As we inch closer to almost an entire calendar year of working at home, we've started approaching our home decor with as much precision and thought as we previously did our wardrobes. And our home offices or work spaces are getting the most attention, naturally. 

Take Gabrielle Union, for example. The 48-year-old presented a compelling case for accenting a study with a gold lamp in a recent Instagram post. She's (un)officially deemed it this season's must-have desk accessory – and we're taking note. 

Similar to your favorite pair of gold hoops or necklace, this glam lighting fixture is pleasingly elegant, while effortlessly drawing attention.

In short: it's the ultimate decorative win-win. So, if you're looking to keep your clutter down but your style high, we've uncovered five Gabrielle Union-approved lamps to light up any room (and desk) to perfection.
