Hello AT,

I have been looking for a pair of bedside lamps, and recently saw a pair I loved in the Netherlands. I'd like to get them shipped over, but am concerned as they are 220 volts, while the US works with 110 volts.

Is there any place I can bring it to in NYC to get it changed? I'd rather not use a voltage converter, as I already have 3 running at home.

Thanks, Reshma

Dear Reshma,

Lamps are just tubes with wires in them and all the wires and the plugs can be changed. While we are not sure, you may be able to simply switch out the plug - anyone know? - but if you have to rewire it, there are a number of lighting stores that will do this. Here's our list:

Filaments
Lighting Plus
Oriental Lampshade

Anyone else???
