The machine table has two task lamps and my work table has one task lamp. The lamps have LED bulbs so they should provide energy efficiency without making the work area hot and possibly causing a burn if I bump them with my hand. The lamp arm bends and rotates so I can light the machine bed. I don't want the task light high above the machine because the top of the machine causes the machine bed to be in shadow.

I didn't mention vendors and prices in this article because there are options at all price points and custom furniture is not necessary for sewing. If you set a small furniture budget, consider using a pub table; they are very affordable online and heights vary from 36" to 42". For lighting, set a budget and see how much wattage you can get for the money.
I appreciate you taking the time to read my blog and I have plenty of project ideas for 2013. I will be starting two beginner level tutorials later this week. One is a vintage Burda skirt, the other a Vogue knit dress. In addition I will feature a very interesting advanced level Marfy (Italian designer pattern company) jacket tutorial. Have a happy 2013!
