Excellent bedtime light for reading

Love it
Love this. Better in person then I thought it would be. I use it to read in bed and it's perfect. FYI- The light to read by comes from the bottom, some light thru the shade is dim and tined the shade color. Make sure your headboard is tall enough that the light from bottom is what you need.

Works beautifully! Can actually see to read in bed!
We had tried in vain to find a bed light that would actually adjust to fit the depth of the headboard in my mother's bedroom. We would measure and think.."Ah, this would work!" Only to buy the bed light and get it home to discover that the clamping mechanism was not wide enough to accommodate the depth of mom's headboard! So we were delighted to find your bed light in the catalog. It was delivered quickly and installed even quicker! And YES, we would buy it again!

look good but not
This was to low to use in the bedroom. Sent the lamp back.
Oct 20, 2016
Would buy this product again!
I bought this light to use on the headboard of our bed and it fit just perfect and it matched the color perfect. Needless to say I was VERY happy when my husband put it on the headboard. Would highly recommend this product.

Love it but...
I love this lamp for it's convenience, ease of use, and it's look. However, the inside liner has somehow cracked and shows through the shade. I use the 40 watt bulb that is called for. I did buy a second one because the colors are perfect for my room and it's really nice to have the lamp right where I need it. Hopefully this one won't crack. I'm still using the first one but I did move it to the other side of the bed.

Bed light was just what I needed and was what I was looking
This light was just what I needed and was looking for. No more do I have to turn off a big lamp next to the bed. It puts the light where I want it and makes it easier for me to read in bed.

Disappointed with quality.
Bought same item in 2007. Has worked perfectly and lookes like new after over 10 years of use. Bought additional in February. It has fallen apart. Don't know if fluk or quality. Looked identical. Haven't decided what to do.

Perfect for the Bedtime Reader. The shade is lovely.
Perfect for bedtime readers. I got one for my sister and myself. Shade is pretty and will made.
Apr 25, 2016
Fifty percent aint bad
I bought two of them. One works fine, the other worked once and then the pull chain switch ceased to operate. I cannot find the shipping invoice to return it.
Apr 22, 2016
good product
good, handy lamp
Apr 07, 2016
So far very good buy
Nice design. Light could be a little brighter. But overall it does as it advertised. I had to make a few adjustments to the clip because I have a sleigh headboard.

Perfect for small areas. Closets on beds to read. Hangs on top of my baskets or rack. Great way to EASILY hang from any thing with a thin ledge.
Jan 20, 2016
It is just what I needed.
No need to hold it, won't tumble over.
Jan 14, 2016
Exactly what I wanted
Both a gift and personal (got two) Now I won't have to stretch to reach lamp on side table.

The lamp was just like in the picture that was in the catalog. Great value!
Jan 09, 2016
Big hit for xmas
User able to attach to headboard on either side. Great! Because, one hand is handicapped. Glad to give a gift that is functional and practical.
Jan 08, 2016
Bed light
It is too close to the mattress to use. If I do use it, I will need to make an extention of some kind , out of wood to match the head board...
Jan 08, 2016
Bed lamp
It was broken when it arrived..the clip that goes over the back of the headboard was broken off and not even in the box! Would have cost me to send it back..
Jan 06, 2016
Well Made
The lamp is well designed n sturdy with a great color choice. I chose the maroon. It is the perfect size and easy to keep clean, I just use the vac to clean the dust off.
Dec 06, 2015
The bed lights are great.
The lights are very good.

Love it
For reading at night
Oct 26, 2015
Adorable idea, badly realized
Ideal for a dorm room or rarely used guest room. Flimsy and lightweight can't count on any rough or long term use.
Oct 24, 2015
I have purchased this product many times
this is the only place that I can find these bed lights.each time mine goes bad I purchase a new one please continue to carry them.
Oct 15, 2015
Love this lamp! Perfect. It hangs from the bedframe and provides great light for my late night reading. When I want to shut it off, I just reach up and pull the chain. AWESOME INVENTION
Oct 09, 2015
The light is great, it doesn't get hot and it gives just lig

Sep 01, 2015
You Light Up My Life
My husband doesn't complain about light keeping him awake anymore. He sleeps right through this one! It's a great fast light for the middle of the night! The chain is easy to pull. I don't fumble for an on/off switch. So far, my only problem is hitting the lamp with my pillows during the night. Though, I truly think it depends on the bed frame!

If I cannot sleep I get a book and put on the light and read. Love it.
Apr 20, 2015
Perfect for what I needed.

