Best Desk Lamp UK

Desk lamps are really important for almost everyone but getting the best desk lamp for your setup earns you extra cool points. While you can usually place whatever lamp you want on your work desk, it is recommended that you don’t place the SpongeBob one where everyone can see it. A good desk lamp should not only lighten up your desk but also look great while doing so.

The best desk lamps for the UK have different designs and will change the whole aesthetic of your desk. The best one for you is the one you love though, as it should be so don’t take our rankings as the last word. We tried to get a lot of different designs and price points on the list so everyone can have some light on their desks.

We have some epic designs on the list as well, they are pieces of art that moonlight as desk lamps. They would look great on any desk, from your home study to your professional desk at the office. There are desk lamps that are amazing for long study sessions as well, a perfect companion during those crunch nights in your hostel room.

BenQ e-Reading LED Desk Lamp

The BenQ e-Reading LED Desk Lamp brings a lot to the table than just light. The lamp is available in different 3 different colors and 2 different configurations. We tested the swing arm design with silver accents and it worked wonderfully. The swing arm adds another dimension to the placement of the lamp and makes it easy to point it where you want. The standard version is also great, providing light with simplicity.

The advanced lighting technology combined with the curved head of the lamp looks stunning but also provides ample light on your desk. If you have a big desk, this is a great lamp for you, even if it can’t reach a certain spot, you can easily move it around thanks to its swing arms. We love how the brightness and the color temperature are both adjustable. You won’t have to worry about eye strain when reading or making paper airplane models under it for long hours. There is no glare or flicker either further making it ideal for long study sessions.

Key features:
  • A unique and beautiful design
  • The swing arms are a great convenience
  • Adjustable color temperature
TaoTronics LED Metallic Lamp

The TaoTronics LED Metallic Lamp is straight to the business lamp that can look great at any office, especially if you love using Apple products. The space gray color of the lamp, its sharp angles, and its sleek design make it a joy to look at. The durable full metal body is suitable for people who are prone to knocking stuff off the desk. Not pointing fingers at the mirror here but personally I’d get this one simply because of its sturdiness.

There are small touches of brilliance on the TaoTronics LED Metallic Lamp as well. Like the touch-sensitive switch that makes virtually zero noise when you turn it on. There is even a 60-minute timer, a night light mode, office desk lamp mode, and even a bedroom desk lamp mode. You can even save your favorite settings and all you need to do is press a button to activate them.

Key features:
  • Simple and easy to use
  • Touch button and memory function
  • Strong and sturdy metallic body
Woputne Desk Lamp

The Woputne Desk Lamp comes with a flexible neck that can be molded into any shape you want. This gives it an extra layer of flexibility and allows it to be placed on almost any desk without issues. The clamp design also helps keep another thing off your already crowded desk. Although we understand that it might not be ideal for some designs that don’t have a protruding edge, in that case, you can clamp it down on a shelf or even a drawer.

The Woputne Desk Lamp is a USB powered lamp as well, this means you can usually run it using the USB port on your laptop. If you have a power bank, the Woputne Desk Lamp works well with that too. The auto turn off feature is amazing as well, double-tap the power button until it turns blue and the lamp will shut down automatically after a minute. This feature comes in really handy when you’ve just watched a scary movie and want to hide under the blanket to be safe from the monsters.

Key features:
  • 3 different lighting modes
  • 10 levels of brightness
  • The memory function is wonderful
Lighting Ever E27 Desk Lamp

In the market for a traditional looking desk lamp that doesn’t cost a lot? The Lighting Ever E27 Desk Lamp is the one made for you. Its classical looks are just like the lamp that kills the “I” in the Pixar logo and would fit any desk with ease. One great feature we loved is the ability to change the bulb ourselves, it is fairly easy to do so as well.

The Lighting Ever E27 Desk Lamp would look right at home with your paper shredder and old school keyboard and mouse setup too. As you can change the bulb to something you like, the whole color and brightness depend on what you desire. We always go for that classical yellow light to study but some people prefer whiter tones, the Lighting Ever E27 Desk Lamp allows you to make no compromise. It is made with quality materials too, making it a sturdy study companion.

Key features:
  • Articulating design is flexible
  • Screw-in bulb holder
  • Classical design suits any desk
Anglepoise Type 75 Desk Lamp

The Anglepoise Type 75 Desk Lamp is a neat looking desk lamp that comes in 3 eye-catching colors. We choose the seagrass one simply because of how soothing it looked. The lamp itself has a classical desk lamp look and even comes with swing arms for optimal positioning.

The matte paint brushed on aluminum gives the lamp a premium look and feel. The shade and arms are all made with aluminum while the chrome-plated fittings are there to add to the whole aesthetic. The Anglepoise Type 75 Desk Lamp comes with a cast iron base that provides a stable platform for the lamp to stand on. This one will look great next to a good printer or even a typewriter if you are into old school styling.

Eyoclean Architect Desk Lamp

The Eyoclean Architect Desk Lamp can be used by everyone and is not exclusively made for architects. We tested ourselves and the lamp worked fine for a simple writer too. The clamp design of the desk lamp keeps clutter away from the table while its superb swing arm style allows you to point the light anywhere you want.

The adjustable temperature is great for multiple use cases, you can even keep it on while you are laying on your recliner chair and reading a light book. Or when you are doing some drawings for your next home improvement project. The simple design, abundant light, and swing arms make the Eyoclean Architect Desk Lamp one of the best desk arms to have.

Key features:
  • Clean and simple clamping design
  • Timer function and reading mode

Fredeko Water Pipe Lamp

This one is just for aesthetic purposes simply because of its industrial design and a unique look. The Fredeko Water Pipe Lamp is made with water pipes and you can use an old school bulb to tie in the visual aesthetics together. The retro design of the lamp is achieved by using high-quality iron that’s spun, cut, ground, polished, and painted. This is a great desk lamp that can work well if you already love steampunk designs.

Key features:
  • Water pipe based design
  • Handmade with actual metal
  • Simple to install and use
Youkoyi LED Desk Lamp

The Youkoyi LED Desk Lamp has a clinical almost sci-fi look to it, and we can’t praise it enough. The clean lines, the pristine color matched with a dimmable lamp makes it a perfect match to any desk.  There are three different brightness levels that you can choose based on your personal preference. The Youkoyi LED Desk Lamp is perfect for any office environment as well making it a great clamp based lamp to gift as well.

The clip-on clamp is super easy to install and move around too. The clamp design also saves room on the tablet itself. The diffusion translucent material used in front of the LEDs gives off a soft light that doesn’t flicker or ghost thus reducing the stress on the eyes. It also comes with a USB cable and can be used with a laptop or even a power bank.

Key features:
  • Swing articulating arms
  • USB powered

The clamps are tool-free and you can easily clamp the lamp even on your bedside table. This is a perfect companion for the times you are just using your tablet to watch a movie instead of doing the assignment and need a nice light in the background.
