Original British Retro Thorn EMI 1980’s Tall White Uplighter Floor Lamp

A bold, striking statement floor lamp in off-white fibreglass and plastic that dates from the early 1980’s but perhaps looks as if it’s originated from a 1970’s sci-fi film set! It’s certainly grand and at a second glance you can see an Art Deco influence in the mix too, especially in profile. A talking-point light like this does needs a large room, as it’s a big piece but its column-like stem and exaggerated curves certainly give it a dramatic presence that could be just what an open-plan modern interior needs.

This original restored floor light is ‘sold as seen’. It is in very good condition. It is a vintage piece however so there are some minor scuffs, marks and a little discolouration to the white finish.  The base itself is weighted to provide stability and there are some minor scratches and dents to the finish. The main stem is ridged and as you can see from our photo, some of the paint has scratched off here showing the silver metal underneath. This isn’t particularly visible though unless up close. When on the red on/off switch illuminates too. The THORN EMI maker’s label can be seen under the base. This lamp has been fully refurbished, rewired and PAT tested. It comes supplied with an energy efficient bulb. Please refer to our photos for a good sense of the condition.

If you have any questions, please do get in touch.
