Lucky Leonard Woolf and John Lehmann, reading by the light of a Bloomsbury lamp. I've always wanted one - you could call it lamp lust.
Duncan Grant sometimes painted pictures of the lamps he lived with.
(The real thing.)
Vanessa Bell made this lamp and shade - others have followed suit.
Here is another, at Charleston Farmhouse, starring in a film with Patti Smith!
I've searched online for a lamp of my own and visited the shop at Charleston to hunt through their classy souvenirs for just the right shade - to no avail.
Then a few weeks ago a kind fellow-blogger got in touch with me. She had a Bloomsbury lamp for sale and remembered that I "needed" one!
Thank you so much Jean (of the Shrimpton and Perfect blog)!
