The right light can help or hinder our daily activities, making tasks easier to accomplish, drawing focus to areas and elements of a room, and helping to create the atmosphere that brings a space to life. These days, desk lamps have become much more than practical tools for study time, but are designed as little works of art in their own right. We have compiled our top five desk lamps from Mayfield, ranging from those with a sleek, modern look, to more vintage style desk lamps that celebrate style as well as functionality.


Contemporary in style and functional in purpose, the Amira is the transitional desk lamp of choice. Designed in Satin Black with minimal assembly required, this slick and fuss free lamp is the perfect addition to home or office, as an extra lightsource for reading, writing, and general tasks.


The Pia brings added interest to the traditional desk lamp, with clean architectural lines and no fidgety pieces to assemble. Available in three matt colours to suit all tastes, charcoal grey, sage green, and terracotta orange, the Pia brings an unobtrusive warmth to a desk or table.


There’s something always on-trend about Mid-century pieces, combining geometric shapes and mixed materials with a functional edge. Lying somewhere between the ‘vintage desk lamp’ and ‘contemporary desk lamp’ aesthetic, the SOMA adds interest to a space without being overpowering. Designed in Satin Gold and Satin Black, this smart-lookin lamp adds a pop of intrigue to bedrooms and studies alike. 


In-keeping with the Mid-century aesthetic, Mayfield’s Mahala design turns practicality into art, with the sculptural elegance of white marble, offset by a Satin Gold and Satin White colour scheme. Adding a touch of luxury to a room, the Mahala takes a leaf from the books of vintage style desk lamps, distilling the style into a clean and compact lighting source that is ideal for bedrooms or studys which would benefit from a touch of elegance.


Stepping away from the decadence of vintage table lamps, Australia has always celebrated modern design, as seen in the Kiyo from Mayfield’s contemporary collection. This is functional lighting at it’s finest, with a textured, Satin Black finish to suit any space and a 90 degree silhouette with down-facing lamphead to direct light exactly where it’s required. The metal base offers durability, making Kiyo the go-to desk lamp for any room in the home or office.


Celebrating a unique  Australian style of living, Mayfield have been designing, manufacturing and distributing their range of contemporary and vintage style desk lamps, floor lamps, table and bedside lamps since 1945. Continually developing and curating their collection of Contemporary, Mid-Century, Country Coastal and Classic lighting solutions, Mayfield are the go-to for all styles at home or for larger commercial projects.
