The discovery of the Rosetta Stone in 1799 prompted a fascination with all things Egyptian. And just when interest was beginning to fade, Howard Carter's uncovering of Tutankhamun's tomb in 1922 started the craze all over again. Now, ninety-four years later, our palm tree lamp is providing a fresh fix for Egyptophiles. Its 19th century retro design combines both Pharaonic and classical influences, with a sensible dose of modern convenience. In other words, it's all ready to plug in and enjoy, straight out of the box. With a bronze finish and linen-look shade, it has a 185cm flex with integral switch.
