When it comes to your workspace, a little playfulness really can't hurt. Your desk might not be your fave spot in your home (it's hard to compete with your couch and your bed) but with some fun touches, it can be a space that you actually look forward to being productive in. A colorful, interesting light can make a huge difference, so it's all about finding a task lamp that works for your style.
These unique desk lamps will give your workspace a fun vibe, but they're still totally practical, so they won't get in the way of you getting sh*t done, either. And a few of these will work especially well in children's rooms — you know, to make them dread their homework a little bit less.
Sleek, industrial, and a totally interesting spin on the standard desk light.
The globe light, the pop of color on top, and the pattern on the base make this lamp (which comes in multiple color and pattern combos) so much fun.
Go ahead, add a little kitschy playfulness to your workspace with this minimalist, metal take on a black cat.
If a subtle, calming color that still feels whimsical is what you seek, then this lavender metal and wood desk lamp is exactly what you need.
Looking at this bright, apple-green desk lamp is like pounding a shot of espresso: instantly energizing. Minus the caffeine jitters.
You really can't go wrong with this classic style, and the minty hue definitely makes a statement.
Fun doesn't have to mean colorful — sometimes it means playing with textures, like this lamp with its wooden base and round metal cage light.
You can also get this lamp in blue or green, but this bright red really speaks for itself.
This lamp comes from IKEA's children's lighting section, so it's perfect for kids' rooms — but I still think it can work in a grown-up room, too.
Another fun kids' room find: this adjustable pink flower lamp (complete with a base perfect for holding pens!) perfect for reading and schoolwork.
