We’re loving the idea of using wall-mounted lamps beside the bed. They are a little unexpected, but functional, too. They free up space on the nightstand, plus several styles have a swing-arm — meaning they’re easily adjusted for better reading light. Here are some pretty images we love for inspiration.
