One of the coolest lamps I’ve ever purchased. The foot switch is well designed and does not take a lot of pressure to engage. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is that it does not work well with power switching devices. For my example, I have a light switch that turns on a power outlet. When I connect the lamp to that outlet, the wall switch will turn off the lamp but not turn it back on. I imagine any smart plug device will do the same thing.
