I happen to think that office lighting is probably the most important aspect of any office when it comes to practicality as well as to décor. Office lighting not only allows you to illuminate your work space effectively but it also can add a distinct ambience and style to your office or cubicle environment. (Don't miss my YouTube video further down!)
I discovered this years ago when a coworker of mine had an office cubicle that resembled a plush home office with a standing lamp in the corner that illuminated the space with a soft yet practical lighting. It was like you were walking into his home office and it truly inspired me to introduce effective office lighting into my own work space!
I’ve been using a sunlight desk lamp in my home office and in my cubicle at work for a number of years now and decided to upgrade. Believe me, I love the sunlight desk lamp which I wrote about in this article but after viewing the TaoTronics Metal Desk Lamp LED online with its 5 color modes, 6 dimmable levels, 60 minute timer, favorite function, night mode, and USB port, I decided to take the plunge and buy one for both my home office and cubicle at work.

To be perfectly honest I am so glad that I did! It’s also a #1 Best Seller on Amazon with 94% – 5 star reviews, 5% – 4 star reviews, and 1% – 3 star reviews. I really didn’t realize what a desk lamp could actually do these days as my existing desk lamp had an on/off switch with one type of light illuminated. The TaoTronics Metal Desk Lamp LED has so many settings and unique features that it makes it worth the higher price tag. Here is a quick breakdown of the features in the screenshot below.
The features seen above are numerous when it comes to this TaoTronics Metal Desk Lamp LED. What isn't even shown above is the fact that there is a USB slot on the left hand side of the unit which I use to charge my phone at home and at work! Let's look at the features in detail below.

I've used this awesome desk lamp at home and at work (since I bought two!) for about 3 weeks now and I absolutely love it! It is so easy for me to recommend this office lighting accessory for your home or work office. I can't tell you how many comments I have had at work from my coworkers on this very stylish and highly-effective desk lamp. The added bonus of the USB slot for charging my phone made this purchase a no-brainer for me.
