Desk lamps form an important part and role to any workspace and/or home office, and serve not only as a practical tool for drafting board work for example, but also as an ambient light source and even an item of furniture.

Therefore a good desk lamp must be highly functional as well as aesthetically pleasing, and there are plenty of products available that do none of these!

How to pick the Best Office Lamp for your needs?

Since this list is focused strictly on desk lamps, we will leave budget-free lighting fixtures in the application of a multi-light study/reading area to another article, or any other furniture for that matter.

We will also not be concerned with the requirements of aesthetic decorum, as these are subjective and subjective factors in terms of taste are as such largely irrefutable.

Firstly, of the products listed today, there are two distinctly different types of lamps that are worth mentioning:

  • Dimmable LED Desk lamps
  • Non-Dimmable LED Desk lamps

The obvious deciding factor between these options is the ability to dim – in this case dimmable.

What does that even mean? For the dimmable versions, to be able to dim the light emitted, there must be a dimmer control on the lamp itself, which will allow you to set to a comfortable level.

The non-dimmable lamps do not have a dimmer control option and simply have a lightbulb where you can control the brightness by adjusting the position of the lamp relative to the source.

Aesthetically speaking, I prefer having the flexibility to dim the light emitted.

However, there are certainly some beautiful dimmable lamps out there that don’t cost a fortune.

I’ve also found that some of the non-dimmable lamps out there have the same great features and look that the dimmable ones do, so you really do not have to compromise.

At the end of the day, a well made and well designed electric lamp is always going to look good regardless of your situation or taste. If you have a dimmable desk lamp you can still adjust the brightness of the light.

This product was recommended by Daniel Carter from Zippy Electrics

This classic-looking steel lamp is really adjustable. It has three lamp arm hinges, a tall spring-loaded arm that rotates 180 degrees, and a lamp head that rotates 360 degrees so you can aim the light anywhere. It’s also really stable with a heavy base to prevent toppling. Unlike other modern office lamps, there’s no confusing touch interface to tap or slide your fingers across, just an on/off switch on the cord next to the base.

When searching for a new desk lamp for my home office, I knew I wanted something that had color temperature adjustment.

I particularly enjoy its memory feature, which turns the lamp on at the last-used brightness and color settings instead of reverting to defaults. The TaoTronics LED Desk Lamp with Qi-Enabled Wireless Charger is a solid choice if you want fine control over the color temperature of your light, how bright it is, and where it’s focused.

Its head easily pivots and shines light in any direction that you need it. These LEDs are rated to last 20 years (assuming 3 hours use/day) because they don’t waste energy like halogen, CFL, and incandescent bulbs.

This product was recommended by Christopher Terry from Archisoup

The BenQ screen bar plus is a unique LED lamp that sits unobtrusively on top of any desktop monitor, leaving the office desk space clear and unobstructed.
