For as long as I can remember I have always wanted a hurricane lamp, however I have never had a place to put one, which allowed me to really show off its beauty. That was until we moved as in the new place we have a mantel piece and OK looking electric fire, which I realised would be off set nicely by a hurricane lamp.
So when Robert Welch got in touch and asked if I would like to review something from their website, it wasn’t much of a surprise when I fell head over heels for the superb looking; Helix Hurricane Lamp.
This beautiful hurricane lamp is inspired by the helical forms found in nature and is made from 18/10 stainless steel, walnut and thermal-resistant borosilicate glass.
The mix of materials has been carefully selected to go together, with the steel arms surrounding the glass case, which is placed on top of a stainless-steel dish which mirrors anything placed on top of it. The lamp is then sat upon the walnut base.
The stainless-steel has been polished to perfection and offers up the impression of an always moving surface as it bounces the light from a lit candle within.
The Helix Hurricane Lamp is definitely an item of beauty, with its sweeping arms and contrasting materials it is an item that is bound to grab attention when it is spotted sat in a room.
I personally think this hurricane lamp has gone beyond any exceptions I had of what my perfect one would be like. The look is so simple in design, but so striking in reality that it could really be placed anywhere in the home and still look as though it belongs.
Perhaps most surprising of all, is the fact that the Robert Welch Helix Hurricane Lamp comes in at just £40, an absolute bargain in my eyes.
What do you think of the Helix Hurricane Lamp, could you see it shining brightly in your home?
