The gooseneck desk lamp is perhaps one of the most common and popular desk lamps on the market. They are also one of the most versatile and useful types as they are very flexible and can be used to highlight any area you choose very easily.
They come in many different shapes, sizes and styles, ranging from the very simple lamp to designer models. What is commonly referred to as the student lamp, is the most simple and least expensive of all. Usually these come with a round metal shade that is colourful. You can buy it in almost any color you like, including pastel, although often they are black, white or grey colored.
If you are looking for Gooseneck table lamps for your office desk, you may want to consider something a little more chic. I have seen very nice gooseneck desk lamps made from satin steel and from chrome as well. Both of these materials fit well with an office environment. They come in many different styles as well, some have larger shades, some have tiny shades yet they all perform well.
Taking it one step further, you can basically find these type of lamps in any style at all, ranging from expensive brass lamps to retro lamps. One interesting style of lamp I have seen include a built in device. Some have MP3 players built into the base of the lamp, others have a clock built in. Still others sport USB connectors. Costs are higher for these type of lamps, as well as for designer lamps, although not too much more expensive. For example a student gooseneck lamp may cost around $25, however one that includes either an MP3 player or Ethernet ports are only $50.
If you are thinking about purchasing a new desk lamp, I would highly recommend you look into buying a gooseneck lamp.