Nice light, worth the money.
Mar 29, 2015
Could be a much better product
This would be a much better and more versatile product if they made the hanging wire flexible. As made, it's impossible to adjust.
Mar 11, 2015
Hooks too narrow, didn't fit.
I liked the design. Unfortunately, it did not fit over my bedpost, so I had to send it back.
Mar 07, 2015
Perfectly suitable for our needs.
The lamp fits easily on our head board and shines just the right amount of light onto our respective books.
Dec 19, 2014
Pleased with produt
I have been looking for reading lamps for our bedroom, I knew what I was looking for and unable to find it locally.
Nov 24, 2014
Great product at great price
I had seen this lamp in other catalogs for 24.99 and was about to purchase it when I discovered it at Harriet Carter. It looked to be the same item, but priced at 14.99, and I can't imagine what the difference might be. It's perfect for the purpose intended.
Nov 15, 2014
The sturdy hooks was short to hang over
In my Bed Room
Aug 10, 2014
Great on a headboard
Looks good and easy to install.
Aug 03, 2014
This was a replacement for my bedroom
I bought this to my damaged one when I moved several months ago.
Jul 29, 2014
Love it
Great for night reading in bed.
Jul 21, 2014
Love this lamp
Read every night and this lamp is perfect on my headboard.
Jul 20, 2014
i would buy it again
its all around pefect but could use a longer wire
Mar 18, 2014
Bed Light
The second lamp I have had .The first one served me well for many years. Especially like the fact it is attractive and so easy to use, without additional hardware.
Mar 15, 2014
(2752-1) Bed Light
On my headboard over my bed. Easy to attach, good color selection.
Mar 08, 2014
Awesome bed light
This light is perfect when I'm reading at night. It is not to big it is just the right size. Easy to install.
Mar 05, 2014
Works fine, does the job
This is the 2nd one I have purchased. They only last a few years before the inside of the shade dries out and crumbles. I haven't seen any replacement shades so had to buy the whole lamp again.
Mar 01, 2014
Won't Stay-put
The light is exactly what I wanted, however, the hooks are hard to bend so that it fits my headboard. I had one previous to this one and it came with plastic sleeves that fit over the hooks. This one did not come with the sleeves to put over the hooks and as a result it put gouges in my headboard.
Feb 24, 2014
Just as advertised
Fit my headboard perfectly but I had to go with a 60 watt bulb instead of the recommended 40 to get the right amount of light for reading.
Feb 22, 2014
Great light but
Good lamp but the plastic lining is too thin and becomes brittle and cracks after a certain amount of use (even with a cool bulb).
Feb 02, 2014
Perfect Bed Light
This light works very well as a over the bed light. It's small, but gives a lot of light sufficient for night reading in bed.
Jan 31, 2014
Headboard Bed Light
I use it in my bedroom, right over the headboard, this is very convenient. I like not having to get out of bed to cut of the lights.
Dec 31, 2013
Great for reading in bed
This is a great light for reading in bed. However the hooks that go over a headboard need to be more adjustable. Had to force it onto my 4 inch wide headboard. It is on the headboard, but just don't bump it or it will "jump" off.
Dec 16, 2013
Exactly what I needed
No room for a table and lamp on one side of my bed-this works perfectly for reading. It uses a 40w maximum bulb, but by using a 13w cfl, I get 60w of light output. If you want to light up your bedroom, maybe not going to throw enough light, but it is perfect for the intended use: reading in bed. Easy to clean with the dust brush nozzle of vacuum- just go over lightly from top to bottom. Only negative- not so attractive looking up at it from below, but otherwise, looks nice.
Dec 13, 2013
good bed lamps
After trying different lights that shined in our eyes or just glared, we found these. they are perfect for our needs, but won't fit on all headboards. For us they shine down perfectly and we can just pull the small chain to go to sleep. Nice.
Dec 07, 2013
Light when I need it :)
I like the idea, for a reading lamp. I sewed ribbon around the edges where the glue showed through when the light is on.
Nov 24, 2013
Nov 22, 2013
Not enough light
Love the look put it wouldn't fit over my padded headboard and the wattage was too low. Sad!
Nov 10, 2013
I have had my lamp for well over 10 years, still works great!! Would highly recomend this for every bedroom. I like to watch t.v. before i go to bed and when i get sleepy, i just pull the switch without having to get out of bed. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!
Oct 22, 2013
Love this light
Love this light, bought one for my boyfriend. I love that I can just reach up and shut it on or off.
Aug 12, 2013
Back for another light! Love them!
Bought a lamp a year ago, modified with a small board, since I don't have a head board, and screwed it to the wall. Getting another for the guest room which does have a head board. Love the pull chain! Getting groggy, just pull! Love these things!
Jul 09, 2013
No Problems and I love the way it looks.
We have a bookcase next to our fireplace that sits back a little way and that area is dark. We needed a little light in that area. I saw this lamp in one of your catalogs and figured I could use it in that corner. I had to improvise a piece of wood for the hooks to hang on, but it looks good and I really like it.
Jun 04, 2013
Bed lamp, I love my bed lamp,
perfect for me to read at night Over the years this is my second lamp like this, It has served me perfect.
Mar 21, 2013
Eagerly awaited light does not work!
I am dissapointed to have to take to repair before even using!
Mar 09, 2013
ok for what I needed
Unfortunately I had to modify the mounting, my headboard is quite thick. I had to add to the length of the wires and rebend them to mount on my headboard. It is the only light that would work where I needed it, and with some modificaton it now works well.
Mar 03, 2013
Nice but does not last
I like the product but I am on unit #3 as they do not last very long. Either the chain comes out or the socket stops working. Get it and hope for the best.
Jan 08, 2013
I would buy this product again,
I love this lamp, I will buy another..
Dec 29, 2012
Just right for our bed!
as you get older it is harder to reach bedside light.Now,all we have to do is pull the chain when we are ready to go to sleep.
Dec 26, 2012
Can't believe I waited so long to buy
Love it. Wish I hadn't waited so long to purchase.
Dec 25, 2012
Great light for reading
I got it to match one I have had for 5+ years.
Dec 25, 2012
Very Convenient!
Just what I was looking for! It works well when I'm sitting up in bed reading. I don't have to reach over to the nightstand to turn off the light when I'm ready to go to sleep.
Dec 08, 2012
just ok wouldnt buy it again
Cheap paper to make shade, lucky no kids at our house

