Get the task-light look for less

Vipp via The Design Chaser
The humble task light (a.k.a. “desk lamp”) used to be the cheapest choice on the home lighting shelf and a favorite of late-night boho studiers. But those dollar days are no more. 

The popularity of minimal and industrial home design has given us more choices in task lighting than ever before, but it's now a choice with a higher price tag. 

So what’s a boho gal on a budget to do? 

Shopping at tag sales and next-to-new shops is always smart, since many task-light styles have been around since the 1950s. 

But if you don’t have the time or inclination to shop secondhand, there are also some trendy choices with down-to-earth pricing, brand-spanking-new, at several familiar retailers. 

For most, you can either order online or check them out first at a bricks-and-mortar store.
