From sleek modern LED models to old fashioned incandescent bulb lamps, a good task light not only makes an obvious difference in the illumination department, but also consider how adding one on top of the desk can be a decorative opportunity. Amy Feezor of Herman Miller's Lifework blog shared her 6 top picks...

  • Binic Lamp: The wind socks of ships served as inspiration for the shape of designer Ionna Vautrin's soft spotlight-like lamp. Get it: momastore.org
  • Flute Personal Light: With its up-to-date LED technology, Flute provides high-quality light output at an amazingly low cost: about $1.13 a year. Get it: hermanmiller.com
  • Excel Desk Lamp: Add color (and a little gloss) to your workspace with the spare, economical form of the Excel. Get it: rollandhill.com
  • Ovelo: Designer Stephan Copeland reimagined an iconic design-the classic L-1 architect lamp by Luxo (also known as Pixar's mascot)-to create this unique LED task light for the modern office. Get it: luxous.com
  • Terea: The easy elegance of Terea combines energy-efficient LEDs, ergonomics, and compact design. Get it: luxous.com
