Going along with an earlier question CFL and LED may give you enough light to see by but are very poor for reading. An led with equivalent lumens may need a flood light if they even come that big and a cfl sont fit my swing arm lamp. Either the harp is too small (the estenders won't work on a swing arm or with the other shade the bulb comes out the top if its enough lumens.. The biggest led is a flood lamp and that is equivalent to 100 watts. I use a 50/100/150 3 way bulb in incandecents

Reading between the lines, it sounds like you have a Hansen-type swing arm lamp with a 3-way switch that was intended for regular (A-lamp) socket incandescent bulbs.
