This corner lamp stands about 57 in. tall and has a sturdy base that makes it wobble free and safe to have around children and pets. It is lightweight and slender so you can move it between rooms easily e.g. from home office to kids' room, unlike those bulky lamps that take up all that space. The extension cord is around 2.5 m making it easy to place this lamp anywhere. Comes with an on/off foot switch that gives user a convenient control.
