A touch of the unexpected is often welcome in the bedroom.
If you're looking for a functional and charming spacesaving bedside light, UK design firm Black + Blum's Climbing Light is a fun option. Much smaller than a regular lamp, it's rigged with a silver-topped bulb head that focuses light downward, right onto your reading material.
The Climbing Light is also very easy to hang: the left "hand" hooks over a single screw and you're done.
We wish the cord did something other than dangle, but at least a dangling cord can be rationalized as part of the design in this case. (It's the climber's rope!)
The Puerto Rican design store da'Haus will ship the $49 light to the US mainland for $14.
