, the lights didn’t really wow me so much. So I separated them so they look like they are sprawled over the black wooden base. The glow it gives off kind of makes me wish it was winter already as it’s so cosy and warm and totally gives off that ‘winter nights sat in front of the fire’ vibe.
The effect from this is just gorgeous when you are sitting in the dark watching TV of an evening. Or even the middle of the day because opening your curtains is overrated!
I even caught Olivia putting one of our prop roses inside the jar to emulate the enchanted rose! You can still slightly see the stem in the above picture! I’m in no doubt done correctly, this would be perfect for any Beauty and the Beast fan. Albeit a little on the heavy side for children. But I will be keeping an eye on this to make sure she doesn’t swipe it on me!
The Oval Glass Dome Cloche on Black Wooden Base with LED Firefly Lights is available to buy from Dandelion Interiors for £43.20 but at the time of publishing there is 25% off and you can snap this light up for £32. Perfect to brighten up your room or to gift as a present if you know someone who would like this!
