By Room: Home Office Inspiration

20 September 2022

As work environments modernise to suit 21st century living, creating a light and bright productive working environment at home has never been more important. Through recent times we have had to transform dining tables into meeting rooms, spare rooms into office space and even bring our laptops and notes into our gardens to get work done. This modern way of life therefore needs modern light solutions that will adapt from homely warming lighting to purposeful task lighting.

Here at David Village Lighting we have a wide range of pendants, wall lights, table lamps and floor lamps that would transform your everyday home into a high functioning work environment. As well as providing the perfect light for working, our lights also bring a designer touch to your home and allow this space to not only be functional but also calming and tranquil.

Take a look at the many different ways you can use light to transform your home...

Flexible Work Space

With busy working lives comes busy working spaces and homes. Being able to move and adapt to work in any area of your home gives you the freedom to create the perfect environment wherever you are. From coffee table to dining table, outdoors and in, by using portable lighting solutions it has never been easier to work from home and away.

Here are some of our top picks for your flexible work space...

Astep Nox LED Portable Table Lamp

The Astep Nox portable table lamp is a playful design that provides a soft calming 360 degree light. The opal glass lampshade diffuses the light to create a diffused indirect lighting solution for your work space. This not only adds a soft light ideal for reading and task work, but due to the opal glass shade, the Nox portable table lamp is completely glare free.

At the very essence of this lamp is its ability to be picked up and taken to wherever it is needed. The wireless induction charging system allows this highly versatile lamp to be easily placed down to charge and picked up to use anywhere in your home or outdoors.

This small but powerful portable lamp can bring the perfect working environment anywhere you go. With 15 hours of light in one charge, it can last you a whole working day and more! The Nox can be beautifully dimmed and brightened so you can work late into the night with ease.

Vibia Mayfair Mini LED Portable Table Lamp

The classic Vibia Mayfair collection was inspired by the ornate Bouillotte lamp used to perfectly illuminate card tables in France. This, therefore, makes the design ideal for lightening up your workspace. The latest addition to the Mayfair range is the Mayfair Mini LED Portable table lamp that allows you to take the perfect lighting solution anywhere you need it.

The charge can last up to 24 hours, giving you plenty of light for multiple work days in your home.

Verpan Pantop LED Portable Table Lamp

The Pantop Portable was derived from the original Pantop designed in the 1980s by legendary designer Verner Panton. Just as our working lives have evolved to suit modern living, so has the Pantop! This new portable version now allows you to charge the lamp up and have beautiful glare-free light for hours on end. With its wireless nature comes the freedom that it gives you. Place this lamp at your desk, dining table, countertop, or even in your outdoor space to create the perfect working environment wherever you are.

This retro design produces an idyllic downward light perfect for taking notes and reading. The Pantop Portable LED table lamp is also available in a wide range of colours, from minimalist greys and whites to bold 80s colours that create a statement.

Lighting solutions for a work-life balance

Bringing work home can quickly make your tranquil space a stressful place that doesn't allow you to switch off and relax. However, through adaptable lighting solutions, you can now transform your space quickly from a productive workspace in the day and then back to the cosy relaxing living space in the evening. Most of us are working at our dining tables, kitchen islands, living rooms, and spare rooms. This makes it difficult to create a clear separation between work and home. Through adaptable lighting you can create this separation and keep your home a home.

Here are some of our suggestions for adaptable lighting solutions for working at home...

Flos 265 Chromatica Wall Light

The 265 wall light was designed by Paolo Rizzatto in 1973 with the aim of 'decentralising' a room and creating a wall light both beautiful and functional. More recently Flos launched the 265 Chromatica Wall Light that brings bold colour to this classic design. The retro style wall light can be easily moved and adjusted with the simple push of a finger. This makes it ideal for adding a task light to an area of your house that is usually dimly lit or doesn't have the perfect lighting for work.

Dedicated Work Spaces

By transforming the spare room or bringing a desk into your room, a dedicated space for work is now a common addition to any new home. With a purposeful work environment comes the addition of purposeful and beautiful lighting. These lighting solutions can create a productive atmosphere to aid concentration and focus.

Task Lighting

A common lighting solution for offices is task lighting. This form of lighting is highly functional and provides a direct focused light that is ideal for reading and task based work. Known for their functionality, task lighting can also be a beautiful addition to your home. The retro and mechanical background that task lighting comes from has created some of the most iconic lamps such as the Anglepoise 1227 desk lamp range and the Artemide Tizio collection. This means that you can have a work based task light that also adds a designer touch to your space.

Here are some of our favourite task lights for you to choose from...
