Maxwell Desk Lamp from Pottery Barn

Maxwell Desk Lamp from Pottery Barn

Looking for a new task lamp can be a very boring proposition. It's easy to assume that there's nothing new under the sun and just go with the first decent-looking apparatus at the nearest home store, but this one from Pottery Barn (not the first place we usually look) caught our eye.

The half-hexagon shape distinguishes it from similar vintage versions (searching for a vintage task lamp, now, that is our idea of a good time, but that's another story altogether), and the broad shade lends a bit of industrial chic.
