How to Choose the Best Desk Lamp

A desk lamp is an important part of any good lighting scheme, so choosing the right one for your home or work space should be considered carefully.

The main purpose of desk lighting is to direct light onto your work area. This is known as task lighting. However, sometimes desk lamps are chosen purely on their appearance, and how well their design matches with an interior.

Finding a style that matches your interior is a good place to start, when choosing a new desk lamp. For example, if you have a modern interior, you will want to find a matching contemporary desk lamp. You could even try and match the materials used in the desk lamp to the materials used in your living space. This could include metal finishes used onfurniture or wooden flooring.

Of course, you need to factor in functionality, as well as style. Your desk lamp should match your decor, whilst providing a useful task light. A great option for meeting both of these needs is the iconic and quintessentially British, Anglepoise range.

The Anglepoise® brand produces an incomparable series of practical, yet stylish, energy-efficient, desk lamps, which are available in a number of colours to match any interior.

Finally, for efficiently lighting a large desk area, you will need a taller desk lamp. This will ensure that the light will cover the entire work area of your desk. You may also consider a desk light that can mounted on a wall or clamped to your desk top, to give you more desk space.
