I am assuming if the smaller one which also has halogen bulbs has a dimmer fitted the bulbs on the floor lamp should in theory be dimmable to
I have contacted those people re the plug-in dimmer as frankly that would be perfect as we'd not have to mess around with the cables! (I did suggest we could possibly take the dimmer switch off the smaller lamp and connect it to bigger one as she is not fussed about smaller one not being able to be dimmed! You don't know if you don't try!)
