I ordered one for these for my mum last week. She has the traditional single fitting in the middle of the room and the current CFL is horrific. The aim is to connect it to a dimmer and the lamp is quite visible through the shade so the "interesting" way the lamp looks was appealing. I will let you know what its like when it's fitted. Jizwizard Philips say it can work with any leading edge dimmer. Do you have any you would recommend? It will be a single white face plate with the single lamp connected.
