Clockwise from top: Pottery Barn Architect's Table Lamp; Target Swing-Arm Wall Lamp; JCPenney Linden Street Adjustable Bridge Wall Lamp; IKEA Barometer floor lamp; Target Electra Desk Lamp; Walmart Grandrich Clip-On Reading Lamp; Walmart Pin-Ups Spot Light; IKEA Forsa work lamp; J. Lo Hooked on You.
The thing about semi-industrial looking swing-arm or task lighting is that the really cheap stuff doesn't look much different than the expensive stuff. Take for example Target's Bella desk lamp (above) versus Walmart's Architect Lamp.
Then there's the hack potential of various cheap IKEA parts versus Pottery Barn's Bristol Accordian Sconce.
Sadly, the most perfect lamp I found was Target's Task Lamp, $20, which I monitored for weeks without buying. Now out of stock. I still mourn its loss.
