Pimp up your desk

Give your home office, home school or just the kitchen table the industrial, functional look with a handmade lamp from a creative Sussex couple.

For the home office, home school, or just because! We’re coveting the fab handmade lamps and lights from Sussex creatives Vicki Isted and Gary Knight. The functional, utility feel of this heavy duty number would work perfectly with Muddy’s ‘distressed’ (ie banjaxed) wooden table that fulfils all the above critera and, er, then some.

Vicki graduated with a degree in Fine Art from Chichester University and displayed her photography in the Arundel Gallery Trail, an open-house art trail featuring local artists and makers held every August.

Since being furloughed from her day job as a brand manager, she’s turned her attention once again to her creative work. As well as these unique lamps, made by electrician boyfriend Gary, her collection features adorable tea-light holders, chopping boards and coasters all with the same utility chic feel, along with Vicki’s fine art photography prints inspired by the South Downs and surrounding area.
