    Can I use a dimmable LED bulb in this table lamp?

    We have just bought this dimmable (three-stage) lamp. The descriptions states: "Bulbs required 1 x golfball SES small edison eco halogen bulb" Do you think it has to be an E14 dimmable "eco halogen" bulb? Or do you think I can I get an E14 dimmable LED bulb?
