Table Lamps and Desk Lamps

Table lamps and desk lamps are indoor lighting fixtures that are placed on surfaces for ambient illumination, studying, reading, working, writing or simply as a decorative piece.

Tips on table lamps and desk lamps:

  • Determine in advance how much of the desk or table you want your lamp to light up. The taller the lamp the more area it will light up.
  • A desk light with an adjustable arm gives you the flexibility of manipulation, extension and angling.
  • Remember that effective lighting is best done via layering, which means coordinating your desk or table lamp with other types of lighting such as floor lamps, downlights and natural light.
  • A tall lamp which can be angled is perfect for highlighting a painting or an ornament.
  • Use your table lamps and desk lights for effect! This means choosing one that makes a statement and looks great in the room.
  • By using appropriate table and desk lamps, you can reduce the overhead lighting of the room, thereby giving your home a much softer feel.
  • For a home office, a LED desk lamp with a movable arm and a classic look is perfect.

Types of table and desk lamps:

  • Classic table lamps: these are the classically shaped lamp, with an upright base and a bell shade.
  • Buffet table lamps: these are similar to the classic lamp, but have a narrower base.
  • Torchiere table lamp: these are tall, upright lamps with a bowl-shaped fixture at the top.
  • Swing arm desk lamps: these have a single arm that can be twisted around one point, and moved around.
  • Gooseneck desk lamps: these have a flexible neck to get the best lighting position.
  • Adjustable desk lamps: these can bend their arm at two or more points.
  • Organizer desk lamps: these are smaller, and meant for a work space environment.
  • Clip-on desk lamps: these clip on to the desk while you work.
