In the March issue of Architectural Digest, Hollywood producer Brian Grazer takes the magazine inside his tastefully appointed office for a tour. Grazer, who has been nominated for 43 Oscars and is the driving organizing force behind this year's Oscars, is known for his smart decision-making skills and obviously put that skill set to work when he hired famed decorator Michael S. Smith to decorate his office (Smith also decorated two of Grazer's homes).
Smith divided the office up into a work zone, shown here, which is dominated by a Scandinavian modern desk and bookshelf. The other part of the office features comfortable seating options and a cocktail table, perfect for entertaining and relaxing.
My eyes were immediately drawn to the cool vintage-looking brass task lamp on Grazer's desk. This lamp looks like it's the Christian Dell Table Lamp ($1,650). Designed in the 1930s, this lamp was part of the original Kaiser-Idell range. Dell was a German silversmith, an industrial designer, and an influential teacher at the Bauhaus from 1922-1933. This lamp seems like a great fit for Grazer's aesthetic and work ethic, given its simple, intelligent, and lovely design.
I've rounded up a number of choices that will satisfy your trendy brass task lamp needs — one for as little as $25. Take a look at my picks below.
