Whether you work from home, do creative work or study, it’s important to create a good working environment at home. A home office should feel comfortable to be in, but you must also be able to work productively and concentrate – and lighting plays a central role here. This is why we would like to offer you our top tips on how to create the right lighting in your home office.
Besides natural light, you should always consider having good general ceiling lighting in the office, as this helps prevent fatigue. For this, we can recommend large decorative pendants such as Uma, Grant or Rice Paper, which emit glare-free lighting throughout the entire room. If, however, space is limited, ceiling lights are very useful – they also emit good functional lighting throughout the room and do not take up unnecessary space.
Likewise, indirect lighting behind you from a wall, floor or small table lamp is also important, as it creates a pleasant atmosphere and provides more light in the room so you can better concentrate during the day. A good example for this purpose is the Clyde, which is ideal for an office because the light can be adjusted as needed for the intended activity.
Above all, it’s important to have the right lamp at your work station when you are sitting and working long hours. Factors to consider here include glare and reflection. Once you have selected your table lamp, you should also consider where to position it. For best results, place the lamp opposite the hand you write with to avoid casting shadows.

At Nordlux we have many different table lamps to suit various needs, purposes and personal styles, so you can find the lamp that will fit into your office perfectly. You can find table lamps ranging from the classic architect’s lamp, which allows you to direct the light exactly where you want it, to more sculptural lamps in different shapes, colours and materials which have lots of personality.
Most people associate work lamps with desk lamps. But this form of lighting can also be an opportunity to choose an elegant pendant lamp to hang over your desk, creating personality and life in your office. For this, we recommend pendants such as the Lilt pendant.
