DO I NEED TO BUY THE CORD SET?
You can buy the cord set from us or use one that you already have. If you have your own standard cord set don't worry, our lampshade will fit perfectly.
DOES THE CORD SET WORK WITH OVERSEAS ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS?
The ceiling lamps cord sets are compatible with any electrical system. The table lamps have an EU plug, so if you live in a country that uses another type of
electrical plugs (for example, Australia or US), you just have to use an adapter.
WHAT TYPE OF LIGHT BULB SHOULD I USE AND WHAT WOULD BE THE MAXIMUM WATTAGE?
If you buy one of our cord sets you will have to use an E27 light bulb. The lamp should ONLY be used with an energy saving light bulb (or any similar fixtures with low heat generation like LED). Regarding the light's temperature, we recommend you to use a 3000k bulb (warm white). For intensity we recommend 900lm / 15W LED but you can use lamps with more intensity.
HOW MUCH LIGHT DO THE LAMPSHADES ALLOW OR BLOCK?
Our lampshades allow the light to pass through the paper when the light is on, however light intensity may vary depending on paper colours.

Colours may appear slightly different in photos and on different screens. Unfortunately we can not control it perfectly when taking the photos.
