Task Lighting

Task lighting describes any type of lighting used for illuminating a dark area when added lighting is needed to complete a task. Areas around the home you may want to illuminate with a table lamp or floor lamp include the living room, dining room, kitchen, den, bedroom, bathroom or home office. At Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, you can find numerous styles of task lighting suitable for every room in the home. Below are some of our most popular styles.

Mini Pendants

Brighten any workspace around the home with mini pendants and create a timeless nostalgic atmosphere at home. Many pendant designs in our collection are inspired by the early 20th Century industrial age. These lamps bathe rooms in a warm electric glow that is easy on the eyes and relaxing. We enjoy bringing you vintage style mini pendants modeled after lighting from past historical eras. They don't make lighting like this anymore, except for us, of course. Consider choosing mini pendants to illuminate a kitchen island, hallway, bedroom closet, hobby work area and other spaces.

Wall Sconces

The wall sconce is a practical choice for lighting a seating area in the living room, a bedroom vanity or a bathroom counter. This type of lighting works best when used to illuminate a specific area that needs a tad more lighting to see comfortably. Our collection includes a range of styles for your decorative convenience. One timeless style we feature is the swing arm sconce. These are flexible lamps with metal arms that you can move, either forward and backwards, like an accordion or swing out from a side angle. The beauty of this style is that you can adjust the level of light to suit your needs. Other styles bring a nostalgic touch room décor.

Adjustable Lamps

Whether your home décor is traditional, modern, rustic or minimalist, our classic style adjustable lamps blend beautifully with your furnishings. We offer table and floor lamps in this style, and adjustability varies, depending on the style. Typically, this lamp allows you to move the shade portion of the fixture to direct the source of light wherever you like. We offer desk lamps and floor lamps with this feature. But adjustability is only one reason to admire these lamps. Classic lamp designs inspired by vintage lighting enhances the decorative beauty of any space.
