What are piano desk lamps? Are they really all that different from any normal lamp that you use on your desk? Piano desk lamps are lamps that are specially designed for your piano. Any piano lamp is designed to light up the sheet music on your piano, without shining a light back into your face. This allows you to see the music clearly without having to shield your eyes from the light thats shining on the music. This can be a great asset when youre playing the piano. But wont a simple normal lamp do the job just as well? There are instances when a normal room lamp will help increase the visibility of your sheet music. The brighter the room is, the brighter the music will be.
Louis Comfort Tiffany worked in New York, designing stained glass for an interior design firm. The leftover pieces of glass at the end of each work day inspired him to start designed lampshades from them. He did continue doing the design work for the firm for a while, but soon he began exclusively designing and creating his signature lamps. A few artists and craftspeople worked with him to create the lamps, which were art but that he intended to be used in peoples homes and used, rather than simply admired.
Some may be tempted to use a very small regular lamp in place of a piano desk lamp. This may be one of the worst things you can do to solve your lighting problem. While a normal lamp will be able to increase visibility in most settings, desk lamps arent going to help your problem when youre playing the piano. This is because any lamp you place directly on your piano is going to shine back into your face. Desk lamps dont pose a problem for bedside reading, because youre sitting at the side of the lamp to read. But when a lamp is placed directly on a piano, youre going to have to stare almost straight into that lamp in order to read the music. Piano desk lamps are designed with a shield on the front, which keeps the light from shining into your eyes. This shield also allows all of the light given off by the lamp to shine directly onto the sheet music, making the light brighter on the music, and keeping you from having to squint while looking at the lamp.
Kids love a touch sensitive lamp, great for impressing their friends and the ideal choice as that comforting night lamp allowing you to dim the light to the required level. For older children who have left homework to the last possible minute, a desk lamp will provide the means to write up that essay in the wee small hours of the night. I dont think there is a house out there that doesnt have a desk light of some shape or form. They are extremely flexible allowing you to move them around the house easily. Desk lamps never seem to get put out for rubbish as there is always a use for that tatty old desk lamp in the garage or shed!
This can be very tiring on the eyes and even cause you to see spots of green and red if the glare on the page has enough contrast. This is not good for your retinas over the long term and subjecting yourself to this type of eye strain could cut your study time in half. Also some people find that the halogen lamp has a subtle, barely discernible flicker that also strains the eyes. Yet another problem with study lamps that have the halogen bulbs is that the light is very concentrated and is only really good for shining on one page of a book and not necessarily the contents of your entire desk. However proponents of the halogen lamp say that having a lamp like this helps you focus on studying and helps to visually black out other distractions.
