Lava lamps have been around for over fifty years! and as time has gone by, these have evolved into a variety of terrific lava lamps that give your room a soothing, relaxing and moving background light. 

Here at Lava-lights, we bring a variety of lamps in many colours and effects to suit any room in your home.. 

The Background

 Invented in 1963 by British entrepreneur Edward Walker (who founded the lighting company "Mathmos"), Lava lamps are pretty, calming and very decorative (I actually remember my nan owning one of these in the 1970's.. I was mesmerised for ages as a child! It's up to you if you classify these as "retro" or "timeless")  The lamp contains a special coloured wax mixture inside a glass vessel which also contains clear or translucent liquid. The glass vessel is above a bulb whose heat causes the warmed wax to rises through the surrounding liquid, it cools and falls back to the bottom of the vessel in a cycle. The lamps are designed in a variety of styles and colours and can now include other interesting additions to the lamp. Glitter lamps that work in a simular way can give a beautiful array of reflective lighting around the room.... Stunning! Add Lava lamps to your home, if you have children (or grandchildren) they will be as fascinated and mesmerised as we were as kids!
