The history of the green table lamp

Green table lamps are often associated with traditional settings such as banks, members’ clubs and libraries. In the first half of the 20th-century, they were used in particular by bank clerks. Why? Fluorescent lighting, now used to light up large working spaces, had not yet been invented. Interestingly, the green shade, sometimes followed by amber, was used because it provided a warm glow - protecting the workers’ eyes from the harsh glare of the lightbulb.
If such green table lamps were not available, the work would sometimes wear a pair of green eyeshades - the next best solution!

Choosing a green table lamp

Green is a life-giving colour, inspiring calm and focus. Just what you need when working! What better way to introduce a dose of this to your desk than with a green table lamp? A colourful lamp is a brilliant style statement and will make for an arresting presence on any desk. If you have a beautiful spacious walnut or mahogany desk, why not grace it with a traditional ‘bank clerk’ green lamp? Or if your desk is a bit more compact, choose a playful mid-century green lamp - many of which are designed with space-saving capacities.
