Pooky’s favourite Instagram moments of 2021

Gaze at a gobsmacking gallery of gorgeousity and glamour from a great year on the ‘Gram….

Well 2021 has certainly had its ups and downs, but one thing we interior-lovers can always rely on is the sheer pleasure of gawping at gorgeous rooms on Instagram. And it’s been another bumper year for bewilderingly beautiful abodes. Here are six of our favourite Insta moments…

1) At home with Greg Penn (@manwithahammer)

Greg’s epic adventures in renovating a 30-room Georgian house in Devon have kept us all going through these last few locked-down years. It’s lovely to see Pooky’s lamps popping up in various rooms as the project develops. Here’s Greg with our larger Ambrose table lamp with 45cm Straight Empire shade in pink block printed cotton

Follow Greg via @Manwithahammer and read our Q&A with the man himself here.


2) SJ Axelby’s portrait of Padang

Artist SJ Axelby (@sjaxelby) is an supremely talented depicter of interior scenes, and we were delighted when she painted this portrait our Padang table lamp and Teal Heraldic shade in March.

See more of SJ’s work in our illustrated interview with her here.


3) Alex Pantano’s living room

As you know if you follow our Insta feed, we love nothing more than boasti– ... er, we mean, celebrating the appearance of our lamps in really well-designed real homes.

This snap from June is from @alexpantano and her stunning living room, featuring our Bayou table lamp and Orange Dotty shade.


4) Pooky at Decorex

Amid all the lockdowns and pingdemics and zooms, it was so lovely to get physical again at Decorex in October. We couldn't be more thrilled with our colourful little cavern at the Olympia, and we were able to unveil a host of new products, including some of our game-changing cordless rechargeable table lamps.


5) Anna Haines’ botanical bathroom

We love this shot from September because it shows that even the smallest room in the house - and even a really small smallest room in the house - can be made sensationally beautiful in the hands of a tip top designer.

This beautiful botanical bathroom by @annahainesdesigns features amazing Antoinette Poisson wallpaper as well as Pooky’s brass double jointed wall light and Stanley shade! Gorgeous.


6) Phileas and The Slow Traveler

This is a still from something very special: the glorious reel shared by Carolyn @theslowtraveler in December, featuring our Matthew Williamson-designed Phileas rechargeable lamp on its most epic adventure to date!

Watch the reel here and be transported!


So long 2021! Follow Pooky on Instagram and 2022 is guaranteed to be a year of endless interior design loveliness…
