We spend more time at our desks these days than ever before, and desk space are fast becoming essential ‘zones’ to be planned within our homes. However how much time do we spend actually styling our desk space as we do endlessly for other areas of our homes?

Essential office furniture – like a good desk chair are must haves, but looking slightly further at say a vintage globe or a retro desk lamp can make your work station somewhere that you actually enjoy spending time and proudly display, along with the rest of your treasured ‘statement pieces’ that say something about your impeccable taste for home interiors!

Here’s a selection of some of the finest examples of retro lamps we like.
