However, you need a special light bulb for the lamp; not a standard socket and these are what you need. The name "Sparsam" seems to be Swedish for "save money" but you don't on the price of the bulb that is for sure. You do save on energy. And on light output; they are dim bulbs, indeed. I just can't cotton to the new non-incandescent lighting. None of it seems to really work for me and for reading, I have an Ott-Lite to really give me enough to see by.
One other issue; the textured coating of the bulbs gathers dust in a big way. I have to wipe these down with a dampish cloth rather frequently.
I don't love these bulbs, but as long as I own this decorative lamp, I'm kind of stuck. At least I can find them here and not have to trudge 100 miles to the nearest Ikea and wander through its vastness.
Apparently I have to say more...these CFL bulbs are low wattage while being bright. I generally don't like the harsh white lighting from fluorescents, and these are no exception. However, since they're mounted in an Ikea Orgel lamp the light passes through a layer of paper which changes it to a soft and gentle autumnal glow.
The items were well packaged, the shipping was fast, and the items arrived in perfect condition.

Easy to put inside the lamp, the light is a little bit dim but suitable for bedtime read.
I don't know its lifetime but so far so good.
I had hoped the bulbs would fit in my lamp, but alas, they are too long and just don't screw in. Guess now I need to order a lamp that fits the bulbs, sigh...Published on June 14, 2014 by Winona M. Lineberger
