Certain things change as you grow older. Instead of looking forward to the flash of strobe lights in a crowded club, I’m looking forward to the comfort of a soft bedside light. If you’re the type who wants to opt out of the traffic and start off the weekend on a relaxing note, we’re with you.
It’s a sacred time to be in bed, reading a good book, browsing the Internet or binging on your new Netflix shows. And if we give you advice on how to improve your home with the trending color this season or how to throw a good pool party, we’re also going to help you optimize your chill nights. So let’s start with a good bedside lamp.
If you need something that easily adjusts to your preferred position or task, go for this sleek and imposing lamp from West Elm. It has a swiveling head so you can let it shine light just where you need it. Available at Estancia Mall, Capitol Commons.
For a classic appeal, you can opt for this white and silver lamp. It will also speak to your environment-friendly sensitivities given its energy saving CFL technology. It also has a textile shade for even light distribution. Available at Greenbelt 5.
This lamp is both traditional and modern. I say traditional because of the circular shade which allows for the light to cover a bigger area. The modern take with the glass stem makes it an interesting addition to your bedside. Available at Central Square, Bonifacio Global City.
If you don’t mind something that looks like it came from the futuristic set of Her, this can be your pick. It features a flat-paneled lighting unit and 360° swiveling head for a different approach to ambient lighting. Available at Dexterton, Bonifacio Global City.
Do you want an old world and over-the-top feel? Maybe this one is right up your alley. Made with a brass finish, it also has a small bell shaped night light. So it’s as functional as it is pretty. Available at Shangri-La Mall.
