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!

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.
