LIGHTING - What Type of Bulb Should I use in my Light Fixture?
Question: What type of bulb should I use in my light
Answer: For most of our fixtures you can use a standard
incandescent bulb, a vintage-style carbon filament bulb, or a screw-in type compact
fluorescent (CFL). Whatever style bulb
you choose, the most important consideration is the bulb’s wattage. Each fixture has a maximum wattage rating,
which is listed in the Features section of the item detail page. Bulbs that
exceed the maximum wattage can discolor metal finishes and shades, deteriorate
electrical parts, and start fires.
Damage caused by improper light bulbs is not included in our 5 year product
authentic period lighting effect, use our genuine Edison-style bulbs in your
fixture. These carbon filament bulbs are great for exposed sockets and cast a
dim, but warm, mellow light.
note: decorative type bulbs, like those with candle-flame shapes, are made for
use in "tips up" position only. Never install pointed bulbs
