However, to simplify your shopping experience further, here are some FAQs that you may want to go through while selecting a suitable lamp for your office desk.

How do I choose an office lamp?

What needs do you want the product to fulfil- appropriate lighting for video calls, utilising desk space efficiently, functioning as a clock or enhancing the visual appearance of your space are some of the factors you can think about to find the lamp that aligns with your specific needs. 

How Big Should a lamp be on a table?

The lamp you choose should be in accordance with the size & space of your desk. For smaller desks, the i GEAR LED lamp or the Panasonic LED lamp are the right fit. If you have more space to spare, you can go for the IKEA desk lamp or Philips Orbit Colour Changing Lamp.  

What kind of lamp do you use for a desk?

LED lamps that provide direct lighting are appropriate for desks. An LED lamp with 5-10 wattage is recommended for sufficient lighting for working. 

What is the best lighting for working on a computer?

Ambient, glare-free and overhead lighting is best for working on computers. We’ve provided both options, a bulb lamp as well as LED lamps with adjustable modes so that you can pick your desired lighting.
