Contemporary Desk Lamps for Home or Office

by lakeerieartists

A desk lamp provides closer lighting that does not reflect off of my computer screen and my glasses the way overhead fluorescent lighting does.

For those of us who work at a desk for hours every day, our office can be a second home (or maybe a first home). For many people, that means needing to have a comfortable, well lit, and pleasant place to work.

For my office environment, I like to be able to read my papers and work clearly in the light of a desk lamp, because a desk lamp provides closer lighting that does not reflect off of my computer screen and my glasses the way overhead fluorescent lighting does. My tastes run more towards a contemporary desk lamp because I like simple lines and colors, and they are easier to dust (one of my least favorite activities).

Adesso Contemporary Desk Lamps

Adesso says:

Desk lighting is task lighting: for work, reading, school or just to be cool. A desk lighting can easily be the most useful tool on your desk. We're not talking utilitarian at Adesso - we're talkin' the centerpiece of desk stylin'.

Adesso contemporary desk lamps are very stylish, yet simple and sleek.  Their style is elegant and affordable with styles starting at about $30.00.  My favorite are the gooseneck styles.

Contemporary Halogen Desk Lamps

Halogen lamps are great for desk lamps, because they emit a lot of light from a very small bulb. That way the contemporary halogen desk lamps do not take up a lot of room on your desk. Yet even being so small, many contemporary halogen desk lamps have a lot of style.

The only disadvantage to halogen desk lamps is that they can get very hot. So if you decide to buy a halogen desk lamp make sure to place the lamp in a spot on your desk that you will not accidentally hit with your hand while working.

I totally agree with Mira - I like the bankers lamps best, too., They look a lot like the lamp on my own desk, but mine is actually a piano lamp

Great idea to do an article on desk lamps. I like the Banker's ones myself! The Addessos are pretty functional too! Maybe both :-)
