The Hamburg Tapered Drum Pendant Lamp features a hardback fabric shade in burlap that is designed to hang via an included apparatus, rather than being hardwired into a ceiling. The white cord is 15' long and plugs into a standard wall outlet. A 150 watt incandescent or equivalent CFL bulb (not included) is operated by a line switch at the plug. This is a classic contemporary hanging lamp that blends seamlessly into almost any decor. A standard drum shade and a cone-shaped version are also available.
