Ambit - £209

E27 - £52
E27 departs from the essence of a lamp - the socket – creating a simple yet strong object that celebrates the potential beauty in simplicity. The simplicity of the naked bulb is hard to compete with. It represents something that feels romantic and contemporary at the same time.

Our TOJO Store moved to the Glasgow's Merchant City over a year ago now so we thought we'd take the opportunity to celebrate our new home with a look at this great little area of the city.
Built and developed in the mid-1700s, as a product of the flourishing shipping trade, the area was known for its large warehouse style buildings, wide streets and numerous open squares that would later play a key role in the Merchant City's shift towards the fruit, vegetable and cheese markets that would characterise the area throughout the 19th century and beyond.
Sadly the whole of the Merchant City fell in to a decline in the 1960s after the council evacuated a huge number of the buildings to allow for demolition following plans to build a huge ring-road around the centre of Glasgow, as is often the way, these plans were eventually shelved in the 1980s and a plan was put in place to revitalise the now near-deserted area.
Still being revitalised to this day, the area is now home to a number of new shops, galleries, restaurants, the Royal Concert Hall and a host of revolving street markets and bespoke events. With that in mind, we've put together a list of some of our favourite establishments below!
With the changing of the clocks, we thought it was an appropriate time to for a good ol' spring clean here at TOJO and you can find some huge savings, both in-store and online, for a number of ex-display pieces from our Glasgow Merchant City showroom.
These pieces are very limited and a number have already been snapped-up so we thought we'd collate them all in one handy blog post for you, so you can see which bargains are still waiting to be grabbed! Check them out below with links to buy from the online store alongside each item - don't sleep on these!

New to the TOJO store is this beautiful Mammoth Chair by NORR11. We first saw this striking Armchair on a trip to Reykjavik and we're very pleased to have one in our store -sitting alongside the equally stunning Line Two Lamp, also by NORR11.
Headed by chief-designers Norwegian Knut Bendig Humlevik and Denmark's Rune Krøjgaard, NORR11 is mostly inspired by Scandinavian design, although the company also draws on influence from a range of backgrounds, including the Chinese Ming Dynasty and Bauhaus, among others.
Hand crafted with a solid oak frame the Mammoth Chair can be upholstered with washed canvas, wool or vintage leather. Given a distinctive look thanks to its 'wings', the chair is both an iconic, striking design and extremely comfortable too.
Available in a number of different styles; we chose the Fluffy Wool version in Dark Grey for our showroom - have a look at the pictures below and choose your own favourite!

Launched just before Christmas in 2014, Paulin Watches have continued to grow from strength-to-strength ever since, fast becoming one of the most popular products in the TOJO store.
A strong design aesthetic coupled with a very reasonable pricing structure has seen the Glasgow-based company’s reputation flourish in the short time they’ve existed and has certainly seen them come-good on their promise to "bring the manufacture of affordable, high quality watches back to Britain."
Both designed and assembled in Glasgow, the watches combine a sturdy leather strap with Japanese-made Miyota movements. Better still, Paulin’s latest design, the Commuter series, is there best yet; a slick and elegantly striking design in a range of different colourways.
Take a look at the new Commuter watches below and view the whole Paulin range at the TOJO store here.
