Did you know, studies suggest that personalising our work spaces with accessories and décor can lead to positive affective states? At Yes I Want It, positivity is everything: our ethos rests on making the world a better, happier place, and everything we do is in the service of this one, simple goal. What’s more, prettifying your desk might even make you more productive: which means you can get your chores done and dusted in time for the weekend - and that can only be a good thing!
But a desktop lamp is so much more than a producer of productivity. It casts a warm glow, adding a lively touch of character and personality to any space. Our selection of colourful neon desk lights are whimsical and fun, from pink flamingoes to green cacti, blue toucans to multi-coloured rainbows, they spread a little sprinkling joy wherever they are placed. For the more retro-minded amongst you, why not indulge in a mini, glitter lamp, with its cool, 1960s design and its dazzling, blue-glitter glow?
Got friends or family packing off to uni? Know someone who’s just moved house and want to give them a gift to christen the new pad? These lovely lamps make the perfect present for anyone setting up in a new space (just make sure you actually do give them - these lights have a habit of staying with the gift-giver, making their way out of the box, and somehow ending up on your shelf…oops!).
