Fabien Dumas' 'La Discrete' light-up shelves are handy combinations of two desk essentials: shelving space and lamps. An aesthetically simple and natural design, the 'La Discrete' shelf saves space while also providing light -- perfect for any office.

In a world where everyone owns millions of things, it's nice to have pieces of furniture that double up not only on functionality, but also style. The 'La Discrete' light-up shelves are a hollow wooden box-inspired shelf that contains a rectangular pull chain lamp. Made entirely from a soft grainy wood, you can load up this shelf with books or knick-knacks and it's available in either green or white.

The neat thing about 'La Discrete' is it can either be used as a desk shelf or be mounted on a wall. Which ever way, the lamp feature still works and the shelvf remains aesthetically pleasing.
