Cox & Cox Desk Lamp – Review

I’m going to hold my hands up now and admit that I’m more than a little bit in love with my new Cox & Cox desk lamp.  There I’ve said it.

Having my own work-space is still something of a novelty and I’m still working on the details (I will write properly about my work-space as a whole once it’s properly finished) but I absolutely love being able to come and sit down in my own little corner and get on with my work without distractions.  (Well as far as is possible in this house anyway!)

Although our dining room is one of the brighter rooms of our house, I’m often working in the evenings so adding a desk lamp seemed like a sensible decision.

Choosing my lamp wasn’t difficult at all, all my new office furniture is white and I’m keen to keep the space as bright and clean as possible, so the moment  I saw this beautiful matt white & copper detailed desk lamp I knew it was going to be perfect!

The simple domed shade and round base are stylish but unobtrusive in my work space while the copper coloured details and the black and white fabric flex just give it a touch something that lifts it from entirely practical to contemporary and desirable!

Although the desk lamp is adjustable to a point, you do need to be super careful to maintain it’s position as detailed in the packaging otherwise it’s at risk of falling over.  The first time I tried to use it, Dave had just put the bulb in and I moved it but obviously hadn’t tightened it properly and it collapsed on me breaking the bulb but thankfully not damaging the lamp itself or my laptop – I learned to be super cautious with it after that and actually just don’t touch it at all now it’s where I need it to be!

Do you love my new lamp as much as I do?  What else would you add to my work space?

I promise to share some more details from our dining room revamp soon!

    I love it! It fits in perfectly with your desk area, I like the white with a touch of copper it adds something to the lamp. I going to bookmark this, as I am just sorting out a desk area for me and I will be on the look out for a lamp x

    I love your new lamp! I wouldn’t add anything to your workspace, I envy its simple, uncluttered look (unlike mine I’m sad to say!).

    I like the add of colour the lamp gives. Does the white space help your concentration? My whole house is very cluttered and busy! #TriedTested

    Perfectly normal to be in love with an inanimate object! 😉
    It is super pretty though, I can see why!

    The lamp looks lovely. We have a big computer desk with hubby’s PC to the left and mine to the right. Mine is quite messy right now because I am still sorting it out. Maybe some more motivation photos on the bare wall?

    I would love my own work space. At the moment I have commandeered the toy box as my new work box which is a small victory but I still have to set up in the dining room each day. Love this lamp! #triedtested

    I could do with a desk lamp like that – it’s lovely #triedtested

    I love the copper touches! I am actually so jealous that you have a desk. That is my goal for this year, get a desk before the year is out! x
