You see practical gooseneck lamps like this one in movies and TV from the '40s to the present, usually on a cop's or gumshoe's desk. But you won't see one like this.

I've updated the lamp's original muddy brown finish to sleek satin black and glossy metallic red. But I preserved what I could of the original "Hotspot" sticker. (It now says "otspo" - perhaps it's a clue to solving some mystery.) I also painted the inside of the shade with white enamel, to reflect the light softly yet effectively. All working parts and wiring are also new.

The grooves in the cast metal base keep a pen, pencil, thumb drive, or iPod handy, while the well in front holds paperclips, keys, change, sticky notes, or whatever. All in all, it's a sexy yet functional little lamp.


- Flexible gooseneck.
- Push-through switch.
- 7" x 5" footprint.
- About 15" tall, depending on how you adjust it.
- Takes a standard bulb, 25 or 40 watt incandescent recommended. (Because the bulb sits horizontally, the weight of a CFL can cause the light to flicker or fail after the lamp has been on for a while.)
