Piano lamps are designed to give the user the illumination needed to see the keys and the sheet music without the bother of direct glare from the light itself. The shade of a piano lamp focuses the light directly onto the object the user wishes to see and prevents the light from directly affecting the user’s eyes. While these lamps are specifically designed for use with pianos, they also have other uses.
The piano lamp is often used as a desk lamp for home and workplace use. The excellent direct illumination provided by this type of lamp makes it extremely useful for working on intense projects late at night. The direct light of these lamps makes it easier for the user to stay focused on the task at hand.
Some people choose to use these lamps as a light for the kitchen counter. The outstanding finishes used on these lamps give them a sophisticated appearance hard to find elsewhere. Others have used the lamp as a backlight for a nice hanging portrait or painting. Clip-on piano lights work well for this application. Others have used these lamps to illuminate the interior of fine china and heirloom cabinets. As you can see, piano lamps are not only suitable for use with a piano, but they can also be used in other ways around the house.
