Yes but it needs to be a specially designed 3-way dimmer.

Dimmer switch


Most 3-way dimmers will only let you dimm from one end. The other end is a regular 3-way.

There are some more expensive ones on the market that will let you dimm from both ends.

Dimmer switch


try contacting this company - i recently redid my house with them and they fitted dimmers to all kinds of stuff I didn't think possible (LED's, fluorescents etc.)

I'm sure they could help you out.

Regards,

DoA

p.s. I'm in no way affiliated with the above company, I just admired there service, attention to detail & prices.
