Desk Lamp Trend

Please join us in welcoming Caitlin Flemming from Sacramento Street as one of our new contributors. We're so excited to have her! Take it away Caitlin...

At the moment, I’m obsessed with desk lighting – it’s probably because I’m one of those designers that would rather have good table lighting on than an overhead light during the day. Let’s say goodbye fluorescent lighting, shall we? There are tons of desk lamp styles to choose from – industrial, modern, contemporary, traditional, the list could go on and on. I’ve chosen two of my current favorite desk lamps to highlight in this “get the look” feature.

There are a lot of things to love about this workspace (above) – my favorite is a pharmacy-style desk lamp. I’ve got to say that if you want to get this look, the Bruno desk lamp (below) is an honorable take on a 1933 design manufactured by the Kaiser Company in Germany.

The rich bronze finish makes it a stand out piece. Having this light on your desk is bound to get your creativity going.

Mid Century Desk Lamp

Want a more modern and iconic desk lamp? The Draper is perfect for you. This mid-century retro and classic style (above) is one lamp that I find a lot of clients and friends looking for – it’s luckily sold right here.

What I love even more about this version (above) is that it has two lights, which can illuminate your desk with either one or both lights one. It’s a must have if this is your style.

What kind of desk lamp are you coveting for your workspace?
