A smooth, tapered base with a finish beautifully reflects the light shining through a textured cream/brown fabric shade . The Linda Table Lamp is the perfect size for a desk or side table. A 3-way rotary socket switch will only work with a 3-way light bulb. Otherwise, this lamp will function with simple on/off switch at its highest setting. This table lamp has a black cord and is smart outlet compatible. Bulb is not included.
