    An R bulb is simply a reflector type. They come in a number of different sizes. What is important is what type of R bulb is it? Is it a PAR or BR or plain R type? I am guessing that it is a R14 or R16. They come in a couple of base sizes. Intermediate and Medium or standard base. Most lighting showrooms along with home improvement centers carry them. Take your old one with you to ensure you get the proper replacement or check your info packet for proper size.

    What is an R light bulb? I have 2 Ikea lamps (my son worked there) & I just buy bulbs at Coles or wherever.

    I have Googled type R light bulbs but nothing came up.

    Let me know what lamp & I will ask him.

    "R" type bulbs, like the kind that fit the IKEA desk lamp ( I just got that desk lamp this week), can be purchased at Walmart, Home Depot, LOWES, and other hardware stores. The lamp takes a 25 watt max, R-14. The base of bulb is "Intermediate" not a regular medium base. Hope this helps.

    I just had the same problem getting a replacement bulb but unexpectedly, at albertsons I found the Sylvania vacuum cleaner & sewing machine light bulb 15 W (T7) with a upc code of 046135181740 a perfect fit. It costs $4.99. Hope this helps.
