We recently extolled the virtues of balancing and layering lights in the workspace, and Etsy comes to the rescue once again with a wide variety of unique, handmade lamps and lampshades, crafted by artisans just for you. From comic books to ultra-modern wood, there's something for everyone.

Top Row:

  • Origami Paper Lamp ($45) by glowdecor - Made of unfinished bass and pine wood, and solid color origami paper, this lamp is a stylish, subtle option.
  • Comic Covers lampshade (€45,00 EUR) by SpookyShades - Features four different Golden Age comic covers, each with a different kick-butt lady.
  • Typemazing Lamp ($50) by Joicetotheworld - This clever design holds a typeface that reveals itself upon careful perusal.
  • Spinosaurus Dinosaur Lamp ($45) by destructivetesting - Crafted from a wooden puzzle, this would work equally well in a child's room or in an adult's.
  • Vintage Typewriter Secret Message Lantern ($38) by czechpub - This cool typewriter image hides a secret. When illuminated, the paper shows a secret message of your choice!

Bottom Row:

  • 8x8 Wolf Forest Light Box ($125) by evolvinghabitat - Made from sustainable knotty walnut wood, this lightbox can be hung or stood unencumbered on a desk or table.
  • Modern Square Wood Table Lamp ($75) by AtomicAttic - This handmade blonde lamp adds a natural, contemporary element to any desk decor.
  • Upcycled Aluminum Exit Sign Light Box ($50) by AtomicAttic - An actual Exit light that's been converted to a light box, so that it rests easily on a desk surface.
  • The Menlo Park Lamp - Single Edison Bulb in Walnut ($90) by TheDaperLlama - Carved from solid walnut, each element, from the replica Edison bulb to the power switch and cord, is designed to evoke a vintage feel.
  • Cube Night Lamp ($39) by blackgizmo - This 20cm cube would be a great ambient light for any office or bedroom.
