The ambient lighting provides for basic illumination in the bedroom which is essential if you want to securely move around in this room. However, you not only need a cosy light for getting dressed or for securely moving from one end to the other. Many people in their beds. For this purpose, it is
recommended to purchase a light fixture that provides for zone lighting and that can be attached to the bed or placed on a bedside table. This means that a bedside table lamp is a must for everyone who likes to read at night.
If there is enough room in the bedroom next to the bed, a floor lamp should also be considered. A clip-on light is convenient as no lengthy installation process is required and a wall light practically does not take up any space.

A sure bet for zone lighting for beds is the Zed Tavolo. The flexible arm of this table lamp makes it an ideal solution when it comes to directing focused light on the new crime thriller, a romantic novel or the latest issue of the sports magazine. Furthermore, the creation by Tommaso Cimini for the Italian brand Lumina allows for an adjustment of the light cone thanks to a mechanism on the light head. A wonderful feature for those who are drowsily looking for the light switch unable to orient themselves at night: the light head of the Zed Tavolo does not become hot as the illuminant is located in the base and the light is directed upwards by means of glass fibres. Another great option for the bedside table is the Beluga Steel. The table light by Fabbian can be rotated by 360%26deg; around the horizontal axis and thereby allows for an easy adjustment of the light. Thanks to its small dimensions, it does not take up a lot of space. The spherical creation by Marc Sadler is quite small but its cuteness factor is off the chart. However, a bedside table lamp does not necessarily need to be adjustable in order to provide for reading light in the bedroom. Luceplan, for instance, offers the Costanzina Tavolo which directs its light upwards and downwards and thereby ensures sufficient illumination for
reading. Its special feature is the particular design: its shade is only attached at two points. Thus, it always finds its balance itself. Additionally, the seemingly floating appearance of the Costanzina adds a touch of lightness to the bedroom. This is complemented by the delicate switch that allows the light to be quickly switched on and off.

If it is possible to place a floor lamp next to the bed there can only be one recommendation: the Tolomeo Lettura. Calling this piece by Giancarlo Fassina and Michele De Lucchi flexible would be an understatement. The lower arm can be swivelled by 45%26deg; and rotated by 360%26deg;. The upper arm can be adjusted by 180%26deg;and the light head can be rotated by 360%26deg; and tilted by 240%26deg;. To ensure that the selected position remains stable, Artemide equipped this flexible light with a spring balancing system. However, the Tolomeo light not only makes a good impression in terms of the functionality. Timeless elegance and stylish purism are combined in this award-winning, delicate designer light to form a graceful illumination object that visually enhances the room in an unparalleled way. For this reason, the iconic light made of polished and anodised aluminium is also often used in the living room, where it can be placed next to an armchair or a sofa. The popular piece is also available as an LED version that only requires 10 watts and still produces an impressive light output of 480 lumens %26ndash; a value that even exceeds the intensity achieved by a conventional 40 W incandescent lamp.
Zone lighting at the bed provides additional support for our eyes. It is a helpful light as is can be installed within easy reach and it therefore quickly supplies brightness in the bedroom %26ndash; a nice option for pitch-dark nights. However, if a reading light is the only light source within the room, the eyes constantly need to adapt to the changing conditions between the bright zone lighting and the dark surroundings %26ndash; in this case we are talking about contrasts between light and dark and a co called adaptation of the eye. If the said contrast is too sharp they eyes will tire quickly. In order to avoid this, it is recommended to additionally switch on the light fixture that ensures ambient lighting. The Funnel by the Spanish manufacturer Vibia is a ceiling light that produces harmonious ambient lighting in the bedroom. This is effected in a visually remarkable manner: the bowl element and the reflector disc located above it are combined to form a very unique light fixture. The extraordinary look of this designer light by Ramón Benedito also determines the lighting effect. The disc houses the illuminant to be inserted which emits the light upwards.
Here, the light is reflected by the reflector disc into the room. This results%26nbsp;
in a soft ambient lighting and a charming light corona that is formed around the Funnel. A slightly more original basic illumination is offered by the Birdie%26#39;s Nest. It consists of many small %26quot;light birds%26quot; %26ndash; special incandescent lamps developed by Ingo Maurer that are equipped with real goose feathers. By means of this light, the world-famous German designer demonstrates two things: firstly, he makes an impressive reference to the recurring motif of a free bird. Secondly, pays tribute to the classical incandescent lamp. As a result, a ceiling light was created that not only makes the people stop and stare due to its impressive look but that also ensures a sophisticated basic illumination. The interesting feature is: the lamps that are attached to flexible copper wires can be arranged as desired. Thus, the Birdie%26rsquo;s Nest always convinces with an individual design that is accompanied by a characteristic lighting effect.
A further element that should form an integral part of the bedroom interior is the mood lighting. Although it does not make a contribution to the illumination of the room, it adds an appealing decorative touch. The Miss K undoubtedly fulfils these characteristics. The table lamp by Philippe Starck,
acknowledged with the Red Dot Award, is ideally suited for use in the bedroom.%26nbsp; Here, it visually enhances a bedside table or a commode by giving off simply charming mood lighting and by allowing fascinating insights into its interior. For this purpose, an interesting design is used: on the inside, a diffuser is located which is made of polycarbonate that was produced through an injection-moulding process. This internal diffuser is surrounded by a classic shade made of aluminum-coated methacrylate that Flos enriches with special colour pigments. An all-rounder is the Glo-Ball. The piece by Jasper Morrison is supplied including a 150 W eco halogen lamp. Thus, this beautiful floor lamp with the hand-blown shade made of high-quality opal glass provides for a soft, relaxing ambient lighting %26ndash; the ideal solution for a %26quot;recreation room%26quot; such as the bedroom. Since this %26quot;glowing ball%26quot; is also equipped with a dimmer the light intensity can also be reduced to produce a smooth shimmering effect. This way you can achieve a wonderful, pleasant mood lighting that significantly improves the atmosphere in the bedroom.
