We acquired a couple of the 72 led lights shortly after getting the Dandy and find them incredibly bright, to the point of stark and certainly not romantic. The best way of using them seems to be to hang them facing a few inches away from the Dandy wall and basking in the reflected light. Brilliant as a utilitarian lamp though, even if they do seem capable of inflicting eye burn. Next came a couple of small led lanterns from Aldi (Don't you just love Aldi?). Not as bright but much more pleasant. We were once the proud owners of a tall 'Aladdin' table lamp with shade which was ideal as a source of heat and light, apart from the fact that they are so fragile and, quite honestly, used to frighten us to death at the prospect of a paraffin spill and fire. In some ways led lights and an extra pullover are more relaxing.
