Pooky lights – the Interior Designer Edit 2020


It’s the 2020 Pooky Interior Designer Edit! In which the country’s finest interior stylists select their favourite Pooky lights…

Nothing quite floats our boat like seeing Pooky lights doing their thing in real rooms. And when those rooms have been created by the finest interior designers in the business– well, our cup it runneth over... We’ve got to know dozens of fabulously stylish professionals on the Pooky blog over the years – have a browse through them here – and we usually ask them to name their favourite Pooky light. Here’s an edit for 2020...

For the past decade London-based interior designer Beth Dadswell of Imperfect Interiors has been transforming homes into ‘inspiring spaces that are totally unique and full of character’ – including her own, which famously featured on Grand Designs. Beth chose an absolute Pooky classic: "I really love the Trafalgar – it is so elegant and understated but with a touch of glamour. The smaller version is perfect for bedside tables, consoles and sideboards, and the larger floor lamp is great in a living room or a bedroom. I have used them in the Antique Bronze and Brass versions and love them both equally!" Read our Q&A with Beth here.

She selected one of our modernist pieces: "I love the clean lines of the Mo floor lamp in brass with the black hood. It would work well I lots of the spaces I design." Read our Q&A with Tash here.

Vickie Nickolls has been creating beautiful residential properties with her Buckinghamshire-based agency Interior Therapy since 2014, picking up several Houzz design awards on the way. Interestingly, she went for one of our most distinctive feature wall lights... "My fave Pooky light is the Tiree wall light. I love how it can be easily plugged in, so perfect for adding that extra lighting and feature on a wall." Read our Q&A with Vickie here.

TV presenter, author, Instagram legend and all-round style supremo Louise Roe has moved back to England from LA, and has spent 2020 working on the interior design for a stunning renovation of her new home in the country. And she has quite rightly packed it full of Pooky lights... "I have SO much Pooky! What’s brilliant is how often the collections change, so you know you won’t see the same item everywhere. That also means you have to be quick – I would often race to order new fabrics when I saw them!" My favourite is the floral pleated shade in our bedroom, on a wooden Otto base. The colours are perfect with our walls and the old books propping it up. Read our Q&A with Louise here. At Pooky we make beautiful lamps for beautiful interiors.
