Good to know
Use an opal light bulb if you have an ordinary lamp shade or lamp and want an even, diffused distribution of light. Use a clear light bulb if you have a lamp shade or lamp with a perforated or cut-out pattern or other airy, open design and want the pattern to cast effects on the wall and ceiling. May be completed with other lamps in the same series.
Light bulb sold separately. IKEA recommends LED bulb E26 600 lumen globe opal white.<br/>

Pretty light, fussy to installA pretty light, though installation is not the easiest, and there is one important illustration missing from the instruction sheet.
I recently installed this light in a ceiling box in my US home. Installation was not as easy as the instructions make it seem.
Firstly, there is one very important illustration missing. After the screw is loosened on the box cover, there is no illustration showing the inner plastic plate pulled out from the cover. This is very important, as the plastic plate has the loop that the lamp hangs from, and cannot be placed on the hook if the plate remains inside the cover.
Second, this lamp really requires three hands for the installation. One to support the weight of the lamp, and two others to make the wire connections and install the metal plate on the ceiling box. though the lamp is lightweight, it weighs enough to pull apart the wire connections.
Third, the metal plate. This is supplied as a circular plate, with a hook to hang the lamp, and slots to mount it to the box. The problem here is that the plate completely covers the box, preventing installing the plate, hanging the lamp, and then connecting the wires. Many similar lamps sold in the US would have a 3/4" (19mm) strap that connects to the box, allowing the strap to be installed, the lamp hung from the hook, and the wiring installed with two hands.
The instructions also are missing how to handle the excess of wire left if you shorten the lamp. I was able to wind it around well enough, but an illustrated guide would help.
In short, a very attractive lamp let down by the instructions.
