A design icon – Giveaway with Houseology

**Iconic design klaxon**

I’m constantly learning about all things design through my interiors projects, endless research and writing. When something out there in ‘interior design land’ really resonates with me, I kind of have to share it with you guys. It’s like the law.

Today, it’s the Lampe Gras light.


La Lampe Gras 304

You might not have heard of Bernard-Albin Gras, but you will have certainly seen his lighting before if you’re an interiors lover like moi. In fact i’ve put a little Pinterest board together to show you his designs in action. Take a look.

Gras designed the La Lampe Gras light in 1921, making the design so very nearly 100 years old today. I hope I look as sleek, relevant and desirable when i’m a centenarian. Idolised by interior designers and architects worldwide (and little ole me in Leeds), La Lampe Gras combines a timeless aesthetic with genius engineering making it a much coveted design classic.


I’ve admired these lights from afar for ages, never really thinking I’d actually be able to own one of my very own. Although I have managed to get very close to one in the past…. If you’ve got a keen eye and a good memory, you may remember me using a wall light inspired by the Lampe Gras lights in the Eclectic Living Room project earlier this year.


Eclectic Living Room

Remember this?


Inspired by La Lampe Gras DCW 214

It’s hard to believe these lamps have been around since 1921 isn’t it? The design is timeless. Ya know, like a Chanel. And finally I get to have and enjoy my own piece of design history. I can’t tell you how excited I am to have a Lampe Gras light fitted in our soon to be new bathroom. (Catch up on all things bathroom here).


Thanks to Houseology, our very own Lampe Gras arrived a couple of weeks ago and I was blown away by the quality. Every inch of it feels beautifully solid and purposeful. It’s certainly an investment but something I know will cause me to raise a smile every time I walk into our new bathroom.

Why don’t you take a look at Houseology at the rest of the Lampe Gras designs? In fact, have a good look around the rest of their site as you could be in with a chance of winning a £100 gift card to spend in their online store. Just in time for Christmas too. Yeeha!

All you’ve got to do is leave a comment below letting me know which piece you’d treat yourself to with that £100. Will it be some new lighting, a piece of furniture, some new cosy textiles in time for winter? Maybe you’ll find something much coveted like I did….


The competition is open until midnight on Wednesday 14th December.

Here’s how to:

  • Leave a comment below letting me know what item you’d love to have from Houseology

    I love the Lene Bjerre Esmeralda Table Lamp in Silver from Houseology, thanks for hosting.

  2. Sharon says

    Awww I love the lamp! And so many great items, I needed to stop myself from adding them all to my basket! This Normann Copenhagen Stay Table 40x52cm, looks great! I need a side table 🙂

  3. I’m a fan of Gsas too and would love to own Blue Red Chrome Yellow
    La Lampe Gras – DCW No 226 Bookshelf Lamp, It’d be a truly difficult choice, but that yellow would pop in my study. Hmmm…

  4. greymoosedesigns says

    Stunning light.

    Hard to choose just one product, but. I’d go for The Oeuf Classic Toddler Bed (in White/Walnut) for my son, Stanley.

  5. freshdesignblog says

    I’m pleased you’ve finally got your hands on the light you’ve been coveting! I really like Tom Dixon’s designs, so think I’d have to treat myself to one of his vases of bowls.

  6. welovehomeblog says

    I’ve had my eye on the wall mounted exending light for my monochrome living room – either in white or black (I’d need your help to pick!) I’ll do a blog post on the end result to show you.

    Adore your bathroom scheme. This loft is going to look freakin awesome x

  7. There’s so many lovely things on the website that I would love to have! I’m into the copper shade at the moment so maybe this?-lampe-gras-dcw lamp-shade

  8. My goodness that is a beautiful lamp!

    After browsing the site for too long (seriously, I’m supposed to be buying gifts for other people today) I’ve decided I’d spend a £100 voucher on either Lene Bjerre chopping boards or put it towards a Skagerak Georg floor mirror. So dreamy…!

  9. Vansoire says

    Ooh, I would maybe experiment with a bit of Timorous Beasties wallpaper to counteract my very traditional bedroom…

  10. Ruth Mojito says

    It’s got to be the Pip Studio singing rones wall mural 😍👌✅

  11. Kerry Hyland says

    Ooh I’ve had my eye on the Lene Bjerre Carmela wall light in black. Also loving the Lampe Gras. I too am living in the midst of house renovations (whole house for the past 18 months & continuing with an extension in the new year 😱) . Your loft is looking amazing (I feel your pain)

  12. Mummy Snorebeast says

    James needs a lamp for his room since we decorated (he also needs a proper ceiling light, but we’ll gloss over that for now…). I think he’d like flos-miss-sissi in violet.

  13. Emily OMara says

    wow amazing comp, would love the Designers Guild Balintore Zinnia Throw to jazz up my bedroom

  14. emilyy4444 says

    wow fab comp, would love the Designers Guild Balintore Zinnia Throw to jazz up my bedroom

  15. LizzieLivingPretty says

    I love the light – I always think good lighting is worth the investment.
    Speaking of which… I’d probably spring for their Tom Dixon Base lamp – it’s so pretty, and I’ve got the perfect spot for it. Will keep my fingers crossed!

  16. April Nash says

    mmmm…. matt black.

