Shopping for Desk Lamps – The New York Times


Since the pandemic struck, improvised home offices have been put through their paces. If your work-from-home setup is ready for an upgrade, the right desk lamp is a good place to start.

Beyond providing light exactly where it’s needed, “the task light becomes one of the things that creates your little work office at home,” said Clive Wilkinson, a Los Angeles-based architect who has designed corporate spaces for companies like Microsoft and Intuit. “It’s a spatial thing — it lights up an area where you’re working, and makes it separate and different from the rest of the home.”

The best desk lamps used to have long articulating arms that were highly adjustable, Mr. Wilkinson said, but now that most people’s work involves less paper, something more compact will usually suffice.

“You can have a light source that’s only 18 inches off the desk,” he said. “It makes the new options much more interesting.”
