Ask your question
Q: I want to use the swing arm lamp in place of table lamps for reading in bed as well in in the living room. Is there adequate illumination in the 13 Watt T5 Fluorescent bulb you recommend? and can it be controlled by a dimmer switch?
A: The lumen equivalency for this fixture is comparable to the brightness of a 40 watt incandescent A bulb. Unfortunately this fixture uses a fluorescent bulb with an on/off switch, so it cannot be dimmed.
