Among the desk lamps that were designed and manufactured during the retro period the flexible gooseneck table desk lamp made a reappearance. The lamp was able to be positioned on the edge of the desk but, thanks to the long, bendy neck was able to be positioned directly over the work giving a good working light.
This design was made fashionable during the art deco period earlier in the century, but with some modern plastics getting introduced into the design, the retro touch of the 1950s gave it an instant modern appeal.

Industrial Gooseneck Desk Lamps
During what was commonly referred to as the Machine Age, the gooseneck desk lamp was found in most workshops and factory offices and they were very industrial looking in their nature. These metal lamps are being rediscovered and used again and their popularity is increasing. The fact that they can be bought at very reasonable prices doesn't hurt either. Take a look at the selection of Vintage Industrial Gooseneck Table Lamps that we have listed for sale.
Double Gooseneck Desk Lamps
A great alternative to the single gooseneck lamp is the double. As the name suggests the double gooseneck desk lamp features a pair of lamps coming out of a single base. These lamps may be illuminated either singly or at the same time to provide focused task lighting in two separate directions. Perfect when you have a couple of children who need to do their homework at the same time or when one person wants to read in bed while the other is asleep. Take a look at the selection of Vintage Double Gooseneck Table Lamps that we have listed for sale.
Cast Iron Gooseneck Desk Lamps
Almost out of necessity the base of many of the early gooseneck lamps had to be made from a relatively heavy material and the use of cast iron at the base became commonplace. This has meant that some of the oldest lamps are still looking great and working reliably and represent a great opportunity to buy a functional desk lamp at a cheap price. Take a look at the selection of Cast Iron Gooseneck Table Lamps that we have listed for sale.
Chrome Gooseneck Table Lamps
The more typical types of gooseneck lamps are those featuring chrome necks sitting between either plastic or chrome lamp shades and bases. These lamps were particularly common during the 1960s and 70s and sat on the desks of many bedrooms and studies. Take a look at the selection of chrome gooseneck table lamps that are listed for sale.
