I love how these bedside reading lamps are strung up with their wires onto the canopy bed frame. I'm very into flexible furnishings, so the idea of hard-wiring lighting fixtures into the wall doesn't have much appeal to me. In that case if you wanted to move the bed, you'd have to patch the holes and re-wire, but not with this solution! Also, I've spoken before about celebrating the wiring as part of the lamp and not being afraid to show it. After all, it is what makes the lamp work!
