Why We Love Office Library Lamps
In the home office, a lamp is necessary for the amount of light it brings to the room as well as its decorative nature. Similar to desk and task lamps, library lamps are simply at home in the office or the study where they are found providing light for tasks ranging from paying bills to checking off items on your weekly to-do list. In home offices or business offices away from the home, a modern library lamp is welcomed and appreciated.
Office lighting is typically comprised of task-oriented forms of illumination. From overhead ceiling lights like recessed lighting or a linear pendant to a bright desk lamp or an ambient library lamp, these fixtures all lend themselves to helping you get the job done with just the right amount of light. Library lamps are especially useful in the office as they work to supplement lighting from other fixtures in the room. On the desk, the filing cabinet or in the corner of the office on the floor, you'll be sure to enjoy the presence of one of these lamps.
A Library Lamp For Every Style
Although they are formally named library lamps, they are in no way quiet in their appearance or stylish appeal. From sleek library desk lamps to well-designed floor lamps, you'll have no problem working one of these fixtures into your office. Hudson Valley Lighting's line of office lamps encompass the traditional look of a library lamp and are well-suited to traditionally decorated work spaces. The line includes a selection of tall floor lamps and elegant table lamps to place on your desktop. To fit a Scandinavian-themed office, look to the lamps in the Arne Jacobsen collection from Louis Poulsen. George Kovacs' lamps fit a transitional office and check out the Robert Abbey selection for a similar assortment of colors and finishes. Finally, for the energy efficient home office, opt for an LED library lamp from Koncept.
Choosing The Best Library Lamp
Thanks to their portability, introducing a table or floor lamp to your office is a relatively easy choice. However, there are still a few things you need to consider. First, decide where you plan to place a lamp. Floor lamps are best positioned in the corner of the room where they can offer supplemental light throughout the space. Meanwhile, library table lamps happily sit atop your desk or storage cabinet. You'll also want to determine how bright of a lamp your office needs. If it's bright and focused light you need, you'll want an LED library lamp. Conversely, halogen library lamps offer warm, ambient light. Be sure to see the fixture's lumen rating to best gauge how bright you can expect it to be. With a style and function in mind, you're ready to refine your choices by finishes and colors that are most appropriate for the room.

Other areas of the home benefit from the presence of library lamps too. In the living room, instead of a traditional pair of table lamps, consider placing library lamps on either side of the sofa. Or use this style of lamp on top of the grand piano to cast a helpful amount of light on your sheet of music. Lamps are also essential to the bedside when sconces or other forms of reading light are not readily available. Check out the complete assortment of modern desk lamps for more options to introduce to your work space and look to the office furniture category if it's a new desk or task chair you need to give the room a refreshed appearance. With the right combination of lighting and furniture in your office, you'll be ready to get to work in no time.
