It seemed a good idea at the time.
When I moved into my flat I discarded the bedside lamp with the pushbar switch which I would invariably knock down if I ever needed to turn the lamp on in the dark.
A touch lamp seemed to be a better solution.
In fact it’s a bit of a nightmare.
You only have to brush near it and it accidentally comes on. You reach for the tissue box near it and it comes on. You dust it and it turns on. You move it an inch and it turns on.
It has a dimmable globe and needs to be touched three times before it reaches the ‘off’ stage: you miss the count and you could be there all night!
If it accidentally comes on during daylight hours and you don’t notice the first dim light, it could be on all day.
Not a good idea for a bedside lamp IMO.
