I'm remodeling the house and have converted everything to can lights. I have to go buy about 36 PAR30 bulbs and about 12 PAR20 bulbs. Where can I get the best deal? Difficulty: NO EBAY. [more inside]

So, I have this old, ugly lamp. In the hopes of improving the appearance of this lamp, while at the World Market the other day, I bought a new shade for it. Because I am a noob who has only bought cheap lamps in the past, I didn't notice that the shade was an Uno shade (in fact, the Internet tells me it's an Uno downbridge lamp shade) whereas the lamp has a harp fitting. But! The socket is also threaded, so theoretically, it should be pretty easy to turn this into a regular Uno socket, right? [more inside]

Anyone know where I might be able to purchase lamps similar to the bedside lamps featured [see 4th picture down] in this reader redesign feature on Young House Love
a few years back? At the time, the owner said she found the lamps at HomeGoods. Of course, since we're now a few years past that, there's nothing like that at my local HomeGoods. Has anyone seen lamps like these online recently? I'd be willing to pay up to $200 for something similar in size and style. Thanks!

I'm looking for a light that is not very bright, to be used in a room with a sleeping husband. Something between a nightlight and a regular lamp. [more inside]

Potentially-nonexistent-product-filter: Is there such a thing as a light system that emulates dawn-to-dusk daylight? Something that brightens and dims relatively closely following actual sunlight? [more inside]

I have an odd fascination with lighting. I want to learn how to rewire various consumer electronics into functioning lamps without electrocuting myself and/or burning down my apartment building. [more inside]

My son is a draftsman and just started a new job. He likes this company better, but the lighting isn't as good. He doesn't have a lot of money to spend, but doesn't want to waste money on lamps that aren't worth it. I've looked for reviews on the web and here, and I didn't find specific information or personal suggestions. Recommendations for types of lamps/lighting, specific lamps, and the least he should expect to spend? What he shouldn't waste money on? I saw Ott lamps at Hobby Lobby tonight, but he said he saw an Ott lamp at Office Depot that wasn't very bright.

Designing some various lighting (wall-attached, hanging and stand-alone)
At this early stage, we need to look at off-the-shelf components and assemblage, such as swivel/flex joints, switches, sockets...but especially SHADES; metal, resin, even paper.
Where can one find, view and order parts? [more inside]

I've seen this revolving children's night light in 2 TV shows (Undeclared and Sex and the City) and 1 movie (One Fine Day) and I have been trying to find it since. I've searched online and I can't seem to find one anywhere. Can anyone help me find where to purchase these revolving lights/lamps?

I know there have been some other questions on SAD lamps, but I'm more interested in whether they actually do make a difference. Anecdotal and empirical evidence are both sought after. Also, recommendations in the UK. [more inside]

I need a lamp for my Toshiba 44NHM84 DLP. The repair place wants $471.01 for the lamp, this seems a tad high to me. I am, however, having a hard time finding a lamp from a non-Ebay source online. Where should I go for DLP lamp replacements?
