Where can I get a mid century modern lamp?
How much do you want to spend on a mid century modern lamp? Hate to answer a question with a question, but TODAY there are many choices. So, I will separate this out into three simple price categories:
Newly manufactured mid century modern lamps moderately priced. These repop’s are not authentic yet most are highly detailed quality products.
Some current MFR’s use their own blueprints and make original lamp designs with a mid century look & feel. Look for customer satisfaction and reviews.

Authentic lamps usually produced by original MFR. (ex. Herman Miller, Knoll Furniture, etc.) or authorized MFR’s by designers (Vitra Design Museum / George Nelson Re-editions ) .
Rule of thumb, pricing is usually much higher than repo’s. But, there is a margin to pick up real bargains or products on sale. Places to go for LAMPS: Herman Miller – Hive – Vitra Design Museum
