From what I've been able to find, LEDs emit little or no infrared radiation. Supposedly they don't fade fabric and they give off very little, if any, heat. The color light they produce was originally pretty harsh blue/greenish, but they're now available in warm, cool, sunlight, natural light, etc. Those would seem to be the way to go. Unfortunately they're not very good for your eyes and will there is a growing concern in the scientific world that they will cause retina problems if used exclusively for night-time lighting over time. However, once they're made with filters or restrictions on the blue light they produce, they should be less of a problem.
But for display case light, they would seem to be the best choice available.
