BHS Lighting Review: Herby Vessel Table Lamp

Years ago, long before the internet had really taken off (oh dear that shows my age!) if I was doing some interior design, the one high street store I would call at for some cool lighting would be BHS.

In all those years since, nothing much has changed, so when I was asked if I would like to review a piece of lighting from the BHS website, I jumped at the chance. I’ve been on the lookout for an interesting table lamp for the dining room/den for a little while and this one really stood out at me.

The Herby Vessel Table Lamp:

This lamp is just stunning. Much larger than I envisioned at 30 cms x 15cms, when lit it gives a delicate pattern up the wall and across the ceiling. The geometric edges work really well with the more contemporary looking room, and the copper finish is bang on-trend. I love how the rich colour works well with my wall collage and art work, and in the evening it lights this corner of the room perfectly.

The contemporary Herby Vessel lamp is part of the Illuminate Collection at BHS, a selection of modern and interesting lights, including pendant and ceiling lights. I absolutely adore this range, including the very industrial looking pendant shades, like the Dexter Pendant:



At the time of writing, the BHS Home Sale is in full swing, so the Herby Vessel Table Lamp is currently half price at £22.50. And this stunning Dexter pendant is also half off at £100. I am very tempted!

Check out the full BHS lighting range here.

If you want to try something from the Illuminate Range, including my Herby Vessel, check out the selection here.

Thank you to BHS for supplying the lamp for the purposes of the review. The thoughts, opinions and comments expressed are completely honest and my own.

    I had never considered BHS for lighting, so thank you for this! We’ve got to start thinking about lights for our house now the builders are nearly finished….

      I have a branch near me Clare, so in past years I’ve always physically shopped there. Always a very on trend selection so well worth a browse 😉

    Hi Jen, like you I’m a fan of BHS lighting, they have some really great modern designs. The Herby Vessel Lamp is stunning, it’s goes perfectly against your wall art and I know you like your geometrics! Gorgeous colour/finish and at that price I think it would be a crime not to buy one x

      Haha, yes I do love my geometrics! I keep looking at it as I walk by, the colour and finish is so eye catching x

    I completely agree – BHS are brilliant for lighting and have been for a long time (I bought some great lights and lamps from there long before the web came along). I love the Herby lamp and what a fab price it is in the sale! There’s a floor lamp in the Dexter range that I’ve had my eye on for a while, as well as a table lamp.

      Yay, someone else who’s a BHS lighting fan pre-internet 🙂 Thanks Rachel x
