under $100: design-friendly desk lamps

hgtv.ca is visiting d*s headquarters (aka, my living room and home office) tomorrow so i’m feeling a little self-conscious about my work space. i’ve been trying to find ways to spruce things up a bit without spending more than $25 so mostly i’ve been rearranging things and bringing some of my prettier potted plants into the room. one thing i wish i could have found in time for their visit is a new desk lamp, so i decided to make the focus of my next mylifescoop post “design-friendly desk lamps under $100!” i rounded up 30+ of my favorite task and desk-appropriate lamps that will help you work (and highlight your cute desktop accessories). in addition to the lamps, i also added in some cute cord management solutions and well-designed charging solutions. i hope you’ll enjoy the roundup!

Where can we buy the lamp in the bottom right square of this post? They look brilliant!


The link is not working for me; I think you forgot the “l” in html

I loved the Industrial Task Table Lamp from West Elm. Sadly, when I clicked on the link and redirected to West Elm it said the lamp was no longer available.

And I had my credit card out and everything ;-)



oh no! i’m so sorry- it was available last week :(

i’ll email west elm and see what happened- maybe they sold out. i know it was really popular.




i’ll look into that- ive never seen super cute cordless ones before sadly :(



Psst… the “click here” link still isn’t working — I think it’s missing the ‘l’ at the end?


There are some great choices here! I am about to work on an bill-paying office apace too!


Has anyone ever seen a Banker’s lamp with a translucent black top to it? I have seen green (the standard), blue and now white, but I’d really like a black one and have no idea where to look.


Thank you so much for this! Perfect timing as I decided to re-organize my desk last weekend and was looking for a new desk lamp. Just got one of the last 6 Lasso Lamps at C&B SoHo yesterday. :)