    So out of interest, I’ve just been on the website, and THEY HAVE THE CHANDELIER that I’ve had in my mind but could never find online! It’s got to be the Riviera Maison Huntington Court Chandelier – I want this in my new kitchen, with exposed brick and oak table!

  17. Such a gorgeous lamp, I love it! And also the one you used in the eclectic living room project – I so want to use that somewhere but not yet found the right spot.
    This is an amazing giveaway! So hard choosing ONE thing from Houseology – so many gorgeous gorgeous things! But I’d pick the Anglepoise Type 1228 Wall Light as I’ve coveted those for ages!

  18. Alex Muir says

    I have been after some Martini glasses for a long while and spotted their Eva Solo Martini glasses, so I’d buy 4 of those. They’re soooo beautiful.

  19. Rachel (@TheOrdinaryL) says

    I’d love the Normann Copenhagen Toj clothes rack. I’ve had my eye on it for a while. Hope the renovations are going well x

  20. I really love everything on their site to be honest! But more surprised how much i like the kids stuff. Love that there is a shark wall mount. I know how bonkers that is but my little nutter’s would love it x

  21. madaboutthehouse says

    Oh it’s so hard to decide, you could have such fun with £100…. current favourite is the notre monde bronze mirror which is £110 but I reckon I could find an extra tenner for that beauty XK

  22. tressa lapham-green says

    You inspired me talking about lighting, and I desperately need a reading/table lamp, so I would choose the beautiful & vintage inspired Eichholtz Lawson Table Lamp that comes in bang on £100!

  23. lucy knight says

    wow there is so much I like but need to redecorate my bedroom so like some furnishings for that.x

  24. Hannah Todd says

    Joseph Joseph Index Mini – Graphite

  26. Angie McDonald says

    I’d love to have the Hide Stool with Chrome Legs! It’s such a statement piece and is so unique – I adore it!

  27. Ooh I’d love to win, on the lighting theme I’d buy Muuto’s charming leaf table light, in green, I don’t usually stray out of my grey/white safe colour zone but I love this design’s shape and think it will become a classic in years to come!

  28. sion gibby says

    I love the vitra Eames DSW chair in white. Know exactly where it would look great in the house!

  34. Emily Catherine Howard says

    I’d love to buy a Houseology Collection Distressed Wooden Round Clock 🙂

    Thanks so much. Great blog x

  35. Zoe Warren says

    I’d put it towards the Houseology Collection Industrial 3 Pendant Ceiling Light. We moved into a new build house in February and have not had any time to decorate and stop it looking so plain everywhere. This light would look amazing in the kitchen, and would be a real talking point!

  36. Ali Casson says

    I’m in your camp! La Lampe Gras – DCW No 214 Wall Lamp – Black Satin is amazing. I have the absolute perfect spot for it!

  37. What a lovely prize thankyou! I would probably treat myself to some gorgeous new towels, the Lexington Original Towel – Dark Red! I’d pass on all my tatty, holey and hairdye stained mixed bunch to be used for dogs or something, that’s all they’re fit for haha!

  38. Sophie cowling says

    I would buy the LSA Edge Champagne Flutes in Rose Gold. They would be perfect for a special toast on Chistmas day with all my family.

  39. Louise Asekokhai says

    I really love the Georg Jensen Koppel 22cm Wall Clock Harlequin. Its so stylish and would really go well with my living rooms style.

  40. Julie Booth says

    I would put it towards the Houseology Collection Industrial 3 Pendant Ceiling Light, as this would look fantastic in our kitchen/diner

  41. Gary Wild says

    Riviera Maison Romantic Christmas Wreath,
    Riviera Maison The Perfect Knot Cutlery Set
    but a couple of the Vitra Charles & Ray Eames Soft Pad ES 106 Chaise would do just as well!

  42. Sinead ORourke says

    Riviera Maison Champagne, Wine & Joy Wine Cooler for the news year eve.

  43. Laura Varley says

    Better late than never, but this has taken me the best part of tonight and my shopping basket comes to wayyyy over £100…but I would be ever so grateful for the contribution! Now part of me thinks..bugger it, if I want to spend £100 on a Niki Jones concentric cushion (slate please) I will. Having said that though i’ve actually only bought two Christmas presents so far, so the money would probably be best spent on any one of the beautiful Lane Bejerre chopping boards, for my other half/personal chef and a Tom Ford candle for the mother…preferably ‘fire’ – as I’ve often wondered what burning money smells like. Ironic. If I had any money spare I’d treat myself to a Jansen+Co copper and white candle holder cause I’ve had my eye on one for ages! Good luck choosing! Sorry for the essay, if I don’t win then please forward this to Santa ☺ x

  44. melaspurt says

    I would love to have the OH Haus Geo Grise Wall Mounted Bathroom Unit
    in our bathroom! It would really look fab and sort out our storage problem!

  45. Ruth Wollerton says

    I would love everything, a new light, some towels, a throw, pillows …….

  46. Charmian Filewood says

    Jeez, I could get lost on there lol I would probably pick the Riviera Maison Sicily Wall Lamp. But you must look at this too, I’ve fallen in love with it totally, I love Art Deco andrew-martin-josephine-cabinet now to find a spare few thousand pounds lol
