Lighting Suggestions For a Tiny Bedroom?

Good Questions

Q - Hi Apartment Therapy, I need your help. I have been working very hard at pulling together our apartment in MidTown. Our bedroom is very, very small. Basically, all we can fit is a queen-sized bed, and there isn't even room for proper night-tables. After months of research, I decided to forgo a traditional headboard, and I found this wall art from Brocade Home. For the bed, we bought the IKEA Sultan storage bed. I had a wood-worker make custom-made book-shelves, and I am using one of those shelves as a night-table. On the other side, all I have space for is a C-shaped Crate&Barrel table. Basically, the room ends where the picture ends on the right hand side. My question is: what do I do for lighting now?...

The wall is not hardwired, but I can have that done. Initially I was thinking of two Tolomeo wall lights (with arms) one on each side of the wall-art, three quarters of the way up. But now I am thinking that maybe I should have a single, long and narrow lamp, stretching out all the way across — maybe something with glass beads, Swarovski-like...but I have no idea where to find it. It cannot hang from the ceiling, since it is not wired for it and it is solid concrete. Only on the walls. Can you help? Thank you so much! Lilia
