For anyone working from home at a desk, be it school work, a home-based business or just the occasional paperwork it’s important that the right level of lighting is available to prevent eye strain. Many desks, when used in homes, frequently occupy a corner of a room which can often be poorly lit by the main room lighting. Desk lighting in the form or a desk reading lamps helps to illuminate these dimly lit corners providing the right level of light.


Desk reading lamps, or desk lamps in general, can often be referred to as ‘task lighting’. This simply means that they provide lighting for a specific task, such as reading, by creating additional focused light. Task lighting can take many forms and is not simply limited to desk lamps. The term can also encompass floor lamps such as the ‘mother and child’ variety which not only increase general lighting but also provide an adjustable focused light.
