With our lovely new ceramic additions we now have 90 Lampholders available, choosing the right bulbholder can be daunting, so here’s a little help. Firstly…what is your source wiring? Three or two core flex?
Case 1: With 3-core flex, there is an earth wire and any type of lamp holder can be used.
Case 2: With 2-core flex, there is no earth wire so metal lamp holders should not be used.

Bulbs are no longer an after thought. Our vast array of light bulbs, with the majority now available in the latest stylish filament LED and being dimmable, are a popular design statement in their own right!bulb-group-mix-cal
