This clever Loft Living tripod table lamp at only £35 from Sainsbury's Home is fab for smaller bedside tables because you can pop books and a cuppa down in between the legs, AND you can direct the light with the dark grey metal head, win win! It has a modern rustic style so it will fit into most schemes and it looks great with black accessories.

A bedside table lamp with a round base will look great on a circular bedside table, because they will help the eye flow visually. The Silas blue gold table lamp from Graham & Green for £59 is really unusual. It has an antique blue gold concave shade that gives off a lovely glowing light and it will certainly be a focal point in your bedroom.

The craze for bare bulbs is still going strong and for those who love it, the Dayo Jardinere glass table lamp is for you! It has a quirky appeal and its thin frame gives it a light feel – which is great if your bedside is small as visually it won’t take up much space and being able to see through the lamp is great for creating the illusion of space. And it is only £28 so perfect for an affordable makeover.
