Office desk lamps
Modern office desk lamps are interesting in that they not only play the vital role of providing light for a work surface but also add a point of interest and a stylish accent to a home office. The best office lamp is the one that gives off the kind of light you need for your work. That can mean a direct light, similar to a spotlight, or a diffused light spreading across the entire work area. Adjustability can be an important feature for a home office desk lamp, providing you with the opportunity to fine-tune the intensity of the light for your needs. The Original 1277 Task Lamp sold by Design Within Reach is a legendary lamp with two arms fitted with springs that allow the user to move the lamp head to an endless variety of positions. A table lamp for office desks, like the Ode Desk Lamp from Herman Miller, gives off a diffused light that spreads across a wide area of the work surface.
How to choose an office desk lamp
Desk lamps for home offices come in a wide range of styles and functionalities. An LED desk lamp is a popular choice, and many lamps these days are powered by LED bulbs, which provide good light and use up far less electricity than conventional incandescent bulbs. Desk lamps come in many sizes so even a modest sized office can be equipped with a small office desk lamp. A wall mounted desk lamp is a great option for small desks with little room for a freestanding lamp. Many such lamps have long adjustable arms to aid in getting the light where it is needed. Another space-saving option is a clamp desk lamp, which requires just a small area at the edge of a table or desk. Like wall-mounted lamps, a clamp desk lamp typically has a long adjustable arm to aid in aiming the light.
