Was all a very good idea to have these types of lamp holders to force to use the energy saving lamps. But as you notice, try finding a shade for them is not easy & very limited. Personally i would change the lamp holders over to normal BC or ES holders to give you more flexibility. The lamp holders are only around £1.00 each. Make sure you get heat proof lamp holders for longevity. You can always put low energy lamps in these holders if your feeling a bit green.
