Looking for a good lamp

Postby Bwis53 » Tue Jun 19, 2012 8:17 pm

The 60 watter just doesn't bring out enough detail when I sew or paint. Where would I shop for a nice lamp that doesn't need special bulbs? Thanks in advance.

You don't need a new lamp, just a new bulb.
Today's compact fluorescents can produce a broad selection of light. The classic soft yellow that you're used to, a cold, pure white light, or a daylight spectrum.
Since they use less wattage to produce greater lumens, you can get the equivalent of 200 watts of incandescent light in your existing fixture.

Led lamp/ bulb may be the way to go. Not as cool as the old lava lamp but will help you see your work.
