In a recent home improvement supplement with the Saturday Telegraph there was the annual if-grey-winter-days-are-getting-you-down feature on lighting.  However, I couldn't help but notice the 'What's Hot for 2010' column.

The lighting buyer for Heal's said "We've seen a trend towards contemporary bright and bold lighting. Colourful lampshades with strong patterns look fantastic with a simple lampbase."

While the buyer for John Lewis added  "Table lamps are on trend this season."

So, having been creating bold and colourful lampshades with a variety of simple lampbases for ten years, I am now officially on trend and, of course, that means you are too if you happen to own one!
