Can you guess the favourites from the Very collection?

We know you're not meant to have favourites but there are a few clear winners...

They say time flies when you're having fun. We can hardly believe it's been six months already since we shared the news of our collaboration with online retailer Very, to launch our exclusive collection of furniture and homewares. We can excitingly reveal that we've back in the studio with Very – watch this space as we'll be unveiling more furniture and accessories 'Very' soon!

While we're looking ahead at new collections, it's got us glancing back fondly on the successes of our existing collection. One of the best-selling items, rather unsurprisingly is the Shoreditch lamp. This sleek design combines a matt black base with a slim satin brass shade.

Here it is in all it's shining glory...

The sleek Shoreditch lamp is getting a whole lot of love, thanks to its versatility – it's the ideal addition to living rooms, studies and bedrooms.

Call us sentimental but looking back on the good times leaves us feeling all warm and fuzzy. We love nothing more than seeing our collection at home in your own homes. Send us your snaps by direct message on Instagram and we'll share a weekly round-up. @idealhomeuk #idealhomecollection

As you can see above it's perfectly at home nestled on a bedside table, alongside colourful blooms and simple artwork. This design doesn't require too much styling to make it look fabulous, this modern twist on a classic design makes a statement in its own right.

Our stylish Shoreditch lamp looks fabulously at home against the on-trend dark wall in this reader's home. The addition of an iridescent vase with simple foliage adds a further touch of understated elegance.

Here's one we styled earlier! This shot comes from the shoot we styled to announce the launch of our Modern Glamour collection....
