These Edison Lamps might harness modern LED technology, but they also capture the look of the era from which the lightbulb came. What a nice balance.

Starting at £135, the lamps are totally customisable. There are three different choices of bulb shape—traditional, teardrop, or globular. You can also add a dimmer (for £25 more), and pick out the colour of cable you'd like. The Edisons make a nice little desk lamp with some modern tech hidden in a vintage cloak.
