What are the desk essentials in today’s high-tech age? Your computer, obviously. Office phones and letter openers depend on your proclivities. The Rolodex and Newton’s cradle are out. Then there’s the desk lamp, the underrated sidekick of any desk jockey.

Whether you’re subject to the lighting whims of an open-concept office or currently rely on your computer screen’s glare for most of your illumination, your eyes will thank you for a more intentionally lit workspace. 

Below, find seven handsomely discounted (and straight-up handsome) workspace lights, categorized by your office aesthetic. Whether you have a soft spot for the iconic bankers lamp or the Pixar lamp, or just want something that will look good on Instagram, we’ve got one for you.
