The gooseneck table lamp was a favourite way of providing close personal light to work with at a desk. The lamp evolved from a purely functional piece of equipment to a more decorative item in the same way that most other household or office items tend to do.
These days a vintage industrial gooseneck table lamp or desk lamp makes a valuable addition to a room that is already decorated with period pieces. The mid-century gooseneck lamp that was commonly seen in offices and factories now makes a special talking point and adds plenty of atmosphere to a room.
