1970s Twin Spotlight Floor Lamp in Mushroom – Conran/Habitat Style
If there’s any colour that says 1970s as much as avocado does then it just might be this one, the colour of this twin spotlight floor lamp. We believe the lamp was made by/for BHS in the style of Terence Conran’s Maclamp Super Bl Floor Lamp for Habitat (this one is missing the plate under the base which would have had the maker’s mark on – otherwise we’d be able to identify it conclusively as a Conran).
We’d call the colour mushroom, a sort of light brown/grey and although that doesn’t sound promising when expressed like that, this set of spotlights really does look good.
With its fully adjustable twin spotlights, this lamp complements the mushroom colour with black detailing and a gold tone metal adjustable stand onto which the spots clamp. The base is plastic and weighted down internally in metal and it stands steady. The black box containing the two independent switches and the black coiled power cabling all add to the 70s vibe of this light. This really does look the part…
The stand adjusts from a minimum height of around 120cm (47in) up to a maximum height of around 170cm (67in) and the base is 27cm (10½in) in diameter.
Condition-wise, it’s all really rather good. The plastic base has some minor scratches and there are signs of use on the stand and around the adjusting wings on the spotlights, but these are things that a “normal” observer wouldn’t spot (excuse the pun) and are only noticeable with very close inspection. It’s in good shape overall and it works perfectly.
