Whatever your routines may hold, herein are our favorite bedside table lamps to light the way.

SIN Mima Table Lamp
Time to lighten up. Inspired by the Mima Mounds of southwest Washington, this little domed lamp is almost just as much of a natural phenomena—it’s completely one of a kind.
Hay PC Portable Lamp
