LAMPS PLUS Blog Policies
While kids usually don't want to sit down at a desk and get cracking on homework after a long summer off, dressing up their study space could help entice them to it. Mixing function with design, these fun and distinctive desk lamps will surely be on your back to school lighting essentials list.
Clamp lamps are a tried and true solution to get optimum desk light. Give your clamp lamp a stylish upgrade with a bright color or a fun retro shape. If you can't find a stylish clamp lamp, get one in white spray paint it your favorite color.
If you have a smaller workspace and need to save room, try hanging a fun pendant overhead. You can find pendant lights that do not need to be wired and have an on/off switch, which makes for a super simple upgrade. For younger kids pair together brightly colored pendant lights and for your older child try a fashion forward print.
Inspiring your children to read more than just assigned books is a great way to inspire their minds and get them away from the computer and TV. Make sure your kids have a good task lamp at the side of their bed, and utilizing a super stylish retro floor lamp will help to encourage the reading bug.
