When we think of chic homeware shops and sought-after furniture retailers, Wilko isn't the first brand that springs to mind.

But that might all be about to change, as the humble store has found itself in the middle of a homeware storm on Instagram.

Wilko's Parchment Ceramic Lamp, available for just £5 in four hues: cream, white grey and pink, has been doing the rounds on social media and has been popping up on the perfectly-curated pages of influencers up and down the country.

In fact, it has proved so popular that the bedside light has already sold out in multiple hues, but thankfully is still available in beige.

The lamps are also getting rave reviews: "Can't believe the price for such a lovely modern lamp! Really adds a lovely touch to my bedside table," wrote one happy shopper.

Another added: "Bought two of these for our bedside tables after redecorating our bedroom, was looking at others 10 times the price of these and I couldn’t be happier I found these. They look so much more expensive than they are, lovely little lamp."

So, inspired by the interior gurus on social media, we had a browse through Wilko's other homeware offerings and there are indeed a whole host of trend-led and budget-friendly options that we immediately want to add to our basket.
