Our office tends to get really dark. If you sit in a particularly shadowy corner, you need some extra lighting, unless you want to squint, which ruins your vision and gives you crow's feet, your mother told you for the millionth time. Crate and Barrel's red Task Lamp is a classic way to add a pop of colour and a much-needed splash of light to your space.
The $US50 piece architect's lamp is a timeless piece that you could hold onto for years to come. It's a style that's been around forever and won't be one of those things you look at in two years and wonder what you were thinking. Plus, it's inexpensive enough that it's an easy way to update your decor. [Refinery29]
