November 28, 2008, Newsletter Issue #143: Banker's Lamps

Tip of the Week

The classic "banker's lamp" is a brass desk lamp with a green glass shade. Popular in banks in the early 20th century, they're still frequently found in formal office environments.

Today the banker's lamp has been updated with a range of attractive glass and metal shades. Choose a chrome lamp for a modern look, or an art glass shade for a creative touch that's still office-friendly. Banker's lamps evolved because of a need for task lighting, and are still an excellent choice if you have the desk space.
