Swedish home furnishings retailer IKEA will switch its entire range of lighting products to LED-based before end of the month.
LED-based lighting cuts energy use by 85 percent compared with incandescent bulbs and can last for 20 years.
The technology offers high-quality light suited for different preferences; it allows the customer the flexibility to choose between warm or cool light and almost all bulbs are dimmable.
Also, LED lights come in all shapes and sizes and are backed by high quality.

Jeanette Skjelmose, Business Area Manager Lighting at IKEA says: “We have worked hard to make it easy for our customers to love LED. It is just to switch the old incandescent bulbs when they go out, to new LED bulbs. There is no need to throw away your favourite lamp.”
