If you want to achieve a warmer tint to white lantern, use a candle bulb or a softone energy-saving light up to 25W (light output).

If you use the lantern as a hanging lamp, the cord set from Ikea, called “Hemma” gives a cost-effective solution. If there is no IKEA in the near area, a cord set is also available in your local hardware or electrical store.
