it's a steal - hurricane lamps

This will be a regular section where I post links to similar products with vastly different price tags. It used to be my favourite page in one of the many interiors mags, I can't remember which one, but now I get to choose!

After an accidental visit to Asda Home [yes, it can happen] I was pleasantly surprised by the design & quality of some of their products. I spotted an amazing hurricane lamp [I love them!] at a fraction of the cost of a very similar designer one from Heals. They work both indoors and outdoors, so if it ever stops raining, take them outside for an al fresco dinner...

Yes, you are going to be able to tell the difference in quality and finish between the two, but having seen the Asda one first hand it's by no means a shoddy piece and at a saving of £145... who's to argue?
