My lovely new daylight lamp...

Do you remember me telling you about the daylight lamp I was asked to review by the Daylight Company?  I was intending to write my review days ago, but realised I couldn't possibly take photos of my desk, it was in such an appalling state... so I had to have a tidy up especially so the lamp could have its picture taken :o)

It arrived packaged really well, and took hardly any putting together at all - I didn't even need hubby to help, which is very unusual for me!


Hmm... think I should have cleared my desk completely, it still looks a mess!  Oh well, it can't be helped - I seem to work best in clutter.  Although the lamp is quite big, you can see it fits in perfectly and it's a fab modern design, and nice and sturdy.


I love the way the head can be swivelled so you actually get light exactly where you need it, and it makes my craft room lovely and bright.  It also has a magnifier... now I had one of these on my old lamp (now relegated to the kitchen) and never used it as I could never get it in the right position for a good view.  This one's really easy to position though, and I've used it quite a lot.  I used to get headaches while colouring, but with the combination of the bright natural light and the magnifier I can sit and colour for hours :o)  And of course I can colour at night too, and it's just like working in daylight.

So it has a thumbs up from me, I love my fabby new lamp - thank you Daylight Company, I feel very lucky to have been asked to do this!

Looks good, I use a floor standing daylight lamp as it was originally bought when I did cross stitch, i love the light it gives out too :)

I'm so jealous...I've got a daylight lamp (which I had to buy!!)...and it DOESN'T have a magnifier :-( Great light though :-) Dee
