shine a light: THE BEST METALLIC TASK LAMPS

Gleaming buys to light up your desk space or reading corner

Bring sophistication to your home office or desk area with a slick metallic task light. With designs that span mid-century style, urban industrial and contemporary sculptural forms, there’s a model to suit most set-ups.

A separate study with a formal working area would be enhanced by something from a leading design name, say Tom Dixon’s iconic Beat light, a classic Anglepoise or Kelly Wearstler’s striking Cleo desk lamp – all of which ooze elegance and would instantly elevate a home office space.

Do you tend to do your life admin from a section of the living room or in a kitchen corner? Then one of the fabulous finds on the High Street, such as the Keegan task lamp from John Lewis or Tubular table lamp from French Connection would be a perfect purchase. Their slimline frames take up little space and they can be easily moved around, depending on whether you’re paying bills, working at home or curling up in your favourite armchair to read a book.

If your preference is for a laptop on the sofa and something altogether less ‘office-y’, then it has to be Kartell’s Taj mini. It’s unusual shape belies the fact it’s even a lamp, so when you’re relaxing rather than working, it will stand out in your room like a stylish sculpture.
