Welcome to the daily series “In Search Of,” where we look high and low on Krrb for one-of-a-kind items that we must have now! Today, it’s all about reading lamps and we’ve got loads of them.

There’s nothing cozier than flipping on a reading lamp and having a bit of time to yourself, curled into a blanket and slowly paging through a brand-new novel. Reading lights can sit atop desks or stand alongside a table. Here are a few we love.

A great quote from the owner of this lamp: “It was oil-burning but has since been converted to electric, which is brilliant because as I learned the hard way, burning oil smells like nightmares.”

  • What a great collection! I love the variety. Those reading nooks at the top look to die for, I just want to snuggle in :)
