Here at Design Public, we’re gearing up for back to school and homework time with a series of guides to workstation products. What we’ve kept in mind with our curation is not only lamps that will function well and fit comfortably on a desk, but also designs that will not only appeal to your schoolkiddo but also to you. These task lamps are stylish, modern and will last you for a long time after your child has flown the nest. In fact, the only danger is that you’ll be tempted to hijack these for yourself.

We’re kicking off a killer sale on Cerno. From now through March 1, 2015, Cerno Lighting is 15% off. Cerno’s selection includes table lamps, floor lamps, pendant lights and sconces. Cerno’s products are made of sustainably forested wood, and they are made in California.  The fact that they are LED makes them energy efficient. In other words, it’s a feel good purchase, which cancels out any guilt about treating yourself, OK?

It’s hard to pick a favorite, but here’s a preview. Screen Shot 2015-02-12 at 7.39.16 PM

Cerno Valeo Floor LampThis functional work of art makes a massive statement about scale, and approaches things from its own angles. Technically a floor lamp, it’s more of a drum shade on the world’s coolest stand. The walnut wood adds warm to any contemporary space.

Cerno Cubo Bedside Sconce. This clever piece takes up no wall space and functions as a hybrid. Above, see the way it can swing into task mode. Below, the arm tucks away and behind a polymer shade, creating the mood for something more exciting than reading.

Cerno Muto Large Pendant. Overlapping planes of walnut bounce the light around, cast interesting shadows while the whole piece has modern lines reminiscent of simple and beautiful Japanese architecture.

Cerno Claudo Pendant Lamp. Fast becoming a modern classic, this piece plays with positive and negative space. The Claudo also comes in a wall sconce version.

The Cerno Silva Giant Floor Lamp. This floor lamp has a dramatic base that appears to defy gravity.
