One of the downfalls of being a freelancer is that you’re often just working solo, probably from the spare room / study and don’t have much call to leave the house, especially when the weather’s as miserable as it has been recently. Add to that the clocks going back the other weekend and now it’s dark outside even earlier.
So with that in mind, I’ve been thinking lighting and more specifically lamps and even more specifically, desk lamps (I do work from a desk, so it makes sense!).
What I hadn’t expected was the vast array of lamp designs and styles – upright necked, jointed, goosenecked or even keyboard lights. Once you’ve sorted that, then you need to consider the type of bulb!? Thankfully what could be a potential nightmare is made so much easier with websites like ShopWiki.com that crawl the internet looking for the best shopping deals.
I found several fantastic looking desk lamps, but they were all from shoppers in the US… the hunt continues!
