BBC1 Money for Nothing Reclaimed Lighting

Last year we worked with BBC1’s popular daytime television show, Money for Nothing, collecting designer lighting created on the show.

Finally the transmission date of the first of our three episodes has arrived – Wednesday 15 March, 3.30pm on BBC1 – showing the creation of blacksmith artist Bex Simon‘s stunning – and vast – balanced-arm lamp. (So vast that it barely fitted in our shop!)

Bex’s light, I’m afraid, has already been sold to one lucky buyer and is currently overlooking the rugged north Cornwall coast near Newquay.

Next up is the programme’s host, Sarah Moore, who created a pair of ingenious adjustable floor lamps by recycling Hohner microphone stands, a pair of old enamel light shades – and a couple of vintage ink wells! The story of these lights airs on Tuesday 21 March, 3.30pm on BBC1 and you can buy the lights off our site here.

Our third light created for the series is by celebrated London designer, Rupert Blanchard, best known for his quirky furniture upcycled from vintage materials. For Money for Nothing he branched out into lighting and we just fell in love with the quirky colours of his large angle-poise desk lamp.

Rupert’s episode doesn’t yet have a transmission date, though it will air during this third series, so we’re expecting one soon. You can view his light here – we’ll be making that available for sale as soon as the episode airs.

If you have any questions about any of these fabulous reclaimed designer lighting creations, please get in touch.
