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.
Industrial Lamp in Brooklyn, New York
An aluminum shade and painted brass base make up this adorable 1920s/30s desk lamp.
Find it on Chip?auto=format’s Corner. $75.
Vintage Nautical or Mining Lamp in Portland, Oregon
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.”

A classic 1970s desk lamp designed by Peter Hamburger and commissioned by Kovacs for Knoll International.

A simple cone lamp with a wooden stand is clean and classic.
