Lighting for DIY macro studio?

Hi guys, I'm building a DIY studio at home for close-up and macro photography :). Just finished building my light tent and reflector the other day and now i'm looking for a good source of light. I'll most likely use a table lamp of some sort. Currently I'm using my old 13W table lamp but it's the thin tube kind so the lighting is kind of uneven. Does anyone have experience with this and can recommend a good light? Studio strobe should be out because of money and space constraint...I'm heading down to IKEA to have a look at their lights but just want to hear your recommendations first :)
