The Bestlite BL7 Wall Lamp is a wall mounted light which provides direct light. It has a chrome or brass arm mounted on a round bracket with an adjustable matt lacquered shade. Bestlite have been manufacturing this lamp design by Robert Dudley Best in Birmingham since the 1930s. An early example of the Bauhaus movement it was featured in the 'Architects Journal'. This opened up the light's potential to the architectural community and huge success followed. Its credibility was also strengthened with the Prime Minister Winston Churchill using one on his desk, giving the lamp iconic status.

A design classic in its own right the Bestlite now comes in many different forms and has many applications. Spanning the design spectrum Bestlite lends itself to both cutting edge contemporary and traditional interiors alike.

The BL7 is available with an exposed cord and switch on the backplate, or for hard wiring into your wall in certain colour options. It makes a perfect bedside light.
