I have seen many possibilities of decorating the tables but we have not seen so far is the option you have on these lines: put two ceiling lamp on tables paths so we get a uniform light and a twist.
In this case, we have chosen two display lamps for reading but have been reinforced with two sconces direct light that we see on the table. This option allows more space to put things you need at night as clocks, glasses, glass of water or the book you are reading.
The more hits that I see this option is the hassle of wiring and you have to have the placement of the two lamps in the place where it will go to bed and then the discomfort of knowing that cannot be changed after place it. However, to convince me to put more than one light fixture, I like the twist that gives the room.
