    Ceiling office lighting


    A ceiling light fulfils the need for general lighting in order to bring a basic illumination into the room, which is important to support your eyes and prevent tiredness. You will want to choose a bulb with bright white light, so try one of our household A-shape bulbs.

    The right desk lighting is essential to every home office. Reading a book, using the computer, or making a phone call all requires lighting to fit the scene. You might want to choose a SceneSwitch bulb where you are in control.
