As per title. Chasing a mad little reading light to attach to the head of my bed (verticalish wooden head bed frame). Im a sucker for good style and innovative engineering so lets see what people can come up with!

Seconded, ikea reading lamp, simple so it goes with everything and doesn't look out of place, gives a great light not too bright, not too dull.

Or you could look for a Tiffany Lotus lamp, that is pure style.

we have some clipon lamp, I don't know where it came from because it was a gift but it clips to stuff, has a gooseneck that you can manoeuvre into different positions. I think it's one of those energy saving CFL bulbs or something because it starts out dull but gets really bright the longer its on.

You could probably get something similar from bunnings/mitre 10/jaycar

This is the highest quality, most adjustable, highest performing and potentially the most efficient bed head reading light on the market.

Retails at like $300 though, I'm sure I could find a spare one around the office for a carton!

Ok so I have 2 of both of the following in stock:

300mm arm, warm white, 30 degree beam, silver finish, no switch on head (sparky would have to wire back to separate switch)


450mm arm, cool white, 30 degree beam, silver finish, c/w switch on head (sparky wires fitting straight to 240V)

NBC they're a constant current fixture so require a remote power supply which I have as well, and yes you'd need a sparky to fit them off. Retails for 3-400$ ea. Honestly theyre left over from a job so if you want them I can do them for a carton of piss.

Then download a "light" app which turns the screen white so you can illuminate your book, this way it's not just sitting around useless for the rest of the day.
