Desk lamps are portable tabletop lamps which can sit on a desk or table. They usually direct their light downwards so that they can be used for tasks such as reading, crafts or paperwork. The light from a desk lamp usually shines off to one side, rather than directly over the lamp base, so that it can optimally light up your desk area. Desk lamps are also often adjustable to place the light where you need it. Being portable they can simply be plugged into a wall socket. Great for work activities or for crafts and hobbies.
The light bulb in this item features full-spectrum technology. The spectrum of light output is similar to sunlight. White light actually contains multiple color frequencies combined together, and by representing as many frequencies as possible the light is a 'full spectrum' of frequencies. Typically full-spectrum bubs produce very white light which is also natural. The benefit is that it reduces glare and eye-strain, increases contrast for reading, and colors are represented more accurately.
A reading lamp typically sits next to or behind a chair. It features an arm or lamp head which arcs over the side or back of the chair, focusing its light downwards. This allows you to read comfortably with bright light when seated. Positioning the light behind or to the side also reduces glare. Reading lamps tend to be shorter than regular floor lamps because they're designed to be used for reading when sitting down. Most reading lamps are also adjustable and they produce a comfortable natural light. They've also great for crafts, hobbies and artistic projects.
Informal and comfortable, this relaxed style accentuates an airy and unpretentious living space, evoking the feeling of a permanent beach cottage vacation. Casual Lighting uses clean and simple lines, subtle curves, natural textures, and decorative glass for a subtle elegance that doesn’t overwhelm the senses.
Task lighting places a stronger light in one area of the room. Very good for tasks when you're sitting nearby. Most lamps can be used as task lights and can be quickly switched on when needed. Great for reading, crafts and hobbies. They also work well to light up one area of a room, e.g. on either side of a couch or in the corners of a room. Most of the light is directed downwards and out to the sides.
A desk lamp is best used with a desk or table, or next to a bed or seating area. Ideally in an office or work area, in living rooms, bedrooms, family rooms and guest rooms.
A desk lamp is best suited for desk, writing and office areas, on side-tables and accent furniture. They're likely to live closer to the edges of the room providing local light. You should add other light fixtures or lamps as well to create appropriate levels of light in the room.
Portable, sits on a surface via the lamp base. Covers a relatively small area, can be placed on desks, tables, shelves and other furniture.
Plug the desk lamp into a regular power outlet socket and switch it on.
Shipped promptly. The lamp worked well.
I love this lamp! It is incredibly bright and the color is great (not blue or yellow, white like the sun!). We have been using it during the winter when we do our school work in the morning. It keeps me calm and relaxed but also physically brightens our space and just makes a huge difference for us. We don't often turn the lamp all the way up in brightness, but the color provides good energy! It is substantial in size: both fairly heavy and takes up a good amount of space on the table. Shipping was incredibly fast from LampsUSA!
The trim on the lamp is defective with several blemishes in the bright finish.
Dealing with Denise at Lamps USA has been excellent for resolution of the problem.
I had a Blue Max 40W desk lamp and used it for many years. I tried to repait it with a new ballast, but ended up ordering a new lamp. It's a 70W and bigger than my original one, so will take some getting used to, but I'm glad to have my Blue Max back., b
It’s bright enough to light small, detailed artwork, and can be dimmed enough to appreciate what one has created. I love it!
Purchased for my wife to help get through our long and gray winters. So far so good! Well made product.
The lights are indeed bright but the bulb-clip is poorly made and non-supportive. after stretching the clip to fit better, I had to tie the ends together to keep the bulb secured. (In summery: the bulb-clip is too short.)
Purchased BlueMax 1-Light Full Spectrum Desk Lamp Black.
I'm very satisfied with product and delivery service.
These are great lights. I use these in an industrial environment for extra lighting for a inspection process. Work great and have held up nicely.
