I finally found some very bright and very warm white LED strips for ambient lighting. They have a color temperature of 2400K which appears to matches the color of the halogen desk lamp. All I had to do was ask for for that temperature since they are not specifically list.
Here are the same LED strips used for bench lighting where I glue up the Technicolor Pixels to make them more water resistent. There are four rows of strips, each in a separate 2 meter aluminum tray with diffuser. They are powered with a 24v/5A power brick
