By day, overhead bedroom lighting provides precisely the right amount of illumination needed for dressing, reading, and puttering around the room. Come bedtime, that same bright glow feels harsh and contrary to a restful nighttime routine. Allow guests to unwind in the evening with a soft-glowing task light, like the Simple Designs Mini Basic 10.5" Table Lamp. The functional fixture, which has a metal base and fabric shade, is perfect for guests who like to crack open a good book before bedtime—and also for those who tend to trip while walking to the bathroom at night. Available at Wayfair; $17.99.
