The light in question is a Ott-light flip travel light that I picked up at Michaels ages ago. I like it because it's easy to travel with but it
can be a bit tricky to get at the right height/angle. I have one of these that stays at the parents for when I am there.
At home I have a nice full size floor light that Santa got for me a few years ago. I know several people that have two - one for their stitching area at home and one that travels with them.

Neither of these is a magnifier, I usually don't need one. However, I did pick up this one a couple of years ago. It uses LED lights or you can use without. When I got this I was warned to keep it covered in case it starts a fire. So of course it's away from the sun.... one must protect the stitching!!
When looking for a light I'd say to look for a daylight bulb. If you don't like the look of the floor lamp like I have you can get a more traditional looking one. Canadian Tire has one.
And finally a warning: other people in your house will want to use your light.... cause it's just that awesome.
