6 of the best LED E27 dimmable bulbs! April 29, 2022 11:00

Which LED bulb is best to use? Bright enough, but not dazzling light? What are the best dimmable E27 LED bulbs? Which size fits the lampshades well? Well all of these will just about fit into all of your Ethel Etheletta Polly and Cube lights... They're all fine for Black and White versions of the glass lighting too, and just the filament bulb at the end suits the transparent glass Teal Blue or Honey versions of Bell and Waisted. Just watch out there are new ones launched ALL THE TIME, have a little internet browse if you're curious, there's probably a newer version of one of these already!
