Later this month, many of will be turning our clocks back. One consolation for the shorter days is that it’s time to stock up on lighting, to ensure that you, your spaces and all that stuff that refines you looks as good as possible. The WallpaperSTORE* lighting edit will transform your table, console or desk with a click of a switch.

This week's exemplary illuminations include Inga Sempé’s charming shaded 'Sempé w103' table lamp for Sweden’s Wästberg, Omer Arbel’s blown glass '28d' sphere for Canadian specialists Bocci, Nendo’s pinched 'Press Lamp', in clear or smoke, for Bohemian glass maker Lasvit or Mark Holmes’s pared down, barely there, 'Neon' table light, in folded steel for London’s Minimalux. For something more classic there is the Anglepoise 'Original 1227 Desk Lamp', below, and from Brazil’s Objekto, Mauricio Klabin’s 1982 'Eclipse' lamp, above.
