While these lights can be installed on the wall next to the bed more often than not they are installed over the headboard of the bed on each side of the bed, or a two headed wall reading light may be placed in the center of the headboard where one light of the head is used for each side of the bed.
Various Style of Wall Reading Lights
There are a lot of different styles of wall mounted reading lights. Some of these lights are recessed into the wall with an adjustable head while others have adjustable necks.

Although they are more common in hotels or bed and breakfast establishments than homes due to the fact that most homeowners tend to move their furniture around quite a bit, which makes wall mounted lights less convenient in residences unless you plan on leaving your bed in the same place.
