USB Retro Lamp. We’re trying to think of reasons why you’d want an ordinary looking 1950’s style desk lamp sitting next to your swish new Vaio laptop. And we’re failing. Sure, with some nice chintz curtains and a couple of Laura Ashley throws draped over your chair, we can kind of get it. But just sitting there on top of The Dummies Guide to PERL? Nah… £7.95.
Based on the classic spindle design, this smart little lamp looks like the kind of thing you might have seen in a Parisian drinking den in days gone by. The difference is, it’s small enough to sit on your desk. Ooh, la, la! Simply plug it into the nearest USB port and it will give off a gentle glow whilst adding instant ambience to your surroundings. Okay, it’s not really bright enough to replace your regular lamp but if you’re looking to evoke an era before computers ruled the world this is just the ticket.
