When you need to get things done, but want to add some style, energy-efficient piano lamps and banker lights will help with both. These lamps are two variations on the same basic idea - a wide-beam desk lamp that provides bright but soft task lighting. The piano light dates back before the days of electricity when an inventor placed a cover on the back of a candle to reduce glare on sheet music. Banker table lamps followed in the early 1900s, adopting the concept for working with money and numbers. Both are a cool retro lighting option for the home that also remains practical for their original purposes.
Light for Business & Pleasure
Add stylish task lighting to your desk, piano, art easel or workbench by shopping at Destination Lighting online or visiting a showroom. We have traditional piano/banker lamps that maintain the classic industrial look and modern piano lights that give them a smooth minimalist spin. There are lamps with the base on the back or to the side of the fixture along with clip-on piano lamps that attached directly to desk lips and music stands. The green banker lamp with a brass stand has long been the accepted design, and we carry plenty of those. However, there are also black, white, nickel and chrome banker lights that mix things up.
Find Your New Favorite Desk Lamp
All of these lamps provide time-tested task lighting that will help you see as you play music, count money, read a book or answer text messages. A metal or glass wide dome shade focuses the light downward and prevents "leaking" to reduce glare. Adjustable banker lamps can be moved up or down to change the light spread. If you want to lower your utility bills, energy-efficient piano lights will do so. Destination Lighting has free U.S. shipping on most orders with everyday savings for those who need new lights.
