I just bought my brother a couple Eames desk lamps (he's an architect, with architect tastes) from Herman Miller. Most beautiful desk lamps I have seen in years, and as with any Miller product, incredibly functional.
My new job has lovely energy saving lighting, it's pretty much a cave because I'm not near a window. I'm looking for 2 architect style lamps to cover a work area about 5'x2'. I don't necessarily mind spending $100 /lamp, but I would really like to put my hands on one first to try it out, which I'm noticing is quite difficult to find them locally.
Anyone have any suggestions?

I have had two silver-painted Ikea 20w halogen task lamps on my desk for a few years. I think they cost $40 each, I can't remember. The arms don't stay put and adjustment is needed here and there, but they look nice and do the job. One just died though - probably the transformer. I might try wiring in another one. I had an Artemide Tolomeo on my desk at work a few years ago... that was amazing but not an energy saver.
If I had the money to put towards it I would spend the money and go LED for sure.