Bed Light Makes A Difference
I read in bed every night which makes this lamp a plus due to problems with Glaucoma (eye disease). I also use it daily because the ceiling fan light fixture does not provide enough reading light overhead. The only problem is the bed's headboard and the hooks on the lamp don't fit perfectly, which causes it to slip off the headboard frequently. There should be several types of hooks designed to match different shaped headboards; which would make the lamp a perfect choice for additional lighting.
Oct 22, 2012
Very useful!
Makes the perfect light to read by or under in bed.
Sep 05, 2012
Great lamp!!
I ordered the cream and decided to use it over a sofa in the Living Room, between two windows. With the new energy saving compact fluorescent lightbulbs and the cream colored shade, it gives just enough light to read by without being overly bright. I had to improvise by using a close hanger suspended from the curtain rod brackets to set it up. It is a great addition for a small space. Something I needed and a lot cheaper than a swing lamp. Good job, Harriet!!
Sep 03, 2012
My head board is about 2" to wide. I would have to pull the hangers to far they won't hook. You should make the hooks fit over a square shape board then it would be perfect. To bad had to send it back.
Apr 04, 2012
Great Product. Innovative idea.
I use the lamp for reading and crocheting in bed. It is so handy because I don't have to get out of bed to turn the light off.
Apr 03, 2012
I would buy this product again.
This product is easy to use. It simply hangs on the headboard, but does fit nicely and does not damage the wood. The one downside is that the highest wattage lightbulb that can be used is 40 so the light is not very bright. Reading is ok if you keep the book close.
Mar 17, 2012
Great Deal!
I bought this bedlamp to replace a clip-on that was old and worn. It is the perfect color for my decor and fits the headboard very well. My old one swiveled and I would have liked this new one to do the same but even without that function this lamp works just great. The chain for the off and on is long enough so that if you are laying down you can just reach up and grab it.
Mar 07, 2012
Can't beat it for the money.
This is perfect for headboard lighting.
Mar 07, 2012
Works great. Good reading light for bed
We needed a small lamp for our new bed. My wife and I both like to read before going to sleep and the lamp is great.

