When it comes to your workspace, a little playfulness really can't hurt. Your desk might not be your fave spot in your home (it's hard to compete with your couch and your bed) but with some fun touches, it can be a space that you actually look forward to being productive in. A colorful, interesting light can make a huge difference, so it's all about finding a task lamp that works for your style.

These unique desk lamps will give your workspace a fun vibe, but they're still totally practical, so they won't get in the way of you getting sh*t done, either. And a few of these will work especially well in children's rooms — you know, to make them dread their homework a little bit less.
