Interior Lighting - Looking for suggestions

I'm looking for some suggestions for a bedroom and living room halogen white light lamp. Looking for a more modern/contemporary/retro style look.

Any suggestions? Looks count, but definitely need to be able to produce bright white light.

Ikea actually has a really good selection of modern lighting. Got one of those around?

Any thoughts on track lighting? I just finished putting some up in my media room as I wanted some I could control the direction (for posters, DVD's, etc). I got track lighting since it was easy and cheap. Yet, now that I'm done, I really like it. I got some of the smaller lights for it so it doesn't have that 70's look.

Speaking of lights, I learned the hard way long ago, before buying any light fixure carry it over where they sell the bulbs and see how much the bulbs cost. I once picked up some really great ceiling spot lights only to find out the bulbs were like $15.00 each!

thanks for the suggestions. I'm going to have to stay away from Ikea unless it doesn't look / feel like 'Ikea'.

No track lighting either, the room isn't equipped. has to be the plug in style
