Once upon a time, my studio desk had a great task lamp attached to it, and it has disappeared. Which could be a sad tale, but I found this great lamp in the as-is section at Ikea and it was a perfect replacement. It has a super heavy base on it, so I don't have to worry about it toppling of when I extend the neck or if I tilt my desk slightly.
Not to metion, at 50% off just for being the display model, the price was right:
The only thing that may not be right is the color. Which is a little strange, since gray almost always equals perfection in our home. In the studio, maybe. Or maybe this lamp could be one more little pop of color. Either way, it's up to you whether we paint it and what we paint it.
I don't have a poll today because I didn't want you to be locked into just a couple colors. Feel free to sound off any color you would love to see the lamp painted (refer to this post to see a wider shot of the room as it is now) and I'm sure I'll find the right spray paint to match. Or, if you think gray is gold and it is perfect just the way it is, then let us know that, too! Can't wait to see where we land.
