Say Goodnight to the Bedside Lamp?

A new trend is in town

Where have all the bedside lamps gone? Seems they’ve been ditched. The bedside lamp has been replaced with the hanging lamp, the sconce modernized and switched out for a pair of overhead lights for either side of the bed.


But what’s caused this trend? Are our bedside tables becoming too cluttered with charging smartphones and tablets? Were there too many knock-it-over disasters reaching for the switch in the night? The answers to these we will leave to you to decide. While you try and figure it out, we present eight ways to incorporate suspended bedside lighting in your very own home.


For a contemporary take on the trend opt for a low hanging glass lamp as your bedside lighting of choice.

This statement lamp works particularly well with the high and low dynamics of this room, such as with the long drapes with lower details and tall height of the bed.


In this children’s room, not only has the lamp been done away with but so too has the bedside table.

Instead of a freestanding night stand next to the bed, there is a floating shelf and a drawer which works to free up precious floor space.


The warm and inviting bedroom in this minimalist home tour features a suspended main lamp paired with a collection of smaller strung up lights to form a frame.

Just think of how magical this room looks come night time! The rounded lamp shape really complements the graphic lines and shapes in this space too.


For a relaxed bohemian vibe try incorporating a low-hanging light in lieu of a table and lamp setup

More than simply freeing up space, a suspended bedside light makes for a great opportunity to incorporate a design statement into your bed space.
