With the push for more efficient and eye-pleasing lighting, it's increasingly easier to find task lights utilizing bright and cool-to-the-touch LEDs. The challenge we discovered is finding lamp models that don't look like they were made from spare parts from Robot Johnny Five, yet fall within the limits of a reasonable budget.
With a seemingly endless selection of bargain bin LED task lights offered at big box stores and via online retailers, alongside a selection of high profile and beautiful high-end designer models from the likes of Herman Miller, Steelcase, and Pablo, strangely the moderate price range isn't as well represented as you'd think.
So we went searching online for LED-equipped task lights with the goal of finding an array of glowing design with the price dimmed down to under $100, all the while avoiding bargain bin specials. Here are ten, listed from lowest to highest price:
1. Design Classics Lighting LED Task Lamp - $39.95

3. Target Threshold LED Desk Lamp - $59.99