Best thing I got in a long time and the price was good.I would tell everyone to buy it!!!!!
Feb 26, 2012
Love this! No more glare when I read
Great when reading in bed. No glare and real easy reach up and turn off. No more rolling over and reaching to turn lamp off.
Feb 14, 2012
It's perfect. I love it.
It does't get hot when it's time to turn it off. Appearance is very nice.
Feb 02, 2012
simply and easy
love this light,now it's easy to turn the light on in a hurry.
Jan 14, 2012
Great Shades
I have put it on my headboard for instant lighting when I need it. It's great to read by and handy to reach up and turn it on in the middle of the night. The lamp shade is pretty, and gives good lighting, comes in shades to match decor. I love it.
Jan 11, 2012
good looking..
Dec 06, 2011
Simple and works
This light sure beats a book light. Needed extra light to read in bed and this light works great. It fit my wicker headboard as well.
Nov 27, 2011
so hard to find one of these lights that doesn't break the bank! so easy to install, just drop it over the headboard, turn the light on and you can start reading. love it!
Nov 26, 2011
Cheap looking,you get what you pay for
I bought this to go above my Mothers bed.It is a useful product but does look pretty cheap but you get what you pay for so guess I cant complain
Oct 30, 2011
I would buy this product again and again
Wanted another light in the bedroom so I could read while husband is watching TV. This product helps me see the book and does not interfere with his watching the TV.
Sep 30, 2011
This was a replacement for a lost lamp
I lost my original lamp in a recent move and replaced it right away! I love it!
Sep 26, 2011
Worked Great on My Bed
I added a shielded floressant 40 watt light bulb
Sep 23, 2011
Great product. Ordered 2.
Sep 23, 2011
Bed Light
This puts light right where I want it...I read in bed at night and this allows me to have light in the right place and lets me remain in bed when finished reading and turn the light off without getting up!
Sep 06, 2011
Nice product
I like having this lamp in my bedroom. I don't often get a chance to read so at bedtime I find myself often pulling out a book to get a few chapters in before I fall asleep. This lamp works perfectly for this purpose. It's bright enough to provide good reading light without illuminating the entire room. It's pull chain is a nice length and I can just reach up and click this light on or off as needed without any hassel. The price was nice also. This is an item I would consider getting as gifts for others who I know like to read in bed.
Aug 24, 2011
nice light
This is a nice product, It was easy to install, but the area to screw in a light bulb was too small. the light wattage isnt adequate for bright light needed for reading. if you arent careful with it, the lightbulb will touch the shade and possible cause a meltdown.
Aug 23, 2011
I love this lamp.
It fits over the headboard of the bed nicely.
Aug 18, 2011
Bed Light
My mom had one I bought her years ago, it finally wore out. Thank goodness I found Harriet Carter still carried them.
Aug 09, 2011
The lamp is perfect for reading in bed.
I love to read in bed and my bedside table lamp just didn't give me enough light. The over-headboard lamp is just perfect. It gives plenty of light for reading comfortably, and its also very attractive. Just what I was looking for.
Jul 23, 2011
Slightly disapointed
Disapointed, light should focus away from face @ directed toward reading material..perhaps frame could be designed to "spot light" read'g material. The product is attractive, serves the purpose but could be improved.
Jul 09, 2011
Love it. It's just right!
I have been wanting this lamp for years. it is perfect for all of my needle and yarn work in bed.
Jun 22, 2011
Picture and description of bedlamp are excellent. Product is perfect for my need and expectation.
May 29, 2011
Does what it says!
smooth pull chain

i use this over my bed.
May 08, 2011
Just what I needed
I wanted a light for over my bed to read by at bedtime.This one works very well and no holes in the wall.If I move the bed the light goes with it.
Apr 25, 2011
Great help
The lamp puts out just the right amount of light. If it is difficult for you to reach the lamps on the endtables then this will solve your problem.
Apr 23, 2011
recommend highly
This light puts the shine right on my books so I can read much better. I like to read before going to sleep. Could not get any regular lamp to do that. And it looks really nice.
Apr 18, 2011
Wouldn't be without this
This is the second one I had and would have the first one yet but my grandaughter fell against the first one and broke it, thanks to Hariet Carter, this is the only place I could find another one.
Apr 02, 2011
just what we needed
Used in bedroom for reading an getting up at night.
Mar 23, 2011
Great product for the price!
Great when I want to read a book while in my bed. Good looking and bright enough to light up a room.Hooks in the back should be wider and longer.
Mar 20, 2011
Bed light extrodinaire.....
I am totally satisfied with my product! It came exactly as I expected, and in a very timely fasion. Very pleased!

Feb 27, 2011
Exactly what I wanted.
Has the perfect amount of light to read by but doesn't disturb my husband.
Feb 23, 2011
The Lamp is a very good item to have
The Lamps (2) that we brought for our bedroom was a very good item to have. We both like to read in bed before bedtime and it gives out just enough light. The color we chose was very pretty and it was easy to install and use. One thing though is to have a high headboard so that it does not bother with hitting your head or your pillow. We do like the lamps very much. GREAT ITEM !
Feb 21, 2011
Love it!!!
I got this light bed several years ago for my bed, and just bought a few more for my other rooms as I found it as a best solution for adding extra light in other rooms. You can hang it anywhere where you need an extra light and don't need any wall installation for that. Absolute savior!!!
Feb 17, 2011
I would buy this again.
I have been looking for this kind of lamp for a long time. It is just what I wanted.
Feb 16, 2011
Practical Product ! ! ! !
I use this great product in my small bedroom. I don't have extra space for a night stand. I have ordered at least five of these from different catalogs. I have ordered this for family gifts. I was dissatisfied with only one that had a minor flaw in fabric. I have had a stroke and I don't have to fumble for a light switch as on a ordinary lamp.
Nov 30, 2010
i would buy the lamp over & over
I love to read and in bed is were i do the reading so before i got my lamp i had to get out of bed to turn the light off now i have a few minutes more for reading it is great.i am going to buy another in a green.
