Task Lamps

Perfect for a work desk or bedside table, Pottery Barn’s task lamps blend form and function, allowing you to shine a light on the important things while augmenting the quality of your interior decor. Whether for home or office, these lamps offer a sharp-looking solution to any tabletop lighting need. With a variety of different styles and colors to choose from, our task lamps can satisfy even the most discerning design sensibilities.

With design options ranging from the utilitarian contemporary to the antique inspired, our task lamps are more than just a pretty face. Most of our options allow you to aim light in a specific direction, perfect for illuminating any work surface, whether you’re typing away on a laptop or working with old school with a pen and paper. These lamps are best for lighting up a small area rather than providing a wash of light to illuminate an entire room. Short and compact, they’re perfect for tabletop surfaces that have a collection of other items, be it books, papers or decorative objects. Made with materials such as iron and mercury glass, our task lamps offer a high-quality way of relieving eye strain and casting a light into the darkness. Choose a model that suits you and then select from a variety of finishes, from hand-painted antiquing to solid color.
